Joey Bada$$ and Wale agree on a theory.
Jay-Z's new album 4:44 has been all the talk for the better part of a week in the hip-hop industry, so it was only a matter of time before the conspiracy theories started to arise.
Joey Bada$$ has one such theory, which is that 4:44 is actually Jay's 4th Blueprint album.
I think I figured it out... 4:44 is the 4th Blueprint.— BADMON (@joeyBADASS) July 3, 2017
Wale chimed in with a Twitter reply to agree with this assertion, although he has a caveat to add to it.
I said the same thing . BUT bp all had upbeat/club shyt.. I feel like this is jayz gettin his "truthfully I Wan rap like common sense" on— Wale (@Wale) July 4, 2017
Other social media users voiced their opinions as well, which varied in their levels of credulity, but were all pretty interesting nonetheless.

4:44 became Hov's 13th platinum album earlier today (July 5th), with some special recognition being shared about him by the RIAA.
