SZA Has Jay Electronica Blocked

While the two haven’t had any direct exchanges in the public eye, many assume it stems from a Twitter rant the New Orleans MC went on recently.

SZA Has Jay Electronica Blocked

A strange "beef" of sorts recently popped up, and many believe it's because of differing astrological beliefs, believe it or not. Moreover, Jay Electronica recently revealed that SZA apparently has him blocked on social media, although he didn't elaborate much as to why. Regardless, he made the revelation on a bar from his most recent guest verse on one of the most anticipated short releases in hip-hop this year. This week, Swizz Beatz released his Hip Hop 50: Vol. 2 EP on Friday (April 21), which also includes Lil Wayne, Benny The Butcher, Lil Durk, Nas, and more. Specifically, Jay appears on the track "Khalas," where the MC also addresses the reception to his Jay-Z collab project A Written Testimony.

"I did an album with Hov, lames let all their hate vent," Jay Electronica raps on the track. "So I fell back three years like, ‘Go ahead, be great then’ / I popped out with Flygod, I popped out on ‘Donda’ / I popped out with Russ, then Vic Mensa and then Ambré / I popped up at Spades and I popped up at Vandals / And my sister keep asking why I got blocked by Solana [SZA].”

Jay Electronica Reveals SZA Blocked Him On "Khalas"

Of course, SZA and Jay Electronica haven't had any public exchanges or interactions, especially on social media. As such, fans looked to the only time that their two names popped up simultaneously from one party or the other. That came from one of the New Orleans rapper's Twitter rants, where he asked many in the music industry whether they believe in God. While SZA, Earl Sweatshirt, Questlove, and many others received a mention and question from Jay Electron', Diddy was the only one to answer.

Also, some fans and outlets theorized that Jay Electronica's criticism of astrology might have rubbed SZA- an avid believer from what her social media presence indicates- the wrong way. "Motherf***ers will tell you mercury is in retrograde and don’t even have a telescope," he wrote in his tweet barrage. "Naw, I’m good. Salaam Alaikum." However, this is all speculation at the end of the day. Maybe other behind the scenes factors hidden from the public contributed to this blocking. After all, it could just be a very innocent or inconsequential reason, as well. Regardless, stick around on HNHH for the latest news and updates on SZA and Jay Electronica.
