Eric Benet Responds to Jay Z Shot on ‘4:44’ Song “Kill Jay Z”
On the song in question, titled "Kill Jay Z," Hov describes the details of his once-crumbling marriage with his wife Beyoncé. To contextualize the situation—his being on the verge of losing a woman perceived to be amongst the world's most beautiful—the Roc Nation boss compared it to the time Eric Benét divorced Halle Berry, who's also seen as being a world class beauty.
"You almost went Eric Benét/Let the baddest girl in the world get away/I don't even know what else to say/Nigga, never go Eric Benét/I don't even know what you woulda done/In the future, other niggas playin' football with your son," Hov raps on the No I.D.-produced track.
Now, Benét's clapped back, saying he's still got the baddest lady on the planet. "Hey yo #Jayz! Just so ya know, I got the baddest girl in the world as my wife....like right now! ," Benét tweeted earlier this morning (June 30).
Benét married Manuela Testolini, who is the ex-wife of the late Prince, about six years ago. They've had two daughters together and from the looks of things, they're still going strong.
