Oh yeah, it’s still very much Scorpion season and Drake’s latest studio album is all anyone is talking about this weekend. That includes Waka Flocka, who took some umbrage at the bars Jay-Z spit on his “Talk Up” feature on the album referencing XXXTentacion and George Zimmerman.
“I got your President tweeting, I won’t even meet with him/Y’all killed X, let Zimmerman live/Streets is done,” Jay-Z rapped, and it didn’t just turn Waka Flocka’s head as many found the line a little off its mark while seemingly blaming the streets for not doing more.
Waka Flocka wrote in a now-deleted tweet, “I respect everything bout Jay-Z but on that Drake record, those words were uncalled for J.”
He continued with, “You got way more coins/connections then us my g…you could’ve got that job done but blame the unguided youth.”
In another tweet, Waka said that XXXTentacion’s death was “pure hate and jealousy” which seems to be the general consensus considering the facts we all know so far.

Controversial and alleged domestic abuser XXXTentacion says he is quitting music.
The career of embattled rapper XXXTentacion continues to take more unexpected turns after he announced on Friday (Oct. 27) that he was through with making music.
In an Instagram story, X appeared dejected by his ups and down in the music industry and said that due to the “hate,” he’s announcing his retirement. “Sad to announce I will not be making or releasing any music,” he wrote. “I am tired of being mentally abused for trying to help people, I am tired of the hate, I’m done.”
X’s decision comes on the heels of his whopping $ 6 million deal with Capitol Records/Caroline that he inked earlier his week. After describing the employees at Capitol Records as “wonderful people,” X announced that he’d be axing his deal with the label.
XXXTentacion has proven to be an exceptional troll. So we’re not holding our breath on this one.
