JAY Z line may have been misinterpreted.

Meek Mill released his fourth studio album, CHAMPIONSHIPS earlier today which features appearances from DrakeCardi BRick Ross, Jay-Z and more. Ross and Jay-Z team up with Meek on the Biggie-sampling track, "What's Free?" which found the Philly rapper holding his own alongside two of the biggest rappers in hip-hop. Many people interpreted part of Jay-Z's verse as a diss towards Kanye, but according to sources, that's not the case.

On "What's Beef," Jay-Z raps, "No red hat, don't Michael and Prince me and Ye/ They separate you when you got Michael and Prince's DNA/ I ain't one of these house n***as you bought." While many took that as Jay taking a swipe at Yeezy over his MAGA hat fanaticism

That particular line was a shot at Trump and his red MAGA Hat while the bars about Michael Jackson and Prince refer to the tensions between the two artists in the 80's and the 90's.

Hov is saying that even though he and Kanye have their differences, politically and otherwise, people shouldn't pit them against each other in the way they did Prince and Michael Jackson. Jay's reference to "house n***as" on the track is reportedly a shot at black people in politics who suck up to Donald Trump which might be directed towards Ben Carson.
