Jay-Z makes reference to Kanye West’s controversial wearing of the red Make American Great Again hat on a new song — but says it shouldn’t be taken as a dig at his longtime collaborator.

“No red hat, don’t Michael and Prince me and Ye/ They separate you when you got Michael and Prince’s DNA,” Jay-Z raps in a featured verse on Meek Mill’s song “What’s Free.”




Jay-Z continues by trashing President Trump, but stops short of comparing Melania Trump to his wife Beyonce.

“I ain’t one of those house n—-s you bought/ My house like a resort, my house bigger than yours/My spou- (C’mon, man).”

West wore the MAGA hat, which features President Trump’s campaign slogan, multiple times this year as he voiced his support for the President.

Although Jay-Z supported Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election and has been critical of Trump, he says his new lyric about the hat is meant as a show of unity with West.

“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,” Jay-Z tweeted Friday. “Drake and Meek on there together .”

The post marked Jay-Z’s first tweet in more than a year.

Mill, meanwhile, shared a screen grab of Jay-Z’s tweet. “What’s Free” appears on Mill’s new album, which came out Friday.

West rose to fame in the music industry as a producer for Jay-Z’s record label. The two artists have often appeared on songs together and even created an album together, “Watch The Throne,” in 2011. They went on tour together in support of that album the same year.
