Nas continued his 20 year celebration at the Coachella Music Festival. He performed Illmatic in its entirety and brought out Shawn Carter (10 minute mark) and Sean Combs (34:52 mark).
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.”
