While many interpreted this as Jay Z still holding on to his long-running feud with his former friend Kanye West, however Jay-Z addressed the thorny issue with his guest spot on a track on Meek Mill’s new album “Championships.”
In the song “What’s Free,” which also features Rick Ross, Jay-Z raps:
No red hat, don’t Michael and Prince me and Ye,
They separate you when you got Michael and Prince’s DNA,
I ain’t one of these house n****s you bought,
My house like a resort, my house bigger than yours,
My spou ― c’mon, man ― my route better of course…
Later in the song, he adds:
My hair free, carefree, n****s ain’t near free.
Enjoy your chains, what’s your employer name? With the hairpiece?
This is Meek Mill’s first album since his April release from prison following a probation violation. In May, he pulled out of an event in which he was slated to talk with Trump about prison reform.
Despite frequent stories about the rocky relationship between Jay-Z and West, the “4:44” rapper is letting the world know he doesn’t want anyone to divide them. This statement follows comments that Jay made about West to David Letterman back in April.
