LONDON, ENGLAND - OCTOBER 06: Producer Shawn Carter AKA Jay-Z attends "The Harder They Fall" World Premiere during the 65th BFI London Film Festival at The Royal Festival Hall on October 06, 2021 in London, England.

Following Arby's and Pusha T's diss track to McDonald’s, fans are wondering if Pusha’s made a reference to Jay-Z’s Blueprint cut “U Don’t Know.” In the “Spicy Fish Diss Track,” Push raps, “I could sell water to a whale,” directly referencing “U Don’t Know.” In the lyric video, Push says “whale” but it was making fans wonder if Jay-Z originally said, “I’m a hustler baby, I sell water to a whale,” or “sell water to a well.”

Hip-hop journalist Sowmya Krishnamurthy reached out to Just Blaze who produced “U Don’t Know” for some clarification on the lyrics.

“Haaaa!!!! Well/whale,” said Jay, in a text from Blaze. “It’s never a coincidence when these things happen. I try to make things work on multiple levels every time I sit down to create. It keeps me engaged.”
