Pharrell Williams Addresses Racial Inequality in New Single "ENTREPRENEUR" With Jay-Z

The rapper references Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey in his verse.

Continuing his adidas partnership and debuting a new Netflix docuseries later this year, Pharrell Williams has now unveiled his latest single featuring Jay-Z. Titled “ENTREPRENEUR,” the new track addresses racial inequality in the United States.

“I am Black ambition/I am always whispering/They keep telling me I will not/But my will won’t listen/Gravity on a Black man/With everything on his back and his family and passion/If the doors ain’t crackin’,” the new tune begins. First announced via Instagram, “ENTREPRENEUR” emphasizes racial injustice in the country: “In this position with no choice/A system imprison young Black boys/Distract with white noise/The brainwashed become hype boys.”

Further into the track, Jay-Z jumps in with a powerful rap verse that references Twitter‘s CEO Jack Dorsey: “Black Twitter, what’s that? When Jack gets paid, do you? For every one Gucci, support two FUBU‘s.” The rapper also encourages Black-owned businesses: “Sipping crip-a-Cola consumer and an owner, till we all vertically integrated from the floor up.” The song continues on with Pharrell’s chorus repeatedly chanting “Black man.”
