After hearing their names mentioned in Jay-Z’s newest record “Off That” featuring Drake [click to listen], conservative pundit Bill O’ Reilly and radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh had some choice words for the Brooklyn emcee.
Playing a snippet of the track on Fox News’ The O’ Reilly Factor [click to watch] (“This ain’t black verse white, my nigga we off that / Please tell Bill O’Reilly to fall back / Tell Rush Limbaugh to get off my balls / This 2010, not 1864”), Bill O’ Reilly sarcastically commented, “A regular Otis Redding, isn’t he?”
On Limbaugh’s The Rush Limbaugh Show, the radio host also took notice of Hova’s words, while taking his lyrics slightly out of context. “I have been mentioned in a rap song by the rapper Jay-Z…Is this [marking] a new development in my career to be singled out in a rap song by the famous rapper Jay-Z? I guess it is. As far as I know, I have never been mentioned in a rap song by anybody. I guess that means I’ve made it. I’m now in a rap tune by the famous rapper Jay-Z.”
Limbaugh continued, “I would remind the rapper Jay-Z; Mr. Z, it is President Obama who wants mandated circumcision. We had that yesterday. That means if we need to save our penises from anybody, it’s Obama. I did not know I was on anybody’s balls. I’m happy to know that they think I am though.”
Jay-Z‘s Blueprint 3 will be released on September 11.
