Names in My 1st Song
October 5, 2012 9:59 AM   Subscribe

Who are all the people Jay-Z is name-dropping/calling out at the end of 'My 1st Song'

Lyrics are here.

Bigs is obvious, but how about these (and honestly, some of these might just be words to take space/make the rhyme not names, call me ignorant & correct me if that's the case):

Yo Hah
Carlene
Lenny S
Dame
Original Flavor
Rudy
Emory
Ta-Tah
Hip-Hop
Hobb
Guru
OG One
Dash
Bob Allah

Any I missed?

Thanks kindly!

Not to rub salt in the wound... but it was the 2nd (non-you-tube) hit for 'Jay-z my first song'. Sometimes the simplest googling is the best googling :)
