It's been a big week for the Carters -- but, to be honest, when is it not?
Beyonce, or Mrs. Carter as she has called herself before, released "Bow Down / I Been On," a fierce new track, which serves as the singer's first since the singles off of her 2011 album, "4." Now Mr. Carter, Jay-Z, has dropped a much hyped remix to Kendrick Lamar's "B-tch Don't Kill My Vibe."
First heard at South By Southwest, the remix to "B-tch Don't Kill My Vibe" was released in full this week. The track has Jay-Z celebrating his successes and referencing his and Beyonce's very public friendship with the Obamas.
Jay-Z boasts in the song, "In the White House with a mink / Running through that b-tch like it's my house / All up in the hall like a mall / Told you motherf--kers, all I do is ball." He then mentions President Obama and another famous face, saying, "Sittin' next to Hillary smellin' like dank / Presidental pardon, name one ni--a out there harder than him / I'll wait." Rolling Stone reports that the Hillary mentioned is likely Hillary Clinton as Jay-Z attended the inauguration with the then-Secretary of State.
Jay also gives a nod to Beyonce in the lyrics, rapping "Up in the clouds, me and my spouse / Rumors on the ground gettin' too loud / Please turn them shits down, can't hear myself think."
The couple's marriage was also recently referenced in Bey's "Bow Down / I Been On," when the singer stresses, "I took some time to live my life, but don't think I'm just his little wife."
Lamar spoke about his collaboration with Jay-Z, telling MTV, "Always looked up to the greats to be a great. So to actually be on a track with him, it's an accomplishment."
