50 Cent Calls Jay-Z’s New Album ‘Golf Music’

Noted music reviewer 50 Cent recently gave his thoughts on Jay-Z’s new 4:44 album. And, unsurprisingly, he wasn’t all that impressed. In a recently deleted Instagram video, here’s what Fif had to say.

“I thought the s**t was aight, you know what I’m sayin’? I liked the s**t. But Imma keep it 100: The s**t was a little, the s**t was too smart. I felt like I was supposed to be wearing glasses and s**t, and tie a fucking sweater around my waist. It was like Ivy League s**t.”

“Now I’mma tell you the truth, n****s is hot out here, so they don’t wanna hear that s**t, they just wanna have a good time. And f**k that—you can’t be the best rapper at 47 because the new n****s is here. They coming with new s**t going on. That’s why I was laughing with the Joe Budden …the Migos thing, ’cause they up. They up next, you gotta let the young n****s come in. N****s fucking with Future and all this…leave them n****s alone man, b, what the f**k is the matter with you man. I ain’t gon’ hold you up son, that s**t was like golf course music.”

Because this is the internet, nothing ever dies. Here’s the original video:

This is an odd review because…he’s right, but he’s also wrong. Jay-Z’s new album is really smart because it’s a personal album made by a 47-year-old. This isn’t “street hustler Jay-Z.” This is “father of three Jay-Z.” Him rapping about slinging drugs and street deals wouldn’t make a whole lot of sense, now would it? And Beyonce wishes Jay-Z made this album for the golf course.

That’s why 50 Cent hasn’t had a good album in years. No one wants to hear a 42-year-old rap about drugs and money and sleeping with tons of women. At some point, you and your music have to grow up.

He’s also right in saying that the new rappers just want to have a good time and they don’t want to hear personal stories like Jay-Z delivered. That’s why people dislike rap, at least the rap they hear on the radio, so much nowadays.

Jay-Z has already responded to 50 Cent.

“I’m about a dollar, what the f**k is 50 Cents?”

Yes, Jay-Z responded to a 2017 diss in 1999. That’s how far ahead of the game he is.
