The lyrics on JAY-Z‘s new album 4:44 are generating so much buzz and among the buzzworthy moments is when the rapper calls out his former friend Kanye West.
“I know people backstab you, I felt bad too. But this ‘f–k everybody’ attitude ain’t natural. But you ain’t a Saint, this ain’t KumbaYe. But you got hurt because you did cool by ‘Ye,” Jay raps on the song “Kill Jay Z.”
“You gave him 20 million without blinkin’, He gave you 20 minutes on stage, f–k was he thinkin’?” Jay continued. “‘F–k wrong with everybody?’ is what you sayin’. But if everybody’s crazy, you’re the one that’s insane.”
During one of his last concerts in November of last year, Kanye pleaded with Jay to call him. He also referenced their relationship at an October tour stop, where he said their friendship became “political” over percentages on songs. He added that Jay didn’t reach out to him after his wife Kim Kardashian was robbed in Paris.
