50 Cent calls Jay-Z’s new album “golf course music”

 Jay-Z’s long awaited album 4:44 came out June 30th and so far it’s gotten some pretty mixed reviews. Although it went platinum in less than a week, one critic came in the form of another influential rapper, 50 Cent.

50 Cent posted his opinion on the album via Instagram, but soon deleted the video. But of course, once something is out there, someone is bound to see it and save it. Lucky celebrities. This is what he said about Jay-Z’s new album:

“I thought the s— was aight, you know what I’m sayin’? I liked the s—. But I’ma keep it 100: The s— was a little, the s— was too smart. I felt like I was supposed to be wearing glasses and s—, and tie a f—ing sweater around my waist. It was like Ivy League s—.”

“I ain’t gon’ hold you up,” 50 Cent added. “Some of that s— was like golf course music.”

“I’mma tell you the truth: N—as hot out here,” he went on. “They don’t wanna hear that sh—. They just wanna have a good time. F— that. You can’t be the best rapper at 47, because the new n—as is here,” 50 Cent said.

Basically, 50 is calling Jay-Z old and his music irrelevant. Even though the music might be good, the demographic he is trying to reach isn’t there.

This is exactly the same issue that golf has had for years, so it’s interesting that 50 uses that as an insult. Although golf has had its moments in the past few years with the emergence of Top Golf and games like Chippo, golf is still living in a time that does not appeal to greater audiences.

While Jay-Z and Beyonce may be a power couple, their self love is overshadowing their musical creations. Lemonade and 4:44 will never be compared to likes of B’Day and American Gangster. 50 Cent is keeping it real, and inadvertently brought up a golf stereotype that it desperately needs to break out of.
