Despite 4:44 achieving platinum statusand it being lauded as a great comeback album, JAY-Z has received his fair share of detractors. Recently, 50 Cent reviewed 4:44 on Instagram and dubbed Hov’s latest offering “golf course music.”

“I listened to Jay sh–, that 4:44,” 50 began, “I thought the sh– was aight. I liked the sh–, but I’m gonna keep it 100: the sh– was too smart. I felt like I was supposed to be wearing glasses and tie a f—ing sweater around my waist. It was like Ivy League sh–.”

Then, 50 acknowledged that though JAY-Z released a solid album, that he no longer should proclaim himself as the best, because of his age. “I’mma tell you the truth: N—as is hot out here. They don’t wanna hear that sh–. They just wanna have a good time. F— that. You can’t be the best rapper at 47, because the new n—as is here,” said 50.


He added: “I ain’t gon’ hold you up. That sh– was like golf course music.”

Since 4:44 was released last week, Kanye West reportedly severed ties with JAY-Z’s streaming service Tidal. In addition, Future and Boosie BadAzz took offense to some of Hov’s lyrics and responded with jabs of their own on social media.
