Fact Check

Did Jay Z and Kanye West predict covid 19?

No. There is no Jay Z and Kanye West’s covid song that predicted the pandemic way back in 2011. The claimed video has been altered to spread disinformation.

Earlier, THIP MEDIA found a social media post claiming Captain America movie foretells covid. Now social media users are searching for Jay Z and Kanye West’s covid song. We searched and found Jay Z and Kanye West’s covid song lyrics nowhere mention covid 19 pandemic.

The original song titled ‘Ni**as In Paris (Explicit)’ is available on YouTube.

We also searched online to find the original TikTok video that is getting traction on Facebook. Through an advanced keyword search, we found the video. However, the link does not open as India continues to ban TikTok.
