Did Future just send a message to Jay Z?
Following the release of Hov’s highly anticipated 4:44 album, many people suspect the hip-hop mogul of taking shots at the “Mask Off” rapper. Some pointed to lines that seemed to reference Future’s family, specifically how Ciara (the mother his child) is now in a relationship with Seattle Seahawks’ Russell Wilson:
“In the future, other niggas playin' football with your son/You had lost it, 13 bottles of Ace of Spade what it did to Boston”
Just days after the album dropped, Future shared a selfie on Snapchat that is believed to be a response to Jay. The photo features the rapper holding up a “money phone” with the words “U ain’t got the juice like dat. MOOD” written across the bottom.
For those who don’t know, “money phones” were also referenced in the 4:44 track “The Story of O.J.” In the song, Jay calls out rappers who try to flex on social media by holding up stacks to their ear and pretending to speak through it: “Y'all on the 'gram holdin' money to your ear," he raps. "There's a disconnect, we don't call that money over here."
Boosie Badazz claimed he was personally offended by the line, but it seems Future is using the lyrics to mock Jay.
Or if we want to look into even more, Future could be responding to a photo by ex-fiancée Ciara. Notice how Future uses the word "juice" and how Ciara uses it to describe her son ("Juicy Man").

Whatever mood Future is in, it's certainly directed towards someone.
