Hip Hop icon Jay-Z dropped his surprise album 4:44 last week on the music distribution service Tidal.
The album became available to everyone on Friday.
The album portrays a man that is coming into his own as a mogul, as well as a father embracing new responsibilities.
There is much to dissect about the new album, but the headline story of the LP is Jay-Z’s diss of his former protégé Kanye West.
Kanye got his start with Jay-Z, and has gone on to become an international superstar in his own regard.
Jay-Z went at Kanye West, brutalizing his former producer on the track.
“I know people backstab you I felt bad too. But this f*** 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. You gave him $20 million without blinkin’. He gave you 20 minutes on stage, f*** was he thinking’? f*** wrong with everybody is what you sayin’. But if everybody’s crazy, you’re the one that’s insane.”
There has been rampant speculation about why this took place, even Kanye West was blindsided.
TMZ has uncovered the genesis of Hov’s anger, when Kanye West put Beyoncé on blast last year during a concert in Sacramento, he ran afoul of Jay Z.
Kanye West was not well when this rant took place, he was committed to a mental health facility days after this took place.
But Jay-Z clearly does not care, Kanye attacked him and his wife for no reason whatsoever, and this is after Jay-Z put Kanye on.
There might not a Kayne West without Jay-Z.
Kayne West is working on his new album, and he will have much to atone for.
He cut a tour last year because of his backlash from his fans, and the media, and now he has Jay-Z breathing down his neck.
Kayne has never been the person to back down from anybody, but apologizing to the most powerful couple in entertainment might be the best route this go around.
This is Kanye West however, nobody would be surprised if he preparing to take Jay-Z down on his next album.
