JAY Z’s Stand Out ‘Scorpion’ Verse Checks TF Out Of George Zimmerman

Drake released his new album ‘Scorpion’ to much fanfare on social media Thursday night, but one of the standout bars from the album came from friendly rival Jay-Z on the track ‘Talk Up.’ 

Hov’s been candid, and more political over the past few years (see “We Made It”, “Seen It All”), but his latest social commentary was ferocious, and aimed appropriately at an enemy of Black America, George Zimmerman

 Jigga said, “Yall Killed X, & Let Zimmerman Live. Streets is done.”

Hov is referencing how rapper XXXTentacion was killed in broad daylight by his own people, while Zimmerman, who unjustly killed Trayvon Martin has been free and living peacefully, and bragging about how he got away with it on multiple occasions when in between brush-ins with the law.
