“Beyoncé! Bring Me The Ax!” Jay-Z Samples “Mommie Dearest” On New Track

jay-z-dearestJay-Z may not be known for his camp sensibility, but this is the man that turned Broadway’s Annie into a ghetto anthem after all. So perhaps it’s no surprise that Blue Ivy’s father/Beyoncé’s husband/Solange’s brother-in-law has sampled the campiest of camp classic’s — Mommie Dearest on his upcoming Magna Carta album.

On “Jay-Z Blue (Daddy Dearest)” Faye Dunaway’s wrongly-maligned histrionic tour de force can be heard at length, including her warning to those assholes at PepsiCo who clearly didn’t know how to treat an Oscar-winning star — “Don’t fuck with me fellas! This ain’t my first time at the rodeo!” — while the immortal  “No…wire…hangers…EVER!” serves as the song’s hook.

The song’s intro also features one of Crawford’s (many) verbal assaults on her daughter, that ungrateful brat Christina:

“I work and work ‘till I’m half-dead, and I hear people saying, ‘She’s getting old,’ and what do I get? A daughter who cares as much about the beautiful dresses I give her as she cares about ME!”

Oddly enough, the song is a tribute to Blue Ivy and not a glimpse into Beyonce’s morning routine. Check out “Jay-Z Blue (Daddy Dearest)” below:

      Great song except for all that R&B in the middle.

      Faye Dunaway doesn’t even like to acknowledge Mommie Dearest. I honestly wonder how she feels about this sampling. C’mon, Faye. It’s time to get over yourself and accept it. Bitch be camp.

      Has rap and hip/hop finally jumped the shark?

      gee – it only took 31 years for hip hop to get hip – and since hip hop itself is 34 years old, that’s a sorry-ass record…
