Someday, Richard Attenborough will make a movie about Jay-Z

The value of history. How else could we live in a world where Fifty Cent compares Jay-Z to Gandhi:

"Jay-Z is Gandhi... He'll bear the disrespect for what? For working to be in a great position. So for creating the comfort that he desires for his life, he has to bear the disrespect. Because they'd like to be where he is. That's an interesting concept because Jay (would) rather just let 'em go.

"My take on it is, yeah, I'm gonna say something back, and he gonna wish he never said what he said. He gonna wish he never came around here sniffing around me."

Yes, of course. The disrespecting the British Raj used to give Gandhi for creating the comfort he wanted for his life - they would just mock, mock, mock whenever he went out with some new bling or started dating someone fabulous.

So, Jay-Z is Gandhi. What does that, though, make Fiddy's self-confessed uncontrolled, hot back self? I'm somehow picturing him as a kind of Hulk figure. Only with much better jewelery.
