Jay-Z disses Bill O'Reilly, Rush Limbaugh in 'Off That' featuring Drake: Hear it here

So you think you’re all cool and hip, huh? Well, you are not as cool as famous rappers Jay-Z or Drake — and you are certainly not as cool as Jay-Z and Drake together. This is the central thesis of “Off That,” the newly leaked Drake collab from Jay’s upcoming The Blueprint 3, and it’s hard to argue with. Just accept it: Whatever cutting-edge trends you think you’re inventing, Jigga and Drizzy already discarded as played-out years ago. Facts are facts.

The fizzy beat behind “Off That” comes from Timbaland; while he and Jay-Z have done more ground-breaking work in the past, those two are evidently still incapable of creating a bad track when they team up. Drake’s contributions to the song are limited to the hook, which he handles competently. And Jay? His ever-changing flow is on point as per usual, and he even sneaks a few smart lines into what is essentially a silly flossing anthem: “Please tell Bill O’Reilly to fall back/Tell Rush Limbaugh/To get off my balls/It’s 2010, not 1864!” I love party jams that come with stealthy political undertones, so I just about stood up and clapped when I heard that verse.

Listen to the leaked version of “Off That” below (some NSFW lyrics), and tell us: How do you like it? What do you think of Jay-Z’s latest lyrical shots at right-wing talking heads? Does this leak make you more or less excited for the Sept. 11 arrival of The Blueprint 3?

UPDATE: If that’s not enough Jay-Z/Timbaland action for you, another new Tim-produced Blueprint 3 cut called “Reminder” just leaked. Despite a somewhat irritating hook, it is possibly even catchier than “Off That.” Don’t miss Jay’s jabs at “all rhymers/with Alzheimer’s”!

    i don’t listen to rap music anymore anyways but while they do have the right to say whatever they want in their lyrics including their own personal opinions i can’t help but think their opinions are simply racial motivated. rush and bill do not oppose obama because he is black but because he is a socialist. people that like or dislike these two political commentators realize this. they are pinheads.

    • Southern Boy

      Bill O’reily and some other idiot bashed Jay Z on the O reily factor, i might have been Rush(cant really remember, But they did bash jay Z first

  • darrin

    jay-z and drake are pinheads let me clarify

    • erikawas

      Best Rapper Alive
      Worst Broadcaster Alive or Dead

    Jay-Z is obviously looking for Free Advertisement on high rated shows. Look close kids, this is how a celeb sells out.

    • erikawas

      I believe I speak for HOVA when I say he does not want or need a red cent from anyone that tunes in to Fox News ever.


    Yes… the Pinheads fell into Jay-z’s trap.. so typical. Rush and Bill will be talking..This is only the beginning… Bill and Rush wont last forever.. let the Music reign on these ” high rated shows” LOSERS

    • Robert

      So basically, if someone disagrees with your opinion they are either a racist, socialist, bigot or some other random insult. They just can’t have an opinion against yours. Can you even say any reason why you don’t like Bill other than he is dumb or something random. Bring a persuasive argument, I am listening, and don’t bring some BS, you have just entered the do some research and then talk zone!

  • Music Lover

    I can’t believe anyone would actually listen to this, much less watch it or pay for it!

    • erikawas

      And what do you listen to that is so superior?

      HOVA! /_\

    • Robert

      Bash on Jay-Z all you want, he makes great music.

  • Jerem S.

    “Please tell Bill O’Reilly to fall back/Tell Rush Limbaugh/To get off my balls/It’s 2010, not 1864!”

    I’ll bet Bill O’Reilly and Rush Limbaugh couldn’t give a crap about JayZ and Drake, and I’d like to ask how they’re “on my (His)b**s”?

    Other than these artists fanboys, no one really cares.

    • Southern Boy

      Bill O reilly spent 23 minutes on his show talking about Jay Z, i think he cares

      • erikawas

        Good one Southern Boy!

      • xxxxxxx

        i watch bill o everyday and i do not let me say do not remember a 23 segment wasted on the sell out they call HOVA. get your facts right

      • Robert

        Southern Boy, buy a T.V. get a computer, and awtch google. Never did bill spend 23 minutes on Jay-Z. But I am sure you don’t care cause your gangsta. Just say what you want to say without any proof.

  • myron

    I wonder if the author of this piece, Simon Vozick-Levinson, of Entertainment Weekly, a supposedly mainstream publication, would want to stand up and clap about a song that criticized Democrats/Liberals/Progressives.

    I didn’t think so.

  • Ross

    Wow, who knew so many right wingers read EW.com…

  • jkp

    I think myron needs to take another ride on the wahmbulance.

  • H.N.I.C

    Speaking of right wingers, look at how defensive they get…It hurts’em!

  • morgan

    No wonder why no body listens to rap anymore. What a complete moron who couldnt climb out of a wet paper bag.

    • Billybob

      Many people like rap you fool.
      Have you ever heard of Lollipop by Lil Wayne, sadly its rap, but yeah it sold like soup during the depression.

  • Amanda

    I would like to remind people in the entertainment world that conservatives buy music, watch tv, and go to movies too.

    • erikawas

      You’re correct! Someone’s got to listen to country and watch Miley Cirus!

  • Will

    Rush & Bill speak for, at best,10% of America. In our country many of us have fought &/or died so they can spew their racism & ignorance.

    Nevertheless,you got to love Jay-z calling BS on these fact challenged Palinistas!

    • john

      American’s in all states are more associated with conservatism, then liberalism (pew poll). So I would say that number is much higher then 10%

    • Robert

      Will, do some research then talk, otherwise you just sound dumb.

      They were around way before Sarah Palin, sooooooo.

      A majority of the country believes themselves to have conservative values. Try again.

    August 1864 — General William T. Sherman’s Atlanta Campaign.

    Union General Sherman departed Chattanooga, and was soon met by Confederate General Joseph Johnston. Skillful strategy enabled Johnston to hold off Sherman’s force — almost twice the size of Johnston’s. However, Johnston’s tactics caused his superiors to replace him with General John Bell Hood, who was soon defeated. Hood surrendered Atlanta, Georgia, on September 1; Sherman occupied the city the next day. The fall of Atlanta greatly boosted Northern morale.

  • Bob

    Why doesn’t Jay-Z attack Keith Olbermann or Rachel Maddow? They are much worse. The Democrats are a disaster for the country.

    • erikawas

      Have you completely forgotten about the last 8 years? Where is your leg to stand on?
