The 41-year-old rap star has taken aim at his fellow New Yorker in an now-deleted Instagram video, saying Jay’s much-hyped new record is “too smart” for his taste. 50 – whose real name is Curtis Jackson – explained: “I thought the s**t was aight, you know what I’m sayin’? I liked the s**t. But I’m going to 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 f***ing sweater around my waist. It was like Ivy League s**t.”
In fact, 50 claimed Jay’s new record is the sort of thing he’d expect to hear at a golf club, saying he’d prefer to listen to an album that’s just “fun”. The outspoken musician explained: “I ain’t gon’ hold you up. Some of that s**t was like golf course music.I’m going to tell you the truth: N****s hot out here. They don’t wanna hear that s**t. They just wanna have a good time. F**k that. You can’t be the best rapper at 47, because the new n****s is here. (sic)”
