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

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

on

If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
