Jay-Z Clarifies Kanye West Diss On Meek Mill’s ‘What’s Free’ In Rare Twitter Post
Jay-Z visited his verified Twitter account on Friday, November 30 – after close to 18 months since he last used the social media platform – to clarify his verse on Meek Mill’s latest single ‘What’s Free.’
On the track, Jay-Z raps:
“No red hat, don’t Michael and Prince me and Ye/ They separate you when you got Michael and Prince’s DNA/ I ain’t one of these house n—– you bought/ My house like a resort, my house bigger than yours/ My spou – c’mon, man.”
A lot of social media users were of the opinion that the rapper was aiming a dig at fellow rap icon Kanye West, following the rapper’s flurry of support for President Trump.
Several of West’s social media posts also featured the president’s “Make America Great Again” hat, which Jay-Z appears to be referencing at the beginning of the verse.
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 .

However, Hov denied claims alleging that he was criticizing West by posting his own explanation of the verse on Twitter.
“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,” he wrote.
The rare Tweet also marks the first time the rapper has posted on the social media account since June 2017, prompting a host of fan reactions.
