In “Caught Their Eyes,” one of the tracks on JAY-Z’s new album, 4:44, the rapper calls out a figure now at the center of controversy surrounding the Prince estate: Prince’s former attorney and former estate advisor L. Londell McMillan.
McMillan, who worked as Prince’s lawyer and business partner for more than a decade and now serves as a business advisor to three of Prince’s heirs, had been advising the estate’s special administrator in November when the estate sued the parent company of JAY-Z’s streaming service Tidal,.
On the track, JAY-Z rhymes: “I sat down with Prince, eye to eye/ He told me his wishes before he died / Now, Londell McMillan, he must be color blind/ They only see green from them purple eyes.”
He continues: “This guy had ‘slave’ on his face/ You think he wanted the masters with his masters?/ You greedy bastards sold tickets to walk through his house/ I’m surprised you ain’t auction off the casket.”
McMillan told Billboard: “I like the beat, but I wonder who he thinks helped Prince to take ‘slave’ off of his face. It was a homie Jay Z grew up with in the same neighborhood, Londell McMillan.”
