A Star Is Born

This song is by Jay-Z and J. Cole and appears on the album The Blueprint 3 (2009).

Everyday a star is born
Clap for em, clap for em, clap for em
Everyday a star is born
Clap for em, clap for em, clap for em
Hey

Jay-Z
I seen Mase do it, I seen Ye do it
X came through, caught lighter fluid
Still I came through it
Clap for em
But I'm the blueprint
I'm like the map for em
I dropped another classic
Made Puff pass it
Nobody could touch Puff back when Puff had it
Wayne scorching, I'll applaud him
If he keep going, pass the torch to him
50 came through like hurricanes do
Thought I'd finish his ass at summerjam too
I had the Illmatic on bootleg
Sh-t was so ahead, thought we was all dead
Wayne did a millie, 50 did a millie
Ye too, but what Em did was silly
The white boy blossomed after Dre endorsed him
His flow on Renegade, f-cking awesome
Applaud him

Everyday a star is born
Clap for em, clap for em, clap for em
Everyday a star is born
Clap for em, clap for em, clap for em
Hey

Snoop Dogg did, Nelly came down
The Face Mob, kept it ghetto for the H town
Luda moved digits after he moved b-tches
Drake's up next, see what he do with it
Rule had a run, couple movie parts
T.I literally wanted to shoot up the charts
Wat up Jeezy, wat it do
Y'all remind me of us in early 92
Outcast landed, 3 thou was ill
Like a male version of Lauren Hill
Mobb Deep shook it but Prodigy took it a lil too far
Can't f-ck with Brooklyn
Wu Tang gang bang, Meth ate
Rae' took on the date with the Purple Tape
Passed on to Ason (?) and then Ghostface

They had a hell of a run
Standing Ova, ay

Everyday a star is born
Clap for em, clap for em, clap for em
Everyday a star is born
Clap for em, clap for em, clap for em
Hey

And I am one of one
Can't you see just along my front
My brain new lou sun shine
Been a star since I was back in one time
One time give it up for him
December 4th a star was born
Clap for him
He went from moving that corner
To this corner office is so enormous
Hey, Pres Carter
Watch him get a Monica on all day
Hey
Got so many monikers but only 1 Jay
They come they go
Some real some foe
Some friends some hoes
But no I goes nowhere this Hov

Everyday a star is born
Clap for em, clap for em, clap for em
Everyday a star is born
Clap for em, clap for em, clap for em
Hey

J. Cole
And could I be a star
This fame and this game have to change who you are
Could I be the same one who came from a far away life
Just to make it in this broadway lights
Now shining in the broad day light, go figure
A slow transition from a lil broke n-gga from the Ville
Got a deal a real life saver
Dreams of being behind the wheel like Jada
I chill now a lil ice later, Cole you go the glow like a lil lightsaber
So clap for him, then applaud Hov, he gave 'em a plat for him
Flow so sick thought he wrote the rap for him
No sir
The flows cold as a shoulder of a gold digging hoes when a broke n-gga approaches
Told ya I'm focused man, I'll let you muthf-ckers soak it in

Everyday a star is born
Clap for em, clap for em, clap for em
Everyday a star is born
Clap for em, clap for em, clap for em
Hey
