(AllHipHop News) While rappers like Future and Young Buck appeared to be critical of JAY-Z’s 4:44, one fellow southerner has nothing but praise for the project.
Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star Lil Scrappy was asked about Hov’s latest musical effort.
“I love Jay-Z’s 4:44 album,” Scrappy told DJ Smallz. “It’s breaking down all the lame sh-t everybody be doing.”
One of the most talked about lines from 4:44 is on the track titled “The Story of O.J.”
Jay-Z rapped on the record, “Y’all on the Gram holding money to your ear. There’s a disconnect, we don’t call that money over here.”
Those particular lyrics have caused debate online about rap stars flaunting their wealth on social media.
Scrappy shared his reaction to Jay’s bars about the “money phone” trend.
“I even had a stack to my ear when I was listing to it,” recalled Scrap. “I was like [mimics putting money in his pocket]… I’m gonna put my money back in my bank account then… I was feeling that.”
The one time Lil Jon protegé also defended Jay-Z against backlash from other people that took issue with his “The Story of O.J.” bars.
“He’s just in a different league,” stated Scrappy about the Hip Hop legend. “He’s talking to the dudes that supposed to be grown, the grown dudes that wanna act like the kids. It’s backward.”
Scrappy also explained how it was actually a line from “Kill Jay-Z” that hit him the hardest.
The song features Hov spitting, “I don’t even know what you woulda done. In the Future, other n-ggas playing football with your son.”
“That was the one,” declared Scrappy.
