Everybody’s talking about Jay-Z’s new album 4:44, especially his peers.

West Coast rap icon Snoop Dogg recently offered his thoughts on Jay’s anticipated album, which released exclusively on TIDAL. However, Snoop got it somewhere else.

In a video review on social media, the rap legend admitted to pirating the album. LMFAO! In his defense, Snoop also explained that he wasn’t even actually aware of TIDAL in the first place.

“Top of the morning,” Snoop says in the video. “I want to shoot a shout out to JAY-Z just dropped another muthaf*ckin’ hot album, 4:444:44. But you know what? I don’t got TIDAL, so a n*gga had to bootleg it to me. I’m on iTunes and sh*t cuz, I don’t understand that — y’all gotta explain that to me. I went to iTunes looking for his album and I couldn’t find it. But my homie sent it to me, you understand me. But um, shout out to JAY-Z, my n*gga. He did it again. See, I ain’t no hater, I love the game for what it’s worth — the young n*ggas and the old n*ggas. Practice that. Practice showing love. Practice supporting other muthaf*ckas other than yourself. Yeah, do that.”

Pirating it wasn’t that bad… at least he was honest and showed support. Fans can also get a free copy at and entering their email and using the promo code, SPRINT.

And, if Snoop still wants to support Jay and cop the album, 4:44 will hit iTunes and Apple Music on Friday (July 7).
