There are three players in this drama: Meek Mill, Jay-Z and Kanye West.
Last Friday, Meek Mill released his superlatively excellent fourth album Championships, which features the Jay-Z-co-starring track 'What's Free', wherein the latter raps, "No red hat, don’t Michael and Prince me and ‘Ye / They separate you when you got Michael and Prince’s DNA". Such was the (bizarre) Internet-resounding speculation that the line was conceived as a diss to Kanye that Jay himself took to Twitter to clarify that it wasn't:
The line clearly meant don’t pit me against my brothers no matter what our differences are (red hat) now go pick up Meek album . Drake and Meek on there together .— Mr. Carter (@S_C_) November 30, 2018
Kanye has since responded. He replied to Jay's tweet with his own, hinting at a sequel to their blockbuster joint album Watch The Throne, which crashed into the ether in 2011:
Throne 2 🤷🏿♂️— ye (@kanyewest) November 30, 2018
At this writing, nothing else is known about the long-gestating project but we will bring you updates as they come.
