JAY-Z‘s new 4:44 album is already receiving tons of praise from the music community, and it looks like hip-hop is happier than ever to have their hands on the project. Releasing his 13th studio album to Tidal three minutes before midnight last night (June 30), Hov has tons of big name rappers reacting to the project, including Kendrick Lamar, Earl Sweatshirt and more.

Tons of hip-hop stars are coming forward to share their thoughts on the album, with most sharing outstanding positive feedback as both longtime fans and close friends of the veteran Brooklyn rapper. While K. Dot called Hov a “master teacher,” and Earl Sweatshirt provided a funny dream scenario of what he thought the album would end up sounding like, other rappers such as Pusha T, Rick Ross, Talib Kweli, Fat Joe and many more also chime in on the viral 4:44 conversation.

Hov has been providing a lot of background into the album, which revealed a ton of different facts. While fans have been decoding the lyrics, which reveal his mother coming out as a lesbian, a set of bars allegedly dedicated to schooling Kanye West, and more, the Magna Carta MC also delivered some paragraphs that explain the stories behind each of the 10 tracks on the project.

Take a look at the reactions from the rap community in the social media posts below to see what hip-hop stars had to say.
