Pharrell Williams & Jay-Z Take On Racial Inequalities in New Song 'Entrepreneur' - Read the Lyrics & Listen Now!

Pharrell Williams and Jay-Z have teamed up for a new song with a powerful message.

The two musicians released their collab titled “Entrepreneur,” which is about the racial inequalities Black people face in the United States.

“In this position with no choice / A system imprison young black boys,” Pharrell raps. “Distract with white noise / The brainwashed become hype boys.”

Jay then joins in, referencing social media platforms and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.

“Uh, lies told to you, through YouTubes and Hulus,” Jay raps. “Shows with no hues that look like you do / Black Twitter, what’s that? When Jack gets paid, do you? / For every one Gucci, support two FUBUs.”

Ahead of the release of the song, Pharrell opened up about the message behind the song.

“The intention for a song was all about how tough it is to be an entrepreneur in our country to begin with,” Pharrell shared with Time. “Especially as someone of color, there’s a lot of systemic disadvantages and purposeful blockages. How can you get a fire started, or even the hope of an ember to start a fire, when you’re starting at disadvantages with regards to health care, education and representation?”
