    Long story short, Jay-Z's not form London but the US so it didn't make sense for him to be in on this song.

    I mean,why would a song where Ed and Stormzy are talking about going back to their home feature someone who has fuck all to do with England never mind London? If Jay-Z is as smart as everyone says and hasnt just given his money to smart people to invest,he will eventually do a collaboration with Stormzy if and when he's doing a project. Forget how good the song was at the end of they day,the friendship Stormz and Ed share is something thats apparent and the collaboration makes sense.

    It wouldn't have been authentic cuz Jay gotta ask about London to write a verse about London 🤷🏻‍♂️ glad he turned him down

  • In The Beginning Was The Word

    That’s a great story and I totally understand why he didn’t want Jay Z on that particular song.

    Storm z & Jay Z Collaboration is not yet on the horizon.
    Makes no sense bringing in Jay Z on a song that has already hit..
    It's better thru go for another song where there can be a more concentrated emotion towards the topic of the song.
    I support storm z
