Well that was quick!
Jay Z dropped his new album 4:44 at midnight on Friday morning and already folks are responding to his soon to be famous lyrics. Of the folks commenting, singer Eric Benet, whose name was dropped on a track called “Kill Jay Z.”
On the song, Jay compares himself to Benet, who cheated on his now ex-wife, Halle Berry. “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—as playin’ football with your son.”
In response, Benet tweeted just two hours after the album’s release: “Hey yo #Jayz! Just so ya know, I got the baddest girl in the world as my wife….like right now!”
Benet married Manuella Testolini back in 2011. To put things in perspective of how hot his wife is — Testolini is the ex-wife of the late iconic singer, Prince. Manuella was married to The Purple One from 2001 to 2006.
