Drake might want to watch his back. He might be one of the newer players in the game, but it doesn’t mean his predecessors are ready to let him off easy. Rapper and entrepreneur Jay Z had some strong words for the former "Degrassi" star and praises the Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o in his song “We Made It” with Jay Electronica.
MTV broke down the new song, with Jigga referring to Drake as “Mr. Drizzy,” as he calls himself on his Twitter account: "Sorry Mr. Drizzy for so much art talk/ Silly me rappin' 'bout sh-- that I bought," he. raps.
On Drake’s form of "We Made It," he talked about going to Universal Records just to make sure they weren't missing any payments. On the other side, Jay, Z addressed the fact that he doesn’t have those issues. "I own my masters, you know I ain't missing no royalty statements," he raps, using the same style that Drake did, according to MTV News.
Jay Z also gave praise to Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o and correctly pronounced her name. The news site pointed out that he effectively avoided a butcher scenario like John Travolta, where he royally flubbed “Frozen” singer Idina Menzel’s name. But back to Jay Z and Drake.
Twitter had a strong reaction to Jay Z calling out Drake on his newest song. Check out some comments below:
