Gilbert Arenas and his guns make a Jay-Z verse

It was only a matter of time, obviously.

“Got me bringing guns to work, Gilbert Arenas,” is a line Jay-Z uses in a verse on the recently leaked collaboration between him and Dr. Dre called “Under Pressure.” The track is supposedly on Dre’s upcoming Detox album, the release of which has been anticipated since before Antawn Jamison ever wore a Washington Wizards uniform.

Some music critics have pointed out that Jay-Z’s lyrics on “Under Pressure”, which also mention the Tiger Woods sex scandal, are rather stale.

I’ll point out that Arenas likely didn’t bring guns to work because of any kind of pressure he was under, or because of the “haters”, as Jay-Z’s line associates his actions.

It kinda paints Arenas as a thug, kinda … I’m taking liberties here. Hence, that sorta makes Wizards players 0-2 in their last two mentions by Jay-Z in a verse. Blow the whistle indeed.
