I know EVERY sneaker blog has pointed out the fact that JAY-Z used John Stricklands famous ("Finish Your Breakfast")line in 2004 on Public Service Announcement. The difference with KG is we really live the culture. Check out this exclusive documentary about the "JAY-Z vs FAT JOE" Rucker Park game. This was where "STRICK" made that line famous (24:24 mark).
