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:

Can it be true??
It's no secret that Jay Z loves his designer threads, but this holiday season, he may be taking his passion for fashion to a whole other level!
According to reports, Jay's had "secret talks" with Barneys about a collaboration, specifically for the store's annual holiday campaign.
If this is true, Ho-Ho-Hov would be following in the
footsteps mouse tracks of Disney, who partnered with the department store last year for an Electric Holiday-themed window display, limited-edition designer collection and short film.
We can’t help but think that Jay Z releasing a surprise song about Barneys would be the best holiday gift EVA!
Something along the lines of, "I don’t pop molly, I shop Barneys" would be perf!
