Jay-Z Gets Push Back From The Anti Defamation League

jay-z-theo-wargo-946Damn, Hova can’t get a break huh? The critics were on deck ready to criticize the rap mogul Jay-. A major American Jewish organization  condemned the lyrics in one of his songs (Still Nigga) on 4:44 that appear to promote anti-Semitic stereotypes.The Anti-Defamation League, an organization that monitors bigotry in the United States and abroad, voiced its objection to a line from a song on Jay-Z’s new album.

As per The Anti-Defamation League :The idea that Jews “own all the property” in this country and have used credit to financially get ahead are odious and false.‘Yet, such notions have lingered in society for decades, and we are concerned that this lyric could feed into preconceived notions about Jews and alleged Jewish “control” of the banks and finance.’

Jay-Z’s representatives have yet to publicly comment on the matter.
