Jay Z Releases New Album & Visuals ‘4:44’; Responds To His Elevator Beating

  • Pin It

Jay Z has just released his 13th album ‘4:44’.

You can listen on Tidal, of course, here.

Here is a snippet of the visual to ‘The Story Of O.J’:

Speaking about the song to iHeartRadio, Jay-Z said, “‘The Story of OJ’ is really a song about we as a culture, having a plan, how we’re gonna push this forward. We all make money, and then we all lose money, as artists especially. But how, when you have some type of success, to transform that into something bigger.”

The rapper released his new album – his first since 2013’s Magna Carta Holy Grail – as a Tidal exclusive on the 30th June. It’s rumored the streaming exclusive on Tidal will last for a week.

Here are the lyrics to one his new tunes, ‘Kill Jay-Z’ where he responds to the infamous elevator beating where Solange went super saiyan on him.

Kill Jay-Z, they’ll never love you
They’ll never be enough
Let’s just keep it real, Jay-Z
Fuck Jay-Z, I mean, you shot your own brother
How can we know if we can trust Jay-Z?
And you know better, nigga, I know you do
But you gotta do better, boy, you owe it to Blue
You had no father, you had the armor
But you got a daughter, gotta get softer
Die Jay-Z, this ain’t back in the days
You don’t need an alibi, Jay-Z
Cry Jay-Z, we know the pain is real
But you can’t hear what you never reveal
What’s up, Jay-Z?
You know you owe the truth to all the youth
That fell in love with Jay-Z
You got people you love you sold drugs to
You got high on life, that shit drugged you
You walkin’ around like you invincible
You dropped outta school, you lost your principles
I know people backstab you, I feel bad too
But this fuck everybody attitude ain’t natural
But you ain’t the same, this ain’t KumbaYe
But you got hurt because you think KumbaYe
You gave him 20 million without thinkin’
He gave you 20 minutes on stage, fuck was he thinkin’?
“Fuck wrong with everybody?” is what you sayin’
But if everybody’s crazy, you’re the one that’s insane
Crazy how life works, you got a nod in your Tes
Imagine how a knife hurts
You stabbed Un over some records
Your excuse was “He was talkin’ too reckless!”
Let go your ego over your right shoulder
Your left is sayin’ “Finish your breakfast”
You egged Solange on
Knowin’ all along, all you had to say you was wrong
You almost went Eric Benét
Let the baddest girl in the world get away
I don’t even know what else to say
Nigga, never go Eric Benét
I don’t even know what you woulda done

In the future, other niggas playin’ football with your son
You had lost it, 13 bottles of Ace of Spaces
What it did to Boston
Nah, Jay-Z
Bye, Jay-Z

4:44 will be an upcoming Tidal-only film starring Mahershala Ali, Lupita Nyong’o and Danny Glover.
Jay-Z’s mom Gloria Carter, Frank Ocean, Damian Marley, wife Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, The-Dream and Blue Ivy Carter will all appear on the album.

Jay-Z will hit the road this summer in support of 4:44, including stops at festivals like his Made in America, Austin City Limits and Meadows.
