Jay-Z Releases Lyrics To

Jay-Z's latest lyrical reveal is his shortest yet.

The Jay-Z lyrics train keeps rolling, as portions of more songs from his upcoming album Magna Carta Holy Grail are revealed.

It's unclear whether "Versus," the latest-revealed cut is a skit, or the page just simply doesn't have all the lyrics (redacted and otherwise) on it.

One thing's for certain, however: "Versus" is the most combative cut on MCHG yet, with bars like "The truth in my verses /  Versus / Your metaphors / About what your net worth is."

On its face, the track is reminiscent of "What We Talkin' About," the opening cut on 2009's Blueprint 3, where Jay name-checked and dismissed artists such as Game, Jim Jones, and others.

So far, Jay has released lyrics to "BBC," featuring Nas, Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, Swizz Beatz, and Timbaland, "Part II (On the Run)," featuring Beyonce, and a slew of others.

Magna Carta Holy Grail is due in stores July 4, except for Samsung Galaxy smartphone users, one million of whom will receive the album for free via app.

The redacted lyrics to "Versus" can be found below:

    Jay-Z write ABC raps. All these songs have simplistic lyrics. But Jay has always been a simple dude, it's his style that brainwashes people into thinking he's good.

    The more I see these lyrics from the new Jay album the more it seems like he's trolling the music industry, but primarily his fans. With no context it shows up more clearly, without a good beat and a nice delivery, you can see it for the empty, vain and simplistic trash it really is.
  • imho
    i feel like he slick dissin someone idk who though.

    It's like he's not even trying to sneak diss Kanye anymore
  • Aaron
    This sounds horrible just reading it. Funny how they tried to censor it but left out a 'shit' in the third line

      Actually no. You are acting as if I was saying he can't rap. Just because someone states an opinion doesn't mean they are lil wayne/chief keef fans. Smh dickriders always quick to strike back.
