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?”

Jay-Z has canceled his 2020 Made in America festival.

The music event hosted annually by the 51-year-old rapper and his music company Roc Nation in Philadelphia on Labor Day weekend has been canceled this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.

In a statement released on Wednesday (July 1), the company has rescheduled the event for 2021.

“2020 is a year like no other. We are in a pivotal time in this nation’s history,” Roc Nation said in their statement via THR. “Collectively, we are fighting parallel pandemics, COVID-19, systematic racism and police brutality. Now is the time to protect the health of our artists, fans, partners and community as well as focus on our support for organizations and individuals fighting for social justice and equality in our country. Therefore, the Made In America festival will be rescheduled for Labor Day Weekend 2021.”

This year’s Made In America festival was set to take place Sept. 5-6 at the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia.

Roc Nation said tickets for the 2020 event will be valid in 2021.

“If anyone would prefer a refund, an email will be sent to request one,” the statement continued. “For any further ticket inquiries, please reach out to the point of purchase.”

Back in April, Jay-Z teamed up with this fellow entertainer to co-fund $6 million for pandemic relief.

“Court hearing in Brunswick, Georgia this morning. No flights to take us there last night. @leemerrittesq and I spent hours trying to find flights or cars. At 1 am we started losing hope till we got a call from Jay Z’s people at Roc Nation who chartered a flight for us to attend this hearing with the family of Ahmaud Arbery,” added Blerim Elmazi, a civil rights attorney, on Instagram.
