Two of the biggest names in the rap and hip-hop world have joined forces for a new release.

'Entrepreneur' sees Jay-Z team up with Pharrell Williams for a political statement that goes hand-in-hand with Pharrell's new TIME magazine cover package, dubbed 'The New American Revolution'.

The issue includes interviews and features with the likes of political activist Angela Davis, Tyler, the Creator and more, and covers a lot of the same ground as the song.

Pharrell said that the song tackles "how tough it is to be an entrepreneur in our country to begin with. Especially as someone of color, there’s a lot of systemic disadvantages and purposeful blockages.

"How can you get a fire started, or even the hope of an ember to start a fire, when you’re starting at disadvantages with regards to health care, education, and representation?”

The song's lyrics, meanwhile, sees Jay-Z take a potshot at Twitter with the line: "Black Twitter, what’s that? When Jack gets paid, do you?”
