Jay-Z stopped by Ed Lover’s Power 105.1 radio show and dropped another nickname for himself: “Jigga the Greek,” referencing the late sports commentator and bookie Jimmy the Greek.
Hov predicted the New York Jets would be up against the Dallas Cowboys in this year’s Super Bowl.
“Cowboys, that’s my pop’s team — what I’mma do? The Cowboys and the Jets in the Super Bowl. I’m gonna put that out there,” he said.
However, we asked around, and fellow Brooklynite Fabolous said Jay is a little off.
“The Jets got a lot of spirit right now,” Loso said. “I ain’t gonna lie. Jay is just pro-New York. He would love for the Jets to be there. It’s a lot of hard teams they would have to beat — the Chargers this week. I would love to see the Jets in there. Going into it, they have the spirit of the Cinderella team. It would be dope for them to be in there, but my Colts are not going down, brother. Sorry.
“Of course my Colts are going to the Super Bowl. NFC wise, it’s a little tough over there. The Cowboys are playing good ball. I don’t think [Cowboys quarterback Tony] Romo is consistent. The Saints, I think, toward the end of the year after that loss, they haven’t been playing the same. The Vikings … I’m a little shaky with Brett Favre. The Cardinals, I’m a little shaky too. If I had to take one, I would say the Cowboys right now and the Colts.”
Jermaine Dupri agreed. “It’s gonna be the Cowboys and the Colts. I’m a Cowboys fan. I always been a Cowboys fan. That’s my team,” the producer explained. “I personally don’t think the Colts gonna make it. They got the best chance to make it, but the Cowboys definitely going. That Brett Favre sh–, a quarterback can’t beat us. Brett Favre, Adrian Peterson — if they can’t stop our running game this weekend, they got a problem. Then the Saints, we seen them get beat. I think Ray Lewis and [the Ravens] got a chance of going back to the Super Bowl. They’re a team that’s been there and people count them out — then here they come, they done beat New England. I just think they gonna show and prove differently from what people know.”
