Black Twitter isn't feeling Jay Z's bars on Pharrell Williams' new track titled "Entrepreneur," set for release on Friday, Aug. 21.

The 50-year-old rapper teamed up with Pharrell, 47, for the new track, released in conjunction with the new TIME magazine issue "The New American Revolution" curated by Pharrell.

The issue celebrates the Black revolution in America. "I couldn't be more grateful to curate :The Next American Revolution" -- a special issue of @TIME Magazine that envisions a Black Future in an America where all people are actually created equal," Pharrell tweeted.

In a snippet of the song on Apple Music, Jay Z urges supporting Black businesses and being Black business owners.

But he got off on the wrong foot by diminishing Black Twitter.

"Black Twitter, what's that? When Jack gets paid, do you? For every one Gucci, support two FUBU’s."
 

Black Twitter was quick to denounce Jay Z for being out of touch with the times.

One Twitter user wrote:

"Jay Z today: Why y'all on black twitter? And buying Gucci instead of supporting Fubu?

"Jay Z four months from now: I'm very pleased to announce I'm collaborating with Gucci on their black twitter line."

Others chime in, knocking Jay Z for being too preachy about buying Black when he supported white brands in his music for decades.

"jay z for 25 years: “gucci, louis v, richard mille, goyard, fendi, louboutin, cartier, mercedes, in the box seats with the mink on brushing shoulders with the owners”

jay z in 2020: "buy more fubu."

Singer John Legend is People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive 2019. It shouldn't be a surprise that the liberal magazine chose Legend, who is a very vocal anti-Trump critic.

Actor Idris Elba, People's 2017 Sexiest Man Alive, congratulated Legend by joking with actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson (People's 2016 Sexiest Man Alive).

"My G Congratulations brother!!! You deserve it," Elba, 47, wrote. "DO NOT TELL @TheRock He still thinks he’s got the title, I didn't have the heart to tell him when I took it."

The regression of male masculinity is very evident in the men People magazine chose over the years.

Hollywood has waged war on toxic masculinity, so-called traditional masculinity norms that they say are harmful to women and children.

Hollywood is going to great lengths to redefine and ultimately erase masculinity in males as we know it.

Pharrell Williams, who is decidedly feminine, covered GQ magazine's 'New Masculinity' issue last month.

Effeminate musician Pharrell Williams is featured on the cover of GQ magazine's 'New Masculinity' issue.

In GQ's November issue Pharrell Williams apologizes for his masculinity and says he was "embarrassed" for perpetuating rape culture in his 2013 hit "Blurred Lines".

"Some of my old songs, I would never write or sing today. I get embarrassed by some of that stuff," the 46-year-old Aries said.

"It just took a lot of time and growth to get to that place... I think 'Blurred Lines' opened me up. I didn't get it at first. Because there were older white women who, when that song came on, they would behave in some of the most surprising ways ever. And I would be like, wow. They would have me blushing. So when there started to be an issue with it, lyrically, I was like, What are you talking about? There are women who really like the song and connect to the energy that just gets you up. And I know you want it - women sing those kinds of lyrics all the time. So it's like, What's rapey about that?"

The father of four said he realized that men use the same sort of language when taking advantage of biological women.

"...and it doesn't matter that that's not my behavior. Or the way I think about things. It just matters how it affects women. And I was like, Got it. I get it. Cool. My mind opened up to what was actually being said in the song and how it could make someone feel."

Music producer Pharrell Williams and his wife Helen Lasichanh carried matching purses while arriving at the Hotel and restaurant La Reserve during Paris Fashion Week. Frank Ocean says he wants to know the secret to Pharrell's boyish skin. "I exfoliate like a madman,” Pharrell, 45, told dazeddigital.com in 2017. "When you exfoliate and you drink a lot of water, that does good for you. To me, the key is just exfoliating, like a monster," he added. "There's a lot of dead skin. (I exfoliate) all the time. Like a narcissistic madman."
