Not everyone loved 4:44.
In an IG video (which has since been deleted), the Candy Shop rapper explained:
“I thought the shit was aight, you know what I’m sayin’? I liked the shit. But I’ma keep it 100: The shit was a little, the shit was too smart. I felt like I was supposed to be wearing glasses and shit, and tie a fucking sweater around my waist. It was like Ivy League shit.”
And too smart is a bad thing because?? Sadly, Fiddy didn’t stop there as he continued:
“I ain’t gon’ hold you up. Some of that shit was like golf course music.”
OUCH. And, we want to know where the Power actor is playing golf, because 4:44 definitely doesn’t sound like country club music to us. LOLz!
Curtis was feeling pretty bold as he went on to question Beyonce‘s man’s status as one of the greatest rappers. He quipped:
“I’mma tell you the truth: n****s hot out here. They don’t wanna hear that shit. They just wanna have a good time. Fuck that. You can’t be the best rapper at 47, because the new n****s is here.”
#PressPlay #50cent weighs in on #JayZ’s album!A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom) on Jul 5, 2017 at 10:04am PDT
Hmmm, we’re in the era of Drake, we think the hitmaker may be underestimating the empathy Jay’s fanbase has. We mean, the album has already gained platinum status.
Unsurprisingly, fans have laid into 50 on Twitter for his remarks on 4:44. Be sure to ch-ch-check out the best reactions (below).
50 cent just called Jay-Z’s new album golf music. I’m sorry 50… when was your last album release? Oh and your last #1 hit? #trashtalk pic.twitter.com/msw1ULQZ8M
