Jay Z Responds to Drake Diss On “We Made It (Remix)”
While Jay Electronica was apologizing, Jay Z stepped down from his throne to give Drake a little lesson in “Rapping About What You Really Own 101.” During his pot-stirring Macklemore/Kanye-bashing interview with Rolling Stone back in February, sensitive Aubrey made a slick comment about Jigga’s overuse of art references in his lyrics being “corny.” In response, Jay raps: “Sorry Mr. Drizzy for so much art talk/Silly me rappin’ ’bout s#!t that I really bought.” Get you some art, Drake.

Jay Electronica Apologizes for Album Delay
Yesterday (March 23), Jay Electronica dropped an unexpected remix to Drake (oh, yeah, and Souljah Boy’s) “We Made It,” featuring his boss/boy Jay Z.

Beyoncé Lands New Toyota Commercial
Since Jay Z is all into rapping about the life he really lives, I guess that means his wife is about to start singing about pushin’ Corollas and Camrys… because Beyoncé just became the latest spokeswoman for Toyota.

That’s all well and dandy, but I really doubt we’d ever see Mrs. Carter riding around partitioning in the back of a Tacoma.
