A prelude to The Blueprint 3 released right after Obama’s victory; Jay explains his thoughts and encounters as he’s on his way to Victory, which he metaphorically depicts as a woman

He also has some run-ins with Success and Defeat (also women)

The product of Jay-Z’s success in finding Victory will be him making History, portrayed as Jay’s son whose role in life will be to make sure Jay-Z isn’t forgotten

The extended conceits and parables reminds me of Lupe Fiasco’s Michael Young History in “The Cool” saga
