Jay Z has finally dropped his highly anticipated album 4:44 and he doesn’t hold back in the slightest. The album is an answer to Beyonce’s Lemonade but the rapper also addresses everything from his public Kanye beef to his opinion on other rappers.
One of the most notorious lines from his new song Kill Jay Z has garnered the attention of a celebrity who chose to respond via Twitter, Eric Benet.
In Kill Jay Z, the now father of three raps, “You almost went Eric Benet, let the baddest girl in the world get away.” Jay goes on to rap, “Didn’t even know what else to say. Never go Eric Benet.”
We all know that Beyonce is one of the baddest girls in the game but who was it that Eric Benet let get away? It was none other than Academy Award-winning actress Halle Berry.
The two were married from 2001 to 2005. The couple decided to split after Berry admitted that her husband was unfaithful many times.
Benet was caught cheating merely days before Berry’s history-making Oscar win, but that wasn’t the first time. Sources say that the musician slept with more than 10 other women during his marriage to Halle and two of the women were close friends of hers.
Jay Z basically admits to stepping outside of his marriage but doesn’t want to follow in Eric’s footsteps by prompting Beyonce to file for divorce. According to Us Weekly, 50-year-old caught wind of the line and took to twitter to let Jay know that he apparently doesn’t regret it.
“Hey yo #Jayz! Just so ya know, I got the baddest girl in the world as my wife… like right now,” the tweet reads. Benet is currently wed to 40-year-old Manuela Testolini. The two have been together since 2011. Eric definitely felt the need to defend his wife although he let Halle Berry get away because of his infidelities.
Beyonce and Jay Z have clearly worked through their issues because the two have just welcomed their newborn twins and moved them into a lavish mansion.
The couple welcomed their twins around June 15 according to The Sun. The rumors are that Queen Bey had one boy and one girl who had to stay in the hospital for jaundice since they were rumored to be born too early.
Luckily, the twins are reportedly happy and healthy in addition to have arrived home to be with their famous parents. The names of the babies haven’t officially been released, but word is that Beyonce recently trademarked the names Sir and Rumi Carter.
