Jay Z Raps About Barneys Partnership & Devilish Racial Profiling Issue In New Rick Ross Song!

| Filed under: Music MinuteFashion SmashionJay ZBarneysCharity

We love it when artists address topical issues in their music!!

Shortly after wifey Beyoncé bombarded the music world with her Queen-hood, Jay Z decided to make his own headlines by rapping about the Barneys controversy that’s been plaguing his holiday collaboration!

Mr. Carter is featured in a new little ditty called The Devil Is A Lie from Rick Ross’ upcoming album, Mastermind.

And in it, he addresses the racial profiling dilemma that he’s had to face head on, rapping:

"See what I did to the stop and frisk?/Brooklyn on the Barneys like we own the bitch/Give the money to the hood, now we all win/Got that Barneys floor looking like a VIM."

Need some footnotes??

Hova’s basically citing the fact that he’s now playing a role in multiple retailers’ “stop and frisk” policies, while also doing charity work by donating all his Barneys profits to the Shawn Carter Foundation.

All in a day’s work for Jay!

Ch-ch-check out the track (above)!
