It’s a shocker there is no Jay-z in his playlist, most people expected at least one Jay-z song on his two part playlist.  Jay-z might have a speed dial on POTUS but that doesn’t guarantee a spot on his playlist, I wonder what Jay has to say about this. And wait a minute after Michele bust a moved on uptown funk we definitely think it should have made the list too. This is the songs in his summer playlist.

Immediately President Obama gave us his Spotify playlist, Jay Z also shared what he’s listening to with his “Summer Sauce 2″ playlist, which he posted on TIDAL. Unlike the POTUS, the Roc Nation boss keeps it strictly hip-hop on the 20 tracks, which feature old school classics and new school hits.

Jay  shows he’s keeping up on what’s new with cuts from Travi$ Scott, 2 Chainz, and Future, while also paying homage greats like Eazy-E, UGK, and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony.

He acknowledges the Meek Mill and Drake beef with their controversy-starting collaboration “R.I.C.O.,” and caps it off with his own “Allure” off 2003’s The Black Album.

This is not Jay’s first TIDAL playlist. In June, he shared his “Fuck the Summer Up” playlist with selections from Nicki Minaj, The Weeknd, and Mrs. Carter.

Is Jay trying to hint at Mr. POTUS for forgetting something….
