(NOTE LANGUAGE) Jay-Z is setting the record straight about his relationship with Meek Mill, who departed from his Roc Nation label earlier this year.
He addressed suspicions about their alleged tension in the title track of DJ Khaled‘s new album, God Did.
“Me and Meek could never beef,” he rapped. He then went on to mention the role he played in getting Meek released from prison. “I freed that n**** from a whole bid, Hov did,” he continues. “Next time we have a discussion who the G.O.A.T., you donkeys know this.”
Jay supported Meek financially when he was serving a two- to four-year prison sentence on drug and possession charges from when he was a teen. Jay also wrote an op-ed in the New York Times to call out the “unjust and heavy handed” term.
Meek has publicly praised Hov for his support and help in paying millions of dollars’ worth of legal fees. When he announced he was ending his 10-year deal with Roc Nation, he made it clear that they had no issues.
“I’m personally handling my own business so I can take risk and grow. we came to that agreement together..,” he wrote. “I have a label deal with roc for my artist and I got reform super tied with them and many other investments wit jigga.”
“roc nation is my family…,” he continued. “we made about a 100m together des mike and Hov saved my life b4 And put a lot of energy into it I’m not behind on my favors in life wit my people I’m good.”
Meek also responded to a tweet about Hov’s new bars, agreeing that they “could never beef.”
Jay appeared on “God Did” alongside Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, John Legend and Fridayy.
