As mentioned a couple days ago, one of the two latest tracks to be released from Jay-Z’s upcoming Blueprint 3, “Off That” with Drake, features an especially great verse with jabs at Rush Limbaugh and Bill O’Reilly: “They say black vs. white my nigga we off that/ please tell Bill O’Reilly to fall back/ tell Rush Limbaugh to get off my balls/ it’s 2010 not 1864.” Now, both Limbaugh and O’Reilly have responded. On his radio show, Limbaugh muses:
As far as I know I have never been mentioned in a rap song by anybody. I guess it means I’ve made it. I’m now in a rap tune by the famous rapper Jay-Z.
That’s cute (although he then goes on to make some awkward and strange comments about circumcision). Meanwhile, Bill O’Reilly comes off like, well, a smug jerk (video after the jump).
On the other hand, isn’t comparing anyone to Otis Redding kind of a huge compliment?
