MNBC’s Ari Melber breaks down Jay Z’s ‘God Did’ verse: the Nigerian reference in the analysis might surprise you, or will it?

Jay Z’s ‘God Did’ verse has a lot more cultural implication for black communities than you may have thought.

God Did may be a foreign song but it’s getting a lot of love from Nigerian listeners, evidenced by its position on the Top 10 Most Streamed Songs on Apple Music Nigeria Chart. The monstrous DJ Khaled produced hit featuring Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Jay Z, John Legend, and Friday continues to dominate discussions among Hip Hop communities, with Jay Z’s 4 minutes verse being the major bone of contention.

The legendary American rapper who has been retired for quite some time now, dropped what many people have referred to as his greatest verse of all time, while some think we already have the Grammy winner for the best rap song of 2022. But beyond Hip Hop, Jay’s verse appears to be focussed on calling out the ills in America.

While he (Jay Z) brags about becoming a billionaire and making a few other people rich, Jay’s bars are as conscious as ever and every line has a reference in time as adjudged by this MSNBC presenter Ari Melber, who begins his analysis of the verse from a 1996 conversation between legendary American TV presenter Mike Wallace and religious leader Louis Farrakhan.

It will shock you to discover the Nigerian reference in the conversation between Wallace and Farrakhan. Check out the video below, make sure you watch till the end.
