Lots has happened since Jay-Z shared his most recent album 4:44, including the release of several music videos like MaNyfaCedGod which appeared on YouTube just yesterday. As controversial and talked-about the body of music has been, he hasn’t personally contributed anything to the discussions about it aside from some footnotes on iHeartRadio — until now.
