Through the years, we’ve learned that if we simply wait long enough, Jay-Z will always use his masterful rhymes to address any and all smoke that comes his way.
The latest example of that comes in the form of some new bars Hov spit on the Pusha T track “Neck & Wrist” that appear to take aim at actor Faizon Love following some recent remarks he made about the Roc Nation boss.
In the song that dropped at midnight on Wednesday (April 6), some of Jay’s lyrics suggest that he didn’t take too kindly to the Friday star’s claims that the drug dealer-turned-mogul had never actually sold any drugs at all, which he said in interviews with DJ Vlad back in both July and December of 2020.
“The phase I’m on, love, I wouldn’t believe it either / I’d be like, JAY-Z’s a cheater / I wouldn’t listen to reason either / All I know is he’s a felon, how is he sellin’?” Hov skillfully rapped on the braggadocious new feature.
The impressive display of wordplay seemingly addresses Love’s many claims that Hov’s detailed history of running a drug operation is nothing more than an embellishment of his rap persona.
“Jay-Z creates this whole, I’m a drug dealer, I’m a drug lord. These kids… we gotta do it too. To be like Jay-Z.” Faizon said in the interview. “Not knowing that this is all made-up shit.”
The actor then went on to imply that while Jay was closely associated with known drug dealers such as DeHaven, it was never he himself who took part in any of the dirty work.
