Prince’s Lawyer Isn’t Happy With Jay-Z After He Speaks Truth In His Latest ‘4:44’ Album

Published On July 7, 2017 | By patrice | The latest posts

In his most recently dropped album ‘4:44,’ rapper Jay Z speaks some truth for his newest track “Caught Their Eyes,” which is where he chooses to call out one public figure that is now at the center of controversy, late singer Prince’s former lawyer, L. Londell McMillan.

McMillan, who’d worked as the famous singer’s lawyer and business partner for more than a decade and is now serving as the business advisor for three of his heirs, had first been advanced to the estate’s special administrator back in November of last year. This was when the estate first sought out to sue Jay Z’s streaming company TIDAL, as well as Roc Nation, for alleged copyright infringement.

TIDAL was the only streaming service that offered up Prince’s musical catalog after the passing of the pop star back in April of 2016, and they’d also argued that they had Prince’s blessing to do so.

Despite the wariness of other streaming services, Prince exclusively gave TIDAL permission to stream his 2015 album ‘HITNRUN’ exclusively for a total of 90 days back in 2015. The estate inked the licensing to mark Prince’s approval with other company’s as well, such as Spotify and Apple Music, however, they are still pressing forward with their lawsuit against TIDAL.

On the track, Jay Z rhymes: “I sat down with Prince, eye to eye/ He told me his wishes before he died / Now, Londell McMillan, he must be color blind/ They only see green from them purple eyes.”

He continues: “This guy had ‘slave’ on his face/ You think he wanted the masters with his masters?/ You greedy bastards sold tickets to walk through his house/ I’m surprised you ain’t auction off the casket.”

McMillan told Billboard: “I like the beat, but I wonder who he thinks helped Prince to take ‘slave’ off of his face. It was a homie Jay Z grew up with in the same neighborhood, Londell McMillan.”

This new album from Jay Z has seemed to set some people off, however, it’s obvious that Hov could care less. ‘4:44’ has already went platinum in only five days and we are more excited about what could be coming from him next, being that he has been taking it upon himself to speak more words of empowerment.
