Friend or Foe ’98

Friend or Foe ’98

JAY-Z

This is the sequel to the song “Friend or Foe” from Reasonable Doubt. This continues the narrative, with the “foe” from the 1996 version not heeding Jay’s warning:

Before you leave, I guess I ought to let you know, I need those keys
And promise you never, no matter the weather
Everevereverevereverever come around here no more

In the video for the track that featured on the short film Streets Is Watching, Jay and his crew can be seen pulling up on the hotel his foes have used as a base for their operations. He delivers his lines, before ultimately shooting and killing them.
