Future felt like flexing on Hip Hop billionaire JAY-Z over the weekend, tweeting a series a boastful posts that quickly sparked a debate.
JAY-Zs life reads like a movie. Born into poverty, he started selling crack in Brooklyns Marcy Houses projects during which time he survived three shootings. As Hip Hop blossomed all around him, he found himself rapping alongside his mentor Jaz-O and eventually Big Daddy Kane. After establishing Roc-A-Fella Records with Kareem Biggs Burke and Damon Dash, JAY-Zsteadily evolved into Hip Hops first billionaire, putting in buckets of blood, sweat and tears along the way. Now married to pop superstar Beyonc and a father to their three children, JAY-Z is all about family and his business portfolio, which seems to expand by the day. But apparently, Future felt like flexing on Hov over the weekend, tweeting a series a boastful posts that quickly sparked a debate.

FUTURE/FREEBANDZ (@1future) December 18, 2021 The backlash was swift, with many wondering what Futurewas smoking to make such ridiculous statements. As Los Angeles Chargers linebacker Damon Lloyd said, Yall on herr saying Future catalog better than Jay-Zs? Yea Im off for the day. Another tweet read simply, JAY-Z= BOSS. FUTURE=WHO? and included a video clip of someone rapping a JAY-Z song word-for-word with the caption, In honor of yall losing yall minds and saying Future is better than JAY-Z. But others found Futures statements perfectly acceptable, with one fan saying, This is true, but Jay-Z is a better artist. Im not even a Jay-Z or Future fan, but objectively speaking Future is indeed bigger in the streets. Jay-Z = BOSS
