Al Sharpton Isn't Too Worried About Jay-Z's '4:44' Reference To His Selfies

The reverend's selfies won't be silenced!

Published July 1, 2017

I don’t know how we got to this point, but we literally have Jay-Z referencing Al Sharpton on his new album, and not for his often profound words about race and religion.

The reverend has made himself into a meme recently by posting himself prior and post working out. The Internet has had a field day with these shenanigans and it’s been one of the biggest running jokes of 2017. It’s so big in fact, that even Hov has used some of the lyrics on his brand new 4:44 album.

“Y’all think small, I think Biggie / Y’all whole pass is in danger, ten Mississippi / Al Sharpton in the mirror takin’ selfies / How is him or Bill Cosby s’posed to help me?” he raps on the song “Family Feud.”

Well, Sharpton wasn’t going to let it pass, and decided to respond to Jay’s poking fun at him. Via Twitter, AS said he wasn’t about to stop taking selfies.

“Tell Jay Z we still taking selfies...but I'm taking care of business down here too!” he tweeted. “W/ @YazzTheGreatest in btwn sessions at #EssenceFest2017.”

We really hope Reverend Sharpton doesn’t stop. Y’all really have gotten out of hand with this though. Ugh, the tomfoolery.

Anyway, peep the reverend’s tweet about Jay-Z’s 4:44 line below.
