Jay-Z Rips ‘Crackers’ Who Stormed the Capitol in Political Song

Rap mogul Jay-Z, who’s for years joined efforts to bail out protesters after violence broke out in cities like Ferguson, Missouri, and Baltimore, has now used a racial slur to describe the rioters who stormed the Capitol on January 6, calling them “crackers” in the new politically themed song “What It Feels Like.” The song also features vocals by the slain Los Angeles rapper Nipsey Hussle.
