jay-z-barneys-holiday-collaboration

We were waiting on Hov to make a statement to the press about his ill-timed deal with Barney New York for their holiday collection, as the clothing outlet has fought allegations of racist practices in its stores. Didn’t have to wait very long as Mr. Carter released a statement via his Life and Times outlet. But that wasn’t all. He contacted us with an exclusive freestyle broaching the topics at hand. Full lyrics after the jump.

 made a mill off barney’s
 in like half a week
 
 paparazzi cameras
 can’t capture me
 and i do this activist sh*t
 casual-LEE
 
 so all this chatter
 i catch at my peak
 won’t you please leave a message
 after the beep
 
 ~chea~
 
 i roll dat baby carriage with B
 she my favorite marriage
 only AFTER these STREETS

 alex wangs on her feet
 keep watching my fangs, silly hater

 mang
 
 where’s Bleek when i need ‘im?
 cast me in a grave
 for seekin’ my freedom
 ask Bleek i don’t feed him
 he the last link to my street
 like Angie
 Martinez

 these racists don’t want me
 in they board room
 Powerpoints n’ charts
 turn it in to a Bored Room
 ~chea~

 don’t they know i booked a G4
 flight i gotta board soon?
 
 the fact i’m here
 is its own victory
 so 4 u hate on Hov

 y’all missing the point
 like my broken pen
 Hov

 so i’m focused man

 lil gnats buzz in my ears
 like Killa Cam

    so miss me with that fake hate? Oh, HOV, this is all real!

  • Weston

    He’s really justifying? Go make cake.

  • peanutbutter

    If he’s not making money from all these, why lend his name? He could easily give money to charity!
