50 Cent reviews Jay Z’s 4:44.
While many are raving over the Roc Nation mogul’s new album, rapper 50 Cent, real name Curtis James Jackson III, simply isn’t feeling it. In a new rant posted on Instagram, the “Power” star described the release as “golf course music” and “Ivy League s—,” among other colorful terms: “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,” Jackson went on. “Some of that s— was like golf course music.”.
“I’mma tell you the truth: N—as hot out here,” he added.
“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,” concluded the 41-year-old.
Of course, 50 Cent isn’t the only one who feels some kind of way about 4:44. As previously reported, shortly after the album dropped, Kanye West split from Jay Z’s Tidal and filed a suit to the tune of $3M. Sources tell TMZ that West has been unhappy with the streaming service for a long time and is owed past dues for marketing efforts, including video production, as well as a bonus for subscriber thresholds met as was agreed upon ahead of the release of West’s February 2016 album The Life of Pablo.

Meanwhile, less than a week after Hov released his 13th studio album, it has reached platinum status. “Props to Jay, he’s done it again!” RIAA chairman and CEO Cary Sherman said in a statement. “Another platinum album adds to an already iconic career.”
