Jay-Z Denies Kanye Diss On Meek Mill's Song 'What's Free': 'Don't Pit Me Against My Brothers'
While Twitter continues to marvel at Jay-Z's lyrical acrobatics on Meek Mill's Championships standout track, "What's Free," Hov took the time out today (Nov. 30) to clarify one of his lyrics, which many assumed was a jab at Kanye West.
On "What's Free," Jay rapped the following: "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 spou -- c’mon, man -- my route better of course."
Hov then rebuked claims that suggested he sent shots at West, and explained the meaning behind his lyrics on Twitter. "The line clearly meant don’t pit me against my brothers no matter what our differences are (red hat) now go pick up Meek album. Drake and Meek on there together," Jay wrote.
Though fans were certain that Hov was firing away at Kanye, his target on "What's Free" was more than likely Donald Trump, who earlier this year skewered Hov for his critical remarks regarding his presidency during his interview on CNN's Van Jones Show. "Somebody please inform Jay-Z that because of my policies, Black Unemployment has just been reported to be at the LOWEST RATE EVER RECORDED!" he tweeted.
