UPDATE 11/30/18 @ 10:14 AM: Jay-Z just took to Twitter to clarify the meaning of his lyrics, writing, "The line clearly meant don't pit me against my brothers no matter what our differences are (red hat) now go pick up Meek album. Drake and Meek on there together."
The line clearly meant don't pit me against my brothers no matter what our differences are (red hat) now go pick up Meek album . Drake and Meek on there together .
The lyrics, "No red hat, don't Michael and Prince me and Ye," made many think it was a dig at Kanye; however, TMZ says it's actually a show of solidarity with the Yeezus rapper. Jay was apparently referencing the 1980s and 1990s rivalry between Michael Jackson and Prince.
TMZ's breakdown: "Just because Ye wears the red cap and I [Jay-Z] don't, doesn't mean you should pit us against each other."
Elsewhere, Nicki Minaj released her insanely sexual music video for "Good Form," featuring Lil Wayne. Minaj also hired, according to TMZ, the two "strip club bartenders -- Baddie Gi and Jade -- who are preparing to sue Cardi [B]." So that's some super juicy tea for you.
Meanwhile, Benny Blanco teamed up with Swae Lee on "Better to Lie;" Kelly Rowland dropped a spicy, self-titled track; Miley Cyrus hit us with the song and video for "Nothing Breaks Like a Heart," featuring Mark Ronson; and Alessia Cara debuted her sophomore album, "The Pains of Growing."
