Jay Z is now speaking out against shop-and-frisk but not in a protest kind of way. The rapper turned Barneys curator has teamed up with Rick Ross on the new song “Devil is a Lie”. On the track Jay Z speaks about doing business with the upscale store.
“See what I did to the stop and frisk/ Brooklyn on at Barneys like we own the b—-/ Give the money to the hood now we all win/Got that Barneys floor lookin’ like a VIM,” he raps on Ross’ upcoming album “Mastermind.” VIM refers a Brooklyn clothing and sneakers designer.
Well technically it’s not looking like a VIM, because I doubt the average black person wants to spend $700+ on a pair of leather boxing shorts.
Jay Z goes on to rap “Gettin’ white money but I’m still black.”
Get money. I guess.
