Jay Z addressed addressed Drake on a new track after the rapper called him "corny" for using art references in his music
Jay Z has hit out at Drake in a new track.
The Roc Nation boss addressed the 'Hypher' hitmaker during his verse on Jay Electronica's new song, 'We Made It', after the rapper called him "corny" for using art references in his music.
Jay Z raps: "Sorry Mrs. Drizzy for so much art talk/ Silly me, rappin' '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."
The reference comes after Drake's controversial interview with Rolling Stone magazine in February, during which he criticised Jay Z and slated Kanye West's "questionable" rap lyrics on his 'Yeezus' album.
He said: "It's like Hov can't drop bars these days without at least four art references. I would love to collect [art] at some point, but I think the whole Rap/art world thing is getting kind of corny."
Speaking about 'Yeezus', Drake added: "There were some real questionable bars on there."
Itr isn't the first time Drake has criticised the two rappers, as he admitted he wasn't on good terms with the stars when he slated Jay Z and Kanye West's collaborative album 'Watch The Throne' on his 2011 track 'I'm One One'.
He admitted: "It was a lack of communication paired with natural competitiveness. But those two are Gods to me."
