When Jay Z was born, they swore he was never going to be sh*t so he had to make moves like Olajuwon and he started selling dimes and nicks before, eventually, graduating to a brick. This isn’t a secret. In fact, I literally took this piece of information from “My First Song.”
So, yeah, Jay Z used to sell drugs, but it’s been a mighty, mighty long time since he brought your auntie a couple bags or fronted your uncle a couple halves. Since his drug-peddling days, the Brooklyn hustler has gone on to become the greatest rapper of all time (idc idc idc), a mogul and a philanthropist. But apparently, none of that matters because he’s still just Jay Z, Beyonce’s drug-dealing husband. Hov’s not stunting it though.
After conservative The Blaze TV host Tomi Lahren tried to use Jay’s past against him earlier this week in a ridiculous rant about Beyonce’s Super Bowl 50 performance “perpetuating the great battle of the races,” Jay was spotted laughing off Taxstone’s reference to Lahren’s comments. “I’m with the drug dealer of 14 years,” the podcaster says in the Instagram clip. “14-year drug dealer, right?” before Jay breaks out into his famous laugh.
Lahren told Beyonce she needed to get her sh** together before getting all #BlackLivesMatters on folks. “Your husband was a drug dealer. For fourteen years, he sold crack cocaine,” she said on her program. “Talk about protecting black neighborhoods? Start at home.”
