Now that we have had some time to digest this Jay-Z ‘4:44’ album, some lyrics that have been highlighted from the album sounded like there were some shots taken at Kanye West.
The lyrics that are in question as a Kanye diss:
“I know people backstab you, I feel bad too / But this f*** everybody attitude ain’t natural / But you ain’t the same, this ain’t KumbaYe / But you got hurt because you did cool by ‘Ye / You gave him 20 million without thinkin’ / He gave you 20 minutes on stage, f*** was he thinkin’? / ‘F*** wrong with everybody?’ is what you sayin’ / But if everybody’s crazy, you’re the one that’s insane”
According to TMZ, “Kanye West isn’t sweating Jay-Z’s diss … unless he just hasn’t heard it. Yeezus was at his studio in Calabasas Friday looking happy, healthy, and oblivious to Jay’s new lyrics …” But, according to some other critics on the matter, there will be some response from Kanye. On the Joe Budden Podcast, the topic came up and the group decided to dive into the discussion. Mal, Budden’s co-host said, “I had a cool little conversation with Kanye in LA. He said he’s got a few words in response to what Jay had on ‘4:44’ when his next record comes out”.
