When Lyrics Go Wrong…

I arrived on the day Fred Hampton died/ Uh, real niggas just multiply

This bar from Hov in the Murder To The Excellence track from Watch The Throne collab album with Kanye has stirred up some problems….though it is blatantly obvious that Jay-Z’s intent was to show respect to the Black Panther chairman who was murdered during a FBI raid:: his son Fred Hampton Jr feels otherwise and has recently spoke on the situation:

referring to Hov as “Slave-Z”…He feels like the line was distasteful and factually incorrect. Fred Hampton didn’t get murdered: he was assassinated!

There is still no response from Jay-Z or Kanye yet…

So readers do you think The black panthers son has any validity to “calling out” of Hov?
