Jay Z interacted with his fans via a question and answer session on his official Twitter account yesterday to promote his new album, Magna Carta Holy Grail. One fan asked the rap mogul about his reference to Miley Cyrus on his track “Somewhereinamerica,” which The DailyBeast.com calls “the worst song on the album.”
On the track, Jay Z raps: “They see I’m still putting work in / Cause somewhere in America / Miley Cyrus is still twerkin’.” The fan, who obviously has no clue about hip hop metaphors, asked Jigga, “You really think Miley Cyrus still twerking somewhere in America?”
“Yes!” Jay Z responded. “She represents and old worlds worst nightmare. Black neighbor and the daughter not seeing color.”
Jay Z responded to another Twitter user: “Miley is a GOD.”
Cyrus was flattered that Jay Z spit her name on his track — even though she too was clueless about his exact intentions.
“#twerkmileytwerk,” she tweeted. “Exactly right. I am an old worlds worst nightmare. #outwiththeold #inwiththenewnew.”
In reality, rappers such as Jay Z and Rick Ross use the names “Miley Cyrus” and “Justin Bieber” in their music as metaphors for cocaine, ecstasy, or “Molly,” the powder form of MDMA.
A DailyBeast.com reader, TripD, broke it down for those of us who aren’t familiar with Jay Z’s frequent use of double entendre’s:
“Feds still lurking” (Drug dealer: obvious that feds watch drug dealers. Rapper: Jay was just investigated about a month or two ago for his trip to Cuba)
“They see I’m still puttin work in” (Drug dealer: still hustling. Rapper: all they’re going to see him doing is furthering his brand across the globe.)
“Cause somewhere in America, Miley Cyrus is still twerkin” (Drug dealer: Miley Cyrus = white girl. White girl = coke. Jay did a similar play on this on the American Gangster album with Brittney Spears. So baisically, it’s that the coke is still out there on the streets, regardless of the feds lurking.
