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

Published

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.

    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

Watch: Halle Berry Issues Whiskey Challenge During ‘Kingsman’ Interview

Published

Halle Berry proved she could hang with the fellas when she downed a glass of whiskey at Comic Con alongside her Kingsman: The Golden Circle co-stars. But don’t expect her to do that again.

“No more, no more,” she said after hilariously bolting from the room when we asked her if she’d drink another glass. “I will never [do it again], and no one lets me live down the fact that I did it either.”

According to Berry she was ill for three days after, but that didn’t stop her and Pedro Pascal from daring me to throw back a glass right before our interview.

Not one to turn down a challenge, I did it, and received a round of applause and high fives before preceding to discuss the duo’s roles and why they decided to join the cast of Kingsman.

“Matthew Vaughn’s version of these movies always interested me” explained Berry who is no stranger to spy flicks after starring in the James Bond film Die Another Day. “I was apart of the Bond series and I feel like this is similar but it’s also for the new generation.”

She continued, “Some of the elements are the same but I call it spy thriller 2.0, he takes it to the next level that no one else does right now.”

In the film Berry, Pascal, Jeff Bridges and Channing Tatum play members of the Statesmen – a U.S. Spy agency operating out of a Kentucky Bourbon distillery. Pascal told us he gained a newfound appreciation for men in suits, but still prefers his jeans.

“I play agent whiskey. I’m a southern gentlemen so I’m a little more buttoned up … I’m like the stateside version of those square pegs from across the pond,” he joked.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle hits theaters September 22.
