Jay-Z comes for the Champagne Papi in new record with Jay Electronica.
It was bound to happen. At least those were my thoughts when I read Drake’s interview in Rolling Stone . Though Drake’s hissy fit over being moved off the cover for the issue, due to the shocking death of Phillip Seymour Hoffman might I add, I still managed to read it.
Immediately after reading the spread I knew Jay would have something to say when Drake essentially called the rap phenomenon “corny”.
“It’s like Hov can’t drop bars these days without at least four art references,” Drake says in the article. “I would love to collect [art] at some point, but I think the whole Rap/art world thing is getting kind of corny.”
Learning from his unfortunate legal troubles over biting, among other things, from his days of being a music slave to Def Jam, Hov took to his music to address Drake’s concerns.
“Sorry Mrs. Drizzy for so much art talk,” Jay Z raps on the track. “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 shit that they ain’t got.”
Ironically I’ve got nothing to add on the record itself. I was kinda disappointed in Jay-E’s execution. Not memorable at all.
