Eric Benet Responds to JAY-Z's Touchy Lyrics About Infidelity

Eric Benet Responds to JAY-Z's Touchy Lyrics About Infidelity

The battle of the baddest.

Published June 30th

The fresh Tidal release of Jay-Z’s 10 tracks of revelations on 4:44 has shown us a side of Jay we’ve never quite seen before, as his most poignant lyricism gives insight into what fans feared most: trouble in Carter paradise.

But besides spurring the BeyHive into a frenzy, confirming the infidelity rooted deeply in Beyoncé’s Lemonade project, it looks like some of Jay’s “Kill Jay Z” lyrics have also hit close to home for another industrymate: Eric Benet.

  1. Toward the end of the album’s first track, Jay alludes to Eric Benet’s former relationship with Hollywood’s premier A-list film star Halle Berry

  2. The now-remarried neo-soul crooner, however, didn’t take very kindly to the reference and shot back an FYI for Jay
  3. And, well, we’ll let the Internet take it from there…
