The term jumped the shark was born during an episode of Happy Days when the once cool Fonzie jumped a shark on waterskis.

It’s a term that’s applied when a once popular show or public figure reaches a point where everything they do is dumb and dumber.

If you haven’t been following this ridiculous rap beef between Jay Z and some random DC rapper named Proverb, here’s a little background. And here’s the answer track by this dude Proverb:

Jay Z’s over exaggerated sense of self-importance is bordering on the narcissistic. I mean, jumping in the middle of some basketball beef involving a Soulja Boy diss by LeBron James? Come on, how corny is that?

He wouldn’t respond to the charges that he fathered a child and paid the baby mama for her silence, but he’ll respond to this nonsense? How low will this guy stoop for attention? How’s the water, Jay Z?

    There is no beef btwn he & Proverb. He’s just a n*gga trying to come up with this “diss” record. Rocks at the thrown basically.

    Shout out to the DMV!!!

    Yeah Proverb has no beef with Jay personally he’s just addressing the disrespect that went down on Love on Friday!!!

    May I also add a F U to Love Nightclub. I hate that place and that damn detox room. Security there are some straight bogus homophobes. They kiss the ASS of the celebrities. There’s a no smoking ban in DC yet Rick Ross can come on stage smoking weed AND pass it out to the fans with no problem. Overrated bustas

    **YAWN**

    NEXT!!

    Jay – excuse me – Shawn, you have diminished your legacy. I still respect you as one of the best that ever did it, but The Black Album should have been your last album – at least for a couple of years. American Gangster was actually a pretty good record – so that should have been your first release. All this other stuff you have done? Hasn’t all been up to par, sir. I cringed listening to that Mariah remix and wondered why you ever got on that in the first place. You’ve also partially diminished Roc-a-Fella’s AND Def Jam’s legacy. And now this? You didn’t address Cam’Ron & Jim Jones, but you get into this basketball beef?! Really?!

  • MUNCHOSGIRL

    THIS WAS NOT MEANT TO BE A DISS RECORD. I LISTENED TO IT, WHEN DID HE CALL DESHAWN NAME?

    SANDRA HE DID ADRESS THE RUMOR OF HIM BEING THE FATHER OF LITTLE BOY WHOM YOU ACT AS IF YOU CARRIED FOR NINE MONTHS. HE SAID HE WAS NOT HIS CHILD IN THIS ANGIE MARTINEZ INTERVIEW AUGUST OF 2007. WAS HE SUPPOSED TO GIVE YOU THE EXCLUSIVE?

    I bet Jay and Bey love all this free publicity you give them. I guess you didnt get the memo Sandra. Any publicity whether good or bad is still good publicity. You are not hurting Jay or Bey one bit with your delusional opinions. The fact that they are talked about every day speaks for itself. This was obviously not a diss so keep trying Sandra.LOL

  • DCREALEST

    firstly, why does Proverb have to be “random”?
    secondly, Proverb track is way better than Jay-Z
    lastly and more importantly why is Jay-Z doing a diss track and he didn’t even do a record for Sean Bell from his own state. hmmmmm????

  • krbinc

    jay can’t beat grown mens! cause NAS bury him back in da days so he gotta fu#k with a non-rapper to stay ahead!

  • chat bout

    doesn’t the knowls have some yard work for jay-z to do? he needs to get to it and stop with this foolishness.

  • MOCHAMOMMY

    If I’m not mistaken, DeShawn said LeBron was overrated & LeBron responded to that by saying “Me commenting on that would be like Jay Z beefing with Soulja Boy… Pointless.” What I dont understand is devote any energy or space on your site to someone u claim to hate? Where’s Rihanna in all this? What does she think? LOL

  • Coop

    @Sandra

    Deshawn brought Jay into it when he threw up the ROC sign at Labron and acted as if he was slashing his throat. And who care if the Wizards don’t go to Love or Park there the two best clubs in DC other then H2O and it has to close early so where else will they go. and Sandra Jay did address the baby issue so why don’t you post it.

    Ok, so Proverb is not “random,” – it’s just that until now, he hasn’t been on a national stage (just like Jae Millz, Dirt Bag, Grafh, Red Cafe, etc. here in NY. People up here know who they are, but not everyone on a national level knows them like they would know a 50 Cent & Jay-Z). The way I hear it, people are giving your boy props for his record – and I did like that line ,”I told ’em Wizards all day/It’s almost summer/I’mma make it blizzard all May.”

    And FYI, I think rappers who make records about Sean Bell are simply capitalizing because they know black folks are mad about the verdict.

    WHERE WERE ALL THE SEAN BELL RECORDS WHEN HE WAS SHOT? OR DURING THE TRIAL? Only now do you see a bunch different people trying to do a Sean Bell record. AND WHO AMONG THESE PEOPLE HAS DONATED ANY SINGLE SALES OR PROCEEDS TO BELL’S FAMILY AND DAUGHTER FOR HER COLLEGE EDUCATION? IN FACT, WHY HAVEN’T THESE RAPPERS GOTTEN TOGETHER TO PUT ON A BENEFIT SHOW, PROMOTED IT THROUGH HOT 97 AND AL SHARPTON’S ORGANIZATION, AND DONATED THE MONEY?

    I think it’s shameless self-promotion. Period.

  • MUNCHOSGIRL

    Jay didn’t make a record but he did give Nicole Bell and her children a platform. She is featured in his I WILL NOT LOSE Campagine.

    Jay didn’t make this to be a diss record either.

    According to Jay-Z, the song wasn’t meant to diss anyone…it wasn’t even supposed to be released. When Hov was in Oakland he played Too Short’s version while he was on stage and the crowd went bananas. This prompted him to record a 2:00 Freestyle to the track. He sent it to Lebron while he was out in D.C. hoping to get the honarary Roc-A-Fella member amped, and Lebron thought it would be a good idea to give it to a DJ at a local night club.

    Jay-Z is too old for this.

  • heavn_sent

    Y’all are killing me! Thank u to everyone from the DMV for telling all these bamas that have no real idea what’s going on the truth (DC stand up)!! Goodness gracious!! Do any of you have any idea how much he’s worth? I mean seriously, why is this so important?? Way bigger fish to fry black people..way bigger fish.

  • istandbehindtheIam

    LOL…this beef is ridiculously immature with all involved..isn’t Jay Z pushing up on 40?…lol…keeping it real, James and Stevenson need to slow they roll, ’cause they are EMPLOYED in a white man’s league and no white fan base wants to see the NBA turn into some ghetto gangsta street brawl. Do your talkin’ on that hardwood and screw all that dumb ish.

    Besides, we all know Kobe’s the best player in the NBA!…lol!
