Lord Jamar’s initiative follows JAY-Z’s subtle jab at the “Money Phone” pose on his song, “The Story of O.J.” when he rapped: “Y’all on the ‘Gram holding money to ya’ ear/ There’s a disconnect/ We don’t call that money over here.” This didn’t sit well with Baton Rouge rapper Boosie Badazz, who claimed that he has love for Hov, but “Louisiana n***as don’t rock like that.”
