Beyoncé Attends Jay Z’s B-Sides Show

Beyoncé was also behind the scenes and popped champagne with her hubby while matching him in black.

And while most people were in awe of Hov’s artistry on stage, others didn’t take too kindly to a freestyle he did in remembrance of Nipsey Hussle. In it, Jay Z encouraged people to “gentrify their own hood.”

“Gentrify your own hood before these people do it/ Claim eminent domain and have your people move in/ That’s a small glimpse into what Nipsey was doing/ For anybody still confused as to what he was doing.”

The line’s picked up steam on social media and caused controversy amongst folks who think Hov is glamourizing the system that pushes out lower-income people in favor of the affluent.

What do YOU think about Hov’s gentrify the hood comments???
