“Sorry Mrs. Drizzy for so much art talk. Silly me, rappin’ bout shit that I really bought / While these rappers rap about guns that they ain’t shot / And a bunch of other silly sh*t they ain’t got”.
Jay Z is making us know his thoughts about Canadian rapper Drake on a new single with Jay Electronica titled “We Made It”. The song is a freestyle and we love it, and we couldn’t help but hear the shade Jay Z threw at Drake.
If you don’t know the genesis of this diss, here is the scoop. In a recent Rolling Stone interview, Drake aired his views about Jay Z always rapping about art instead of dropping “Real Bars”. He said “It’s like Hov can’t drop bars these days without at least four art references. I would love to collect at some point, but I think the whole rap/art world thing is getting kind of corny.
Well Jay Z isn’t a rap king for nothing and after almost 2 decades of making music, Mr. Carter did not let the comment go. His new music with another ace rapper Jay Electronica released yesterday Sunday 23 March 2014 proves this. A few lines after Jay starts rapping we hear a direct reference to Drake’s comment “Sorry Mrs. Drizzy for so much art talk. Silly me, rappin’ bout shit that I really bought / While these rappers rap about guns that they ain’t shot / And a bunch of other silly sh*t they ain’t got”.
What are your thoughts on this? Should he have just let the comment go? Although hip-hop is about this back-and-front banter so we personally don’t mind a little “beef” in the industry. Oh! Did you hear Jay mention Lupita Nyong’o? Our Kenyan born Oscar winner is making waves!!

Jay Z signed Jay Electronica to his Roc Nation label in 2010. The “We Made It” single is a remix of Drake and Soulja Boy’s “We Made It”.
