In a new clip, Fif admits JAY went too sophisticated on 4:44 and thinks he spent too much energy worried about the new rap generation.
“I just got back from the gym. I listened to JAY’s sh*t, that 4:44. I thought the sh*t was aight, I like the sh*t but I’ma keep it 100, the sh*t was too smart. I felt like I was supposed to be wearing like glasses and sh*t and a tie like a f*cking sweater around my waist – like Ivy League sh*t. Now, I’m gonna give you the truth. N*ggas is high out here so they don’t wanna hear that sh*t. They just wanna have a good time. And f*ck that, you can’t be the best rapper at 47 because the new n*ggas is here. They’re coming with new sh*t – they up, they up next. You gotta let the young n*ggas come in. He’s f*cking with Future and all this other sh*t, leave them n*ggas alone, B, what the f*ck is the matter with you, man? I ain’t gonna hold you up, son, that sh*t was golf course music. [laughs]”
This week, Atlanta rapper Future appeared to clap back at JAY on social media.
Louisiana rapper Boosie Badazz also publicly addressed JAY clowning rappers for posting stacks of money to their Instagram pages.
“That’s a thing we do. N*gga, JAY-Z’s not going to stop our culture in Louisiana. I don’t know about New York. I don’t know about other cities and things like that but Louisiana? But Louisiana? You know, his words are not born in Louisiana. What he says does not stop a movement, does not do anything in Louisiana. Not sh*tting on JAY, not sh*tting on the album, not doing none of that. Not sh*tting on JAY. JAY is a great businessman but it’s for y’all to say I shouldn’t put stacks to my ear because JAY-Z said it? He’s not my father. You know, he’s not my mentor. He didn’t raise me. I’m a grown a** man just like JAY-Z. People are still going to put stacks to their ear, I know in Louisiana they is.”
Toward the end of “The Story of O.J.,” JAY-Z takes direct aim at rappers flexing on Instagram with their talking money.
