After its highly anticipated release on Tidal, listeners took to Twitter to speculate that the lyrics on the opening track, Kill Jay Z, could widen the feud between Jay Z and Kanye West.
Despite the pair working together on hit album Watch The Throne in 2011, the friendship between the duo is said to have become turbulent after Kanye claimed that Jay Z “never reached out in person” to find out how his wife Kim Kardashian was after she was shockingly robbed at gunpoint in Paris.
Fans have now claimed that Jay’s track, which has already sparked controversy for seemingly hinting that he “cheated” on Beyoncé, also takes a dig at the Yeezy rapper.
Kill Jay Z lyrics
Kill JAY-Z, they’ll never love you
You’ll never be enough, let’s just keep it real, JAY-Z
F**k JAY-Z, I mean, you shot your own brother
How can we know if we can trust JAY-Z?
And you know better, n***a, I know you do
But you gotta do better, boy, you owe it to Blue
You had no father, you had the armor
But you got a daughter, gotta get ster
Die JAY-Z, this ain’t back in the days
You don’t need an alibi, JAY-Z
Cry JAY-Z, we know the pain is real
But you can’t heal what you never reveal
What’s up, JAY-Z?
You know you owe the truth to all the youth
That fell in love with JAY-Z
You got people you love you sold drugs to
You got high on the life, that s**t drugged you!
You walkin’ around like you invincible
You dropped outta school, you lost your principles
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
You gave him 20 million without blinkin’
He gave you 20 minutes on stage, f**k was he thinkin’?
“F**k wrong with everybody?” is what you sayin’
But if everybody’s crazy, you’re the one that’s in sane
Crazy how life works
You got a knot in your chest, imagine how a knife hurts
You stabbed Un over some records
Your excuse was “He was talkin’ too reckless!”
Let go your ego over your right shoulder
You’re left is sayin’, “Finish your breakfast!”
You egged Solange on
Knowin’ all along, all you had to say you was wrong
You almost went Eric Benét
Let the baddest girl in the world get away
I don’t even know what else to say
N***a, never go Eric Benét !
I don’t even know what you woulda done
In the Future, other n****s playin’ football with your son
You wouldv’e lost it
13 bottles Ace Spade, what it did to Boston
