Sleeping every night next to Mona Lisa
The modern day version with better features
The Mona Lisa is one of the most famous paintings in history of art. It was painted by Leonardo, and it’s now exposed at the Louvre.
And no, Hova isn’t sleeping on the floor of the Louvre next to the painting!
The Mona Lisa he talks about is Beyoncè, his wife and mother of his baby. She might not be the actual Mona Lisa… But it comes close!
This is not the first Beyonce/Picasso/Mona Lisa comparison. Jay said in “That’s My Bitch”:
Uh, Picasso was alive he woulda made her
That’s right nigga Mona Lisa can’t fade her
Feature could also be seen in a musical term, she often features on Jay-Z tracks (Part II on MCHG and Bonnie and Clyde on Blueprint 2 to name a few). The fact that these features are better could be a shot at Foxy Brown, former music partner of Hova, who accused him of rape in the last weeks.
