Forever Young by Jay-Z
There's no doubt in my mind that Jay-Z employs Jungian terminology in his lyrics. It was actually a Jay-Z that I heard him say Young and realized that he just might be saying Jung... and so I started listening to Jay-Z with a whole new set of expectations. It also caused me to start researching more about C.G. Jung and learn more about how Jay-Z might be using the psychologist's principles to be talking with symbols in his videos and lyrics. I'd say there is a diamond mine of material to look through, but that my theory is well-discovered, espescially throughout the Black Album and Blueprint 3 and several songs he records with Kanye West.
