Jay-Z Slams Kanye’s Trump Support in New Song

Kanye has been criticized by many in the entertainment industry over his support of President Donald Trump. Now it seems he has a new critic. Jay-Z has openly criticized Kanye in a new song.

According to Fox News:

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.

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.
