What’s Beef? Rush Limbaugh Attacks Jay-Z Over “Magna Carta Holy Grail”
Rush Limbaugh has a problem with Jay-Z’s new album, despite never listening to it. The conservative race-baiter discussed Jigga’s album on his radio program this week, saying he can’t understand why corporations will distance themselves from Paula Deen for using the n-word, but not Jay.
“I got a couple of notes about this from people because Walmart is playing the song in certain stores with the lyrics unedited. Every other line features the N-word in there or the slang version of the word. From my spies, a bunch of nasty trash talk about women, you know, the whole ho’s and b-i-itches thing and the N-word in there,” Limbaugh explains, clearly demonstrating that he hasn’t one heard song on the album.
“You know, Mr. Z has become one of the hot gets on the New York media and society circuit. And, you know, we sit here, ladies and gentlemen, frequently, and we talk about culture and who gets in trouble for doing what. You see where a bunch of people finally hit up that company Capital One, ‘Drop Alec Baldwin. This guy is out there slurring-‘ it was a conservative group. ‘What are you doing with this guy that does nothing but bash gays all the time as your official spokesman?’ Baldwin can do and say whatever he wants and hold onto all of his sponsors because he’s a good liberal, and the same thing here with Mr. Carter.”
The political jokester then brought up Beyonce, and pondered if she approved of Jay’s lyrics. “Jay-Z has a wife at home by the name of Beyonce-Z, and I’ve always wondered — I guess it’s just show biz. Mr. Z goes home at the end of the day, tells Beyonce-Z what he recorded, reads the lyrics. ‘Oh, that’s great, honey, that’s great. They’ll really like it. This is so outrageous you might even get that Limbaugh thug talking about you.’ I mean, Dawn, if you’re husband trafficked in this stuff and came home, what would — I don’t know. It’s just me, I guess, but I just wonder if Beyonce-Z approves.”
Well, Rush, if you had actually listened to the album before opening that mouth of yours, you’d know Beyonce is featured on the album. So the likelihood she approves is pretty high.
