Jay Z Addresses Lemonade Controversy


Back in April Beyoncé released her long awaited new album Lemonade where she famously addressed issues in her marriage to Jay Z [click here if you missed that].

In a remix of Fat Joe and Remy Ma's new track All the Way Up Jay Z addresses the controversy...

On the track Jay Z spits,
“You know you made it when the fact your marriage made it is worth millions/Lemonade is a popular drink and it still is/ Survival of the lit-est/ Niggas who really up versus nigga up in your business/ I'm in the room where real niggas not allowed/ I'm the only one in the room that they fear right now / I think they're clear right now / Let's celebrate, no red champagne, we don't play that /All we see is gold bottles and paper plane hats / Twenty one Grammy's that I use for D'usse cups/ I'm on the penthouse floor, call your way up / The OG's say, "HOV, how high is high enough?"/ I said "'till we eye and eye with the higher ups" /Until we let 'em know, we ain't those niggas/ Until our baby's showered in gold nigga / Blue looking like Pac in the tub/ David LaChapelle levels of not giving a f**k/ Prince left his masters where they safe and sound/ We never gonna let the elevator take him down..."

Whatever. They didn't have shit to rap and sing about so they used the elevator gate rumors to make money off it. Smart move cause ppl are that shit up. They're laughing all the way to the bank after they scammed ya'll into thinking that they're business deal turned marriage was in shambles.

8:01, it was rather obvious to those with a brain. I still haven't heard or watched it and have no desire to. I did catch some of those mildly retarded lyrics though.
This is why I loved artists like Prince so much, intelligent clever lyrics that made you think and feel.

I agree 100 percent 8:07am, the lyrics are definitely mildly retarded. That ninja need a GED or HS diploma keep rapping about the same stuff, money and bottles. His azz is so ignorant smh. When will he rap about something deep? Jayz is one ignorant hood MF and Bey is too for marrying his dumb azz.

How did he address it again? By saying lemonade is a popular drink and it still is? Is that some sort of confession about sleeping with white women?
Since he is in a room where real niggers are not allowed does that mean he is not a real nigger?
Is he mocking Prince's death since he died in the elevator? If Prince had not passed what current events would he had used? Cant they just talk to each other and not us?

Just be silent till you learn how to treat your lady like a Queen. Too much disrespectful drama ...Had my car egged and keyed by rats thinking I wanted their man—meanwhile he was prolly drinking a gallon of lemonade but it's the girl who ain't wearing weave who gets vandalized. This stupid behavior has got to stop. Drink Kool Aid instead!!

9:07 based on your use of the "er" we can't help you

So the alleged creator of this mess "made it"? Doesn't speak well of Beyonce - brainless fools!

The reason for the prince lyric is that Tidal is the only streaming service that Prince trusted with his catalog. In Let's Go Crazy, Prince sung about not letting the elevator take us down...

We have a whole generation addicted to being thugs, pill poppers & whores because of music yet we're mad about Beyonce using the rumors about her marriage to her advantage???? Find something real to be angry about, cause Lemonade ain't it.

This is all a contrived rap soap opera. NONE of it is real.

But these fools need to be careful what they sing and rap about, life has a funny way of contorting shit and having it come back around and bite you in the ass.

I like that he mentioned Prince, I actually LIKE the verse.

the rest of the crap yall on, I could give less than a damn. Its too hot to be holding a grudge or spitting damn venom on crap that I have no power to change.

Uneducated slow reading Beyonce and jayz are dumb rich. That's all. The end

They calculated this from the beginning, NO ONE is that stupid I hope (well they are) to think this wasn't part of the grand scheme to keep them relevant. Meanwhile Kris Jenner is get Black Chyna knocked up by "Rob" and getting rid of Tyga etc...and most people are WRAPPED up in this fakeness

Here's the funny thing, Jay and Bey has so much power and influence that when they go through normal things like having a baby, getting married or infidelity...people don't believe it I guess because they're every moved is so called planned for finanace...please NOBODY on God's green earth has that much energy...Let it go people. Who really scares me is that damn Madonna! who told her she can sing Prince's songs???? lmao

Don't try to deflect, Jay and Bey are as big a phony as Madonna. They're just more talented.

For what it's worth, it is all over the Internet how Jay Z has been a serial cheater for years.

Jay-Z looks like Mr. Potato Head

Jay's cheating is legendary dating all the way past Blu Cantrell! Can't date & live in the Hip Hop world and don't think your man isn't going to rollover on you! Too many sidechicks with too much time on their hands. A Rapper's ego is too big to say no!
