Did JAY-Z Diss Kanye West In New Meek Mill Track?
JAY-Z has spoken out about Kanye West’s support of President Donald Trump on a new Meek Mill track, “What’s Free” from Meek’s album Championships.
Now, fans are questioning whether what he had to say was a diss — or merely minor shade. (We think the former.)
JAY-Z raps in the track, “No red hat, don’t Michael and Prince me and Ye / They separate you when you got Michael and Prince’s DNA.” That line seems to address Kanye’s well-publicized love for #MAGA hats and the famous rivalry between Michael Jackson and Prince, who challenged each other for R&B supremacy throughout the ’80s.
But the next line goes like this:
“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…” JAY-Z later raps, “My hair free, carefree, n—s ain’t near free / Enjoy your chains, what’s your employer name? With the hairpiece?”
So… is he saying that Trump employs Kanye like a slave owner? WTF. Are we about to see a whole other feud now?
Did Jay Z just take shots at Kanye in this New meek mill record??!!?
