“Industry is shady, it needs to be taken over / Label owners hate me, I’m raising the status quo up / I’m overcharging niggas for what they did to the Cold Crush / Pay us like you owe us for all the years that you hoed us / We can talk, but money talks, so talk more bucks”– Jay-Z

That was a short verse from “IZZO” by Jay-Z. That was a huge hit but not a lot of people understand what he was doing with that lyric. It leaves us with a lot of questions. Who or what are the Cold Crush? What happened to them? And why does Jay-Z feel so bitter towards the entire situation?
