American Hip-hop legend and music mogul Jay-Z dropped his 13th studio album “4:44” during the early hours of today and literally sent the internet into meltdown.
The ten tracker album was released exclusively on Jay’s music streaming platform Tidal.
Jay-Z has dropped his album 4:44, in which he apologises to Beyoncé for often womanising, but one of the most surprising revelations come on the album’s third track, ‘Smile’ when Jay says his mum, Gloria Carter, is a lesbian.
__ ‘Momma had 4 kids but she’s a lesbian/had to pretend so long that she’s a thesbian/Had to hide in the closet, so she medicate. ‘Society shame and the pain was too much to take/Cried tears of joy when you fell in love/Don’t matter to me if it’s a him or her.’.
Jay’s mum then gets a feature role on the track with a spoken word performance about her sexuality, where she tells people: ‘Love who you love, because life isn’t guaranteed’
Here is the official breakdown of the album by Hov.
This is how the internet, twitter precisely reacted to the album.

Not saying that we don't got good rappers anymore, but after Jay Z dropped 4:44, I realized how mediocre & amateur rappers are now a days…
