Jay-Z's show-stealing verse from Meek Mill's Championships album included a jab at President Donald Trump.

On the track, "What's Free," Jay skewers Trump about his "Make America Great Again Hat," while also refusing to allow the media to pit him and Kanye in a tireless spat against each other. "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***as you bought/My house like a resort, my house bigger than yours/My spo -- c’mon, man -- my route better of course," Jay raps.

Jay has been vocal about his disdain for Trump on a bevy of occasions, most notably on his collaborative single "Salud" with Beyonce, which dropped earlier this year. "Angels on both sides, toast with mimosas/ Your president tweeting about Hov like he knows us/ My road to the top was to take what you owe us/ I give a fuck what that man find vulgar/ Just look in my eyes when you toast us," Jay dished out.

Hov's lyrical assault on Trump came after the president fired a tweet aimed at the Brooklyn MC last January. "Somebody please inform Jay-Z that because of my policies, Black Unemployment has just been reported to be at the LOWEST RATE EVER RECORDED!"
