Meek Mill dropped his “Championships” album last night and, of course, it’s already in heavy rotation for the hip-hop heads. But, the song that is most buzzed about thus far is the track “What’s Free” featuring Jay Z and Rick Ross.
The song, set to Biggie’s “What’s Beef” beat, delves into many poignant topics in today’s culture — most notably was incarcerations and race relations in this country.
While Meek raps about his frustrations with the justice system, and Rick waxes poetic about his place in hip hop (and even takes a shot at Tekashi 69), it’s Jay Z’s bars about Trump and Kanye West that seem to have folks a bit confused.
No red hat, don’t Michael and Prince me and Ye/
They separate you when you got Michael and Prince’s DNA, uh/
I ain’t one of these house ni**as you bought/
My house like a resort, my house bigger than yours/
My spou- (C’mon, man)/
My route better, of course.
Clearly, the “red hat” reference brings attention to the MAGA hat that Ye (and most all Trump supporters) don. But, it’s the “house ni**as” line that had people wondering if the shots at Trump were now directly aimed at Ye. Is West the house ni**a?
Welp, worry no more. The Jigga Man may not frequent social media, but when it comes to confusion about his lyrics, he’s quick to step in and squash the noise.
Straight from the horse’s mouth! As Jay has mentioned in the past, he and Ye are more than friends, they’re brothers. And just like with any sibling relationship there will be highs and lows. But, don’t get it twisted, Jay ain’t with this Trump-is at all.
Take a listen to “What’s Free” and tell us what you think…
