Jay-Z Jabs O’Reilly on New Track

A new Jay-Z single leaked this week — remember when Jay-Z retired? — and in it, he takes a swipe at Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly. O’Reilly has had a history of calling out rappers for various transgressions (though mostly for that foul language). The list includes Nas, Cam’ron, Ludacris, Young Jeezy, and, yes, Jay-Z.

Well on the new track, music superstar Jay-Z says: “This ain’t black vs. white, my n***a, we off that. Please tell Bill O’Reilly to fall back.” Mediaite’s Steve Krakauer writes:

The irony of the shout-out to O’Reilly is the song “Off That” deals with issues O’Reilly would likely support. Throughout the chorus, Drake raps about items they are “off” of, including many things O’Reilly would consider to be staples of the “gangsta rap” he often attacks. They are off “over-sized clothes and chains,” “rims,” “making it rain” and more.

You can listen to the single, here (for now).
