Jay-Z Really Refer To Himself As “Muhammad Hovi” On Magna Carter Holy Grail?

By  | 

Jay-Z will infuriate the Muslim community when his new album drops next week … at least that’s what a gossip website is claiming. The website says that the rapper calls himself “Muhammad Hovi” on the upcoming Magna Carta Holy Grail album, which is something the Muslim community will definitely find offensive.

This is an excerpt taken from the website’s article:

“MediaTakeOut.com spoke with someone who HEARD Jay’s entire album … and Jay’s about to cause a STIR!! In his new song ‘Oceans’, featuring Frank Ocean, Jay calls himself by a new name … “MUHAMMAD HOVI.” Hovi is short for ‘Jehovah’ or God. And Muhammad is the Islamic prophet.

[Jay] better watch himself though … those Muslims don’t play when you mess around with Muhammad.”

HipHollywood spent a few minutes looking over the lyrics to the song, and we can say with certainty that there is no place in them where the rapper refers to himself as “Muhammad Hovi.” But you don’t have to believe us, just read the lyrics for yourself below, something the other website neglected to do before posting their story.

It should be noted that Hov has called himself “Muhammad Hovi” in the past. On “American Gangster” the rapper used the nickname as play off of legendary boxer Muhammad Ali’s name. “Can’t lie, they had Muhammad Hovi on the ropes” he raps.

    Why would muslims be offended? He’s referencing Muhammad Ali, not the prophet Muhammad – it’s called an allegory. Smh

    You guys obviously didn’t understand the meaning. people always wanna start controversial rumours with this man.. He says “Can’t lie they had Muhammad Hovi on the ropes” hinting that he’s like Muhammad Ali who used the Rope-a-Dope maneuver on George Foreman in the now famous, Rumble in the Jungle fight. Meaning that while you may have him on the ropes (fending off punches), he is essentially smarter than you and still winning the fight… You need to delete this post because your misleading the public
