Jay-Z Explained What He Meant Behind That 'Money Phone' Line and Future Is Still Upset, Fires off Some Shady Tweets

Jay-Z pissed off a lot of rappers when he dismissed the ever-popular ‘money phone’ in “The Story of O.J.

“Y’all holdin’ money to your ear / There’s a disconnect, we don’t call that money over here,” he rapped.

Since then, Future, Drake, and other rappers have taken to social media to fire back — but Jay doesn’t understand why.

In his Rap Radar interview, Jay explained:

I didn’t even tell people to stop using the money phone. I didn’t say that. I had to listen again like ‘How is this being misinterpreted?’ because I just said it ain’t money to us. It ain’t. That’s just an honest statement. Money to us, me and my three friends on the floor at Golden State, not because the seats are expensive but because that’s what we’re doing, you’ve never seen that. Or, building brands and pushing it forward. That can’t be the end all, that can’t be our goal, to get money and show it on the Internet. That can’t be our goal, that’s some corny shit.”

Well, Future still isn’t happy with Jay’s explanation. He took to Twitter to fire off a few indirect tweets.

Future — leave it alone.
