Did Hov Take Shots at Kanye West on “Kill Jay Z”?
The lyrics in question appear in the lone, long verse that opens the album:
“You walkin’ around like you invincible, you dropped outta school, you lost your principles/I know people backstab you, I felt bad too/But this ‘fuck 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 blinkin”/He gave you 20 minutes on stage, fuck was he thinkin’?/’Fuck wrong with everybody?’ is what you sayin’/But if everybody’s crazy, you’re the one that’s insane.”
If you recall, Kanye went off on Hov at a concert back in November 2016. Soon after, he cancelled his Saint Pablo tour and wound up in the hospital. He’s been recovering since, recording new music in Wyoming and recently reuniting with “Through the Wire” directors Coodie and Chike. But the status of Jay and ‘Ye’s relationship since Kanye went off isn’t quite known. Now we may be starting to get a better picture.
