Many suspected that JAY-Z took shots at Future in his 4:44 intro track “Kill Jay Z.” The lyrics is as follows: “In the future, other n*ggas playin’ football with your son/You had lost it, 13 bottles of Ace of Spade what it did to Boston.” Listeners believe that the line was directed at Future and his family, referencing Ciara’s current relationship with Seattle Seahawks’ Russell Wilson.
Shortly after the album dropped, the “Mask Off” rapper shared a selfie on Snapchat that many think is a response to Jigga. The photo finds the Atlanta rapper holding up a money phone with the caption, “U ain’t got the juice like dat. MOOD.” Money phones are also spoken about in the 4:44 track “The Story of O.J.” JAY called out rappers who held stacks of dollar bills to their ear: “Y’all on the ‘gram holdin’ money to your ear / There’s a disconnect, we don’t call that money over here.”
