Kim Kardashian is reportedly not impressed with the subliminal disses Jay-Z served her husband Kanye West on the newly released album 4:44.
Lyrics in the album’s first track, Kill Jay-Z, had a lot people thinking that Jay was throwing shots at Kanye.
Although, the 47-year-old didn’t drop any names, the lyrics do really seem to refer to specific incidents in their strained relationship.
Just take a look at the lyrics for yourself.
Lyrics of Kill Jay-Z reportedly referencing Kanye West
You dropped outta school, you lost your principles
I know people backstab you, I felt bad too
But this ‘fuck everybody’ attitude ain’t natural
But you ain’t a Saint, this ain’t KumbaYe
But you got hurt because you did cool by ‘Ye
You gave him 20 million without blinkin’
He gave you 20 minutes on stage, fuck was he thinkin’?
“Fuck wrong with everybody?” is what you sayin’
But if everybody’s crazy, you’re the one that’s insane
Fans were quick to point out the apparent subliminal references.
For starters Kanye’s first album was called College Dropout and Jay raps, ‘you dropped outta school’.
It does seem like a dig at his old friend, doesn’t it?

He also slips in words like ‘Saint’ and the suffix ‘Ye’, causing many listeners to believe he was referring to Kanye’s album Saint Pablo and Kanye’s nickname Ye.
We can see why Kim would be pissed especially as the two rappers were once friends and have famously worked together.
According to Hollywood Life, sources claim the 36-year-old reality TV star is upset about Jigga’s lyrics and feels like it was an insensitive move.
A source told the website that ‘she gets very protective of her husband, like a mama bear […] She thinks it was a low blow to diss Kanye and throw around words like ‘insane’ after all he’s been through.
‘Kanye had a real difficult time last year and is still coming out of it, so to hit him like that wasn‘t cool’, the source added.
Everyone knows that the KimYe household has gone through some very difficult as of late after Kim was robbed at gunpoint October 2016 and Kanye was committed to the UCLA Medical Center for psychological evaluation.
After his hospitalisation, Kanye delivered some odd rants on his Saint Pablo Tour that worried many people and also mentioned Jay and his wife Beyoncé.
‘Kim would like nothing more than to drop the whole feud and move on with their lives,’ the source told Hollywood Life.
‘She likes Bey and Jay and would love to be friends—but it has to be a two-way street. If they aren’t interested then so be it.’

Kanye has also reportedly left Jay-Z’s streaming service TIDAL in recent days, with Kanye’s lawyers reportedly sending a letter to the company over a month ago telling them that West never received a promised bonus for bringing in 1.5 million new subscribers with his album Saint Pablo and that he has also not been reimbursed for music videos
