Rapping for four minutes, Hov took credit for molding four billionaires: himself, Ye, Rihanna and a special mention of LeBron James as a “Roc Boy.” The Roc Nation founder also cleared up any rumors of beef with Meek Mill, who recently left the management company after a decade.

“Me and Meek could never beef, I freed that nigga from a whole bid, Hov did,” he raps on “God Did.” “Next time we have a discussion who the G.O.A.T., you donkeys know this.”

Hov fans hopped on social media to praise the Brooklyn veteran for his memorable verse.

Before the album’s release, DJ Khaled told Speedy Norman of Complex that “God Did” is amongst the ‘greatest’ of Hov bars.

“The rumors are true,” he said. “A lot of rumors are not true, but these are true. I’m a Jay fan, you’re a Jay fan? So everybody has their favorite verse of Jay. I’ll let y’all decide that. I’m telling you, if there was a greatest hits of Jay-Z verses, it’s on there. That I’ll tell you, for a fact. The rumors are true, that’s for a fact.”
