The ten-track LP finds the 47-year-old in the best shape of his life lyrically. Not only does he expound on his trials and tribulations that nearly demolished his marriage, but he deftly illustrates ways for people of color to thrive in the new age of an America led by President Trump. DJ Hustle
Take a look at the five things we’ve learned when we first listened to JAY-Z’s comeback album 4:44 below.
After watching the media skewer him for his past indiscretions stemming from his infidelity to his superstar wife, to his involvement in the stabbing of Lance “Un” Rivera in 1999, Hov seemingly leads the charge in beheading the man he dreads most: Himself. The skeletons that were collecting dust in Hov’s million dollar closet has finally been dragged out on records like “Kill Jay Z” and “Smile.” On “4:44,” you find a man who’s desperate to win back his best friend and wife, Beyonce. You hear the remorse and regret in his actions after he dipped in the pool of betrayal with Becky with the good hair. For once, Superman’s armor is no longer impenetrable. What’s even more amazing? Hov is finally okay with revealing the cracks and imperfections that once scarred him years ago. DJ Hustle
2. He’s On a Mission to Empower His People of Color
Known for bragging about his opulence, Hov places his financial success in the back seat on 4:44. With the current state of the country in sheer disarray, Hov attempts to sprinkle wisdom onto his listeners. Fortunately, on 4:44, he isn’t feverishly bragging about his new-found Audemars. For album 13, he tries to give everyone “a few million dollars worth of game for $9.99.” We can’t be mad at that at all.
3. He Still Knows His Pen Game Is Godly
Despite Hov spilling out his emotions on 4:44, he doesn’t allow his detractors to prey on his vulnerabilities and eat him alive. Though his last project came out in 2013 with Magna Carta Holy Grail, his wordplay and delivery remains immaculate. On “Family Feud,” he thrashes his haters with his mightiest weapon of them all — his pen. On “Bam,” he flexes his lyrical muscles again when he raps, “I be skipping leg day, I still run the world/I press the head of your team with one fingercurl.” HustleTV
