Jay-Z's new album 4:44 has been all the talk for the better part of a week in the hip-hop industry, so it was only a matter of time before the conspiracy theories started to arise.

Joey Bada$$ has one such theory, which is that 4:44 is actually Jay's 4th Blueprint album.

Wale chimed in with a Twitter reply to agree with this assertion, although he has a caveat to add to it.

Other social media users voiced their opinions as well, which varied in their levels of credulity, but were all pretty interesting nonetheless.
