Radio.com has the details: "Kill Jay Z" is about, "the killing of the ego, so we can have this conversation in a place of vulnerability and honesty." But also, it's kind of about Kanye West, reports Fader.
In the song Jay raps, "You dropped outta school, you lost your principles, I know people backstab you, I feel bad too, But this f— everybody attitude ain't natural."
Later on he continues: 'But you ain't the same, this ain't Kumba Ye/ But you got hurt because you think Kumba Ye/ You gave him 20 million without thinkin'/ He gave you 20 minutes on stage, f— was he thinkin'?/ 'F— wrong with everybody?' is what you sayin'/ But if everybody's crazy, you're the one that's insane."

It was leaked that Swift lent her songwriting gifts to the Harris-Rihanna hit and she subsequently confirmed it, as a new romance with actor Tom Hiddleston heated up. In a new interview with British GQ, Harris now admits he was impulsive and unprofessional. "It was completely the wrong instinct," Harris admitted. "I was protecting what I see as my one talent in the world being belittled. It felt like things were piling on top of me and that was when I snapped."
"Hurtful to me at this point that her and her team would go so far out of their way to try and make ME look bad at this stage though," he tweeted. "I figure if you're happy in your new relationship you should focus on that instead of trying to tear your ex bf down for something to do," he wrote in a follow-up tweet that was liked almost 3,000 times within half an hour. "I know you're off tour and you need someone new to try and bury like Katy [Perry] ETC but I'm not that guy, sorry. I won't allow it." Read morehere.
"I couldn't think of a more fitting way to honor the 50th anniversary of the release of my 1967 Grammy winning song 'Soul Man' than to be asked to perform it with the Blues Brothers on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol," said Sam Moore.
A Capitol Fourth airs on PBS Tuesday, July 4, 2017 from 8:00 to 9:30 p.m. ET before a concert audience of hundreds of thousands, millions more at home, as well as to our troops serving around the world on the American Forces Network. Read morehere.
In addition, they issued a statement in which they apologized for "any insensitivity" and admitted they "missed the mark completely" with the re-purposed "vintage" T-shirts which contained designs that were "randomly selected and not well thought out."

The verse lyrics describe my day to day at the moment -- "I bask in the ice // I bathe in the fire" -- traveling coast to coast & prospering in New York's ever changing climate. The second verse -- "having fun, running around
// singing songs through the town // city lights brighter than ever // illuminating the kind of stuff I treasure" dives deeper into life from my standpoint -- running around from meetings to studio sessions to video shoots as my childhood dreams transform into a current reality. All the while, I try my best to treasure every bit no matter the pace.
To see fans, new & old, respond so positively to my debut music video which was independently organized & directed is hard to grasp. My life is about to change more than I could have ever dreamed. I'm so grateful for the love as I've invested and sacrificed so much to provoke such an outcome. This release has left me hungrier than ever for more success. I'm psyched to serve up all the new music & visuals this year with much more to come!
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen and watch for yourselfright here!

When Drake hosted last Monday night's NBA Awards, the rapper paid tribute to the race-relations thriller with a hilarious sketch. Drake plays Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry as the skit's protagonist.
