The one time friends apparently have had a rocky relationship but some have said that the song shouldn't be interpreted as an attack on Kanye.
Jay-Z hinted at his displeasure with Donald Trump and one-time best friend Kanye West's politics — and the media storm surrounding them — in a new song.
In a verse on Meek Mill's "What's Free," released late Thursday, Jay-Z, whose real name is Shawn Carter, 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 spo — c'mon, man — my route better of course."
He later referenced West's remarks that slavery was a choice, spitting, "My hair free, care-free. N-----s ain't near free. Enjoy your chains, what's your employer name? With the hairpiece?”
Jay-Z, 48, has distanced himself from West, 41, ever since West lashed out at him, his wife Beyoncé and Hillary Clinton in an onstage rant in November 2016.
