Noname has spoken to Ebro Darden about her controversial song "Namesake," off her Sundial album, where she disses Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Rihanna, and Kendrick Lamar for working with the NFL. 

She did so becasue Jay's Roc Nation is the league's entertainment strategist, and Kendrick, Bey, and Rihanna have all performed at the Super Bowl halftime show. 

"Read in between the line at the crime scene / I ain’t f*cking with the NFL or Jay-Z /  Propaganda for the military complex, the same gun that shot lil’ Terry out West / The same gun that shot Senair in the West Bank / We all think the Super Bowl is the best thing," raps Noname, before she gets at Beyoncé, Ri and K Dot.

But in her chat with Ebro, the talented Chicago spitter said she doesn't have anything personal against Jay despite the diss.


 

"I don’t hate this man," said Noname. "I don’t know Jay-Z. He’s a total stranger. We just have ideological differences, that’s all, which the song was just talking about a lot of things, but definitely complacency from all of us."

"I think the names got the most focus like, ‘Go Rihanna, go. Go, Beyonce, go,'" she added. "But really that was supposed to be me mimicking the crowd like, ‘This is how y’all look, making all these critiques about folks on the internet but then we’d be running to the shows to go and support."

Have you rocked to Sundial yet? If so, what do you think?
