When will he shut up? After being called out in “No Hook” off American Gangster, De-Haven gives another interview, surprise surprise.
Did you and Jay sell drugs together?No, he ain’t do much selling drugs. I did all that work. He was just a good dude to be around. He was one of my best friends. I taught him some things, but I mainly kept him from being out on the street a lot. Whatever was mine was his. So, we shared clothes, we shared a whole bunch of stuff. We had sex with the same women plenty of times. We both got burnt! We had the drip. My mom took him to the clinic. My mom also got him out of jail.
Does Jay exaggerate his drug-dealing in his songs?I’m telling you he overexaggerates. He was there to see things, but doing some big-time Frank Lucas–type thing? No. He nickled and dimed, but nothing on a major scale. He definitely didn’t sell nothin’ in Marcy. Spanish Jose, who he mentions a lot [in his songs], was a friend of mine. Jay didn’t have no affiliation to Spanish Jose.
When he talks about you on “No Hook,” is he accusing you of snitching?I think he’s talking about the way I went about this YouTube project [and not about snitching]. But he’s into subliminal messages, so [I think] he’s trying to get me hurt. That goes beyond disrespect. He’s getting my safety involved. I can’t believe my own daughter’s godfather is trying to get me hurt. But it won’t work. Being that I’ve been in prison a lot of times, a lot of people know my credibility. They know I went all the way to trial with my federal case, and I won.
Jadakiss is on Roc-A-Fella
In an interview with VH1, Jay-Z discussed changing Rocafella Records into what he will now call CARTER BOYS MUSIC. Jay stated he will make a moderate transition from Rocafella to CARTER BOYS MUSIC and CARTER BOYS MUSIC will soon be what the company and its brands would be associated with now including music, publishing, clothing, etc. If you look at the American Gangster cd booklet, the producers, publishing, and features state in bold CARTER BOYS MUSIC.
Dame is gunna be pissed
From American Gangster Tour, Chicago stop…
There have been a lot of gossip fodder going back and forth for a long time. I told you ‘Kiss was already signed to the Roc and Jay-Z made a statement that threw everything off. Well, here are the facts.
In Jay’s new video for “Roc Boys” Jadakiss unequivocally confirms that he is on the Roc Boys team. From what I have been bless to “hear” ‘Kiss joined the Roc-A-Fella Records team a little over a week ago.
DID I MENTION JADAKISS THROWS UP THE ROC SIGN IN THE NEW VIDEO FOR “ROC BOYS” BY MR. JAY-Z?
You might not believe me now, but unless there is some last second editing going on, Jadakiss is down with Roc-A-Fella, y’all.
The Roc is looking kinda strong right now!
BROOKLYN, N.Y. — “SEE, that’s Fort Greene right there, the projects, and I went to school right here — this is George Westinghouse,” says Jay-Z, looking through the window of his gray Rolls-Royce as it chauffeurs him into his past.
“Marcy Projects is about five minutes straight down,” he says, pointing east toward the housing development where he lived as a youth. “See that? That’s one thing I liked about going to school here,” he adds with a smile, indicating a road sign that reads “Jay St.”
Jay-Z, 37, doesn’t return often to this Brooklyn neighborhood, where he grew up as Shawn Corey Carter. Stardom and wealth have taken him away to a Manhattan home and the globe-trotting life of a hip-hop star and major-label record executive.
How did “Ignorant Shit” first come about?
Just Blaze: That was the first record we did for the Black Album. We did that on the road actually.
What made you flip the “Between the Sheets” song?
You know what—obviously we know that one year where it was used 80,000 times between Keith Murray, Da Brat, Biggie, Rob Base tried to do a comeback off of it, Lil Vicious—it was like million records that used that part and I always thought the other part was the ill break. But, it wasn’t the obvious part, everybody kept going for the same break. That’s kinda something that’s always been in the back of my mind.
Finally, the ever so mentioned, half leaked track is out in entirity. I guess it didnt make American Gangster. Either way, check it out now….
According to a statement on the Roc-A-Fella website, the five-city club tour that Jay-Z planned to support his American Gangster album sold out less than 60 seconds after tickets went on sale today. The site claims that the Philadelphia show sold out in 30 seconds, the Los Angeles show in 11 seconds, and the Chicago show in just 8 seconds. While other appearences are rumored in Washington, DC and Atlanta, details have yet to emerge. The scheduled show dates are as follows:
11/6 Los Angeles – The House of Blues
11/7 Chicago – The House of Blues
11/9 Baltimore – Ramshead Live
11/11 New York – The Hammerstein Ballroom
11/12 Philadelphia – The Fillmore
At 40/40 Club in NYC. Looks like this will be the next single off “American Gangsta”
UPDATE: This kid (Jay-Z’s nephew) will be playing a young version of Jay in the video!
