When Jay-Z and Beyonce released their joint album Everything is Love out of nowhere on June 16, there were all kinds of speculation and jokes on social media about them doing it intentionally in the same week Nas put out his new album NASIR.
There has been an opinion that Jay did it to compete with and beat Nas in the same week on the Charts but that theory doesn’t seem to have much substance as the two new York legends are good friends now. It is good for humor though and 50 Cent needs that fodder. DJ Whoo Kid seems to have an interview with his old boss coming soon, a snippet of which he has unveiled today.
In the clip, which you can watch below, 50 jokes that Hov intentionally but quietly did it to knock out Nas. Watch it below. Everything Is Love debuted at number 2 on the US Billboard 200 behind 5 Seconds of Summer’s Youngblood, with 123k sold in the first week while NASIR entered at #5 with 77k.
