JAY-Z talked about a myriad of topics with his interview on the Rap Radar podcast. At one point, he was asked about what he meant with his money phone line on the 4:44 track, “Story of O.J.”
“I didn’t even tell people to stop using the money phone,” he said. “I didn’t say that. I had to listen again like ‘How is this being misinterpreted?’ because I just said it ain’t money to us. It ain’t. That’s just an honest statement.”
It looks like Future is still feeling some type of way about the line. The Atlanta rhymer went on his Twitter page to throw another subliminal shot at JAY for the line. “Same money u get we gettin too…,” he tweeted. “As long as they print it we gone get it. FREEBANDZ.”
Future’s pro-money phone stance is the same as Boosie Badazz who says that money phones is a trend (at least in Louisiana) that’s not going to stop.
Later, when JAY-Z was asked about his perceived diss to Future on “Kill JAY-Z” (“I don’t even know what you woulda done / In the future other niggas playin’ football with your son / You woulda lost it”), he said that he wasn’t taking a shot at him.
“I really don’t mean any malice…I’m not discrediting all step-pops in the world. It was a line to say, that could happen to me in my future,” he said. “It just so happened that his name was Future, and then I just made a scheme out of it. I wasn’t trying to put Future down. We just made a song together, I don’t have any problems with him.”
