Hov also references XXXTentacion’s murder in his third Drizzy feature.
Making his third appearance on a Drake album, JAY-Z provides a vintage extended verse on one the most highly anticipated tracks from Drizzy's Scorpion, “Talk Up.”
The Roc Nation CEO closes out his “Talk Up” cameo by letting everyone know he doesn't have any plans to ever meet with President Donald Trump. He then voices his disgust for the Florida streets following the senseless murder XXXTentacion (June 20), but questions the fact that Trayvon Martin's killer, George Zimmerman, is free to walk around without protection.
“I got your president tweeting/ I won't even met with him/ Y'all killed X and let Zimmerman live/ Streets is done,” Jay brashly raps over the hard-hitting production from Three 6 Mafia's DJ Paul.
JAY-Z previously referenced his disdain for George Zimmerman on DJ Khaled's “Top Off.” More recently, he called out Trump for mentioning his name on The Carters “SALUD.”
Drake and Hova lay rumors a longstanding rift to rest even though Jay paid homage to Drizzy during a 2017 show in Toronto and shouted him out on Twitter. The OVO frontman rapped about turning in JAY-Z on 2016's “Summer Sixteen.” “I used to wanna be on Roc-A-Fella then I turned into Jay,” Drake rhymed.
