Jay-Z, 44, is letting Drake have it in a new track entitled “We Made It.” In the song Hove goes on to diss Drake by not even referring to him as a man. Drake managed to get under Jay’s skin by dissing Hove’s use of art references in his songs. We bet the “Too Much” rapper wished he’d kept those comments to himself.
Jay opened up about Drake’s recent Rolling Stone comments concerning the use of art references in a verse on Jay Electronica’s “We Made It” track.
“Sorry Mrs. Drizzy for so much art talk,” Jay Z raps on the track. “Silly me, rap pin’ ’bout s**t that I really bought — while these rappers rap about guns that they ain’t shot — and a bunch of other silly s**t that they ain’t got.”
Jay Z’s “Drizzy” reference stems from Drake’s trade mark alias, a name dropped several times during his interview. In that interview, Drake openly criticizes Jay Z’s references to art in his lyrics.
“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.”

Tupac Shakur died on September 13, 1996. Christopher Wallace died on March 9, 1997. Almost two decades later the murders of both iconic Hip Hop stars still remain unsolved.
While police and investigative journalists have yet to concretely expose the people responsible for the deaths of 2Pac and Biggie, a new documentary has taken on the task of shedding a light on the complicated stories behind their killings.
Lloyd Lake, a former associate of Death Row’s Marion “Suge” Knight, has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the tell-all documentary about the Pac and Big murders. The goal of the film is “exposing the government turning a blind-eye to Suge Knight’s involvement due to his role as a government informant.”
Takashi Bufford (Set It Off, Booty Call) served as producer and director for the documentary. The movie will feature interviews with Reggie White, who is described as Tupac’s bodyguard and Suge Knight’s right-hand man, and lawyers familiar with the justice system’s lack of interest in prosecuting anyone involved in the cases. It will also explore the idea of the government using informants to gather information on the Hip Hop community.
“The fact that 17 years has gone by without anyone being prosecuted and there are multiple related shootings and deaths connected with Tupac’s murder for which no one has been charged, this forces us to look at the glaring fact that the legal system failed,” states Lake. “It’s my goal with this documentary to put not only those involved on trial but to reveal the shameful cover up and reveal the truth and facts in the case.”
The documentary hopes to answer the following questions:
- What does the Government know about Tupac and Biggie murders?
- Why are there no prosecutions of the individuals involved in the Tupac and Biggie murders?
- Are there informants involved within the Government’s investigation of the “Hip Hop” music industry?
- Is the Government disclosing the informants involvement in the prosecution of “Hip Hop” artist?
- Why are individuals with significant criminal convictions (strikes) still committing crimes and never prosecuted?
Lake is looking to raise $150,000 over the next 30 days. If the filmmakers are able to reach their goal in the allotted time, the documentary will be released to the public. Anyone who donates more than $25 will receive an advanced copy of the DVD. Other prizes are available as well including a signed copy of the film, a poster of Tupac and Biggie, and VIP invitations to the movie’s premiere.
