Jay-Z vs Nas - What Really Happened


The feud between Nas and JAY-Z was a gladiatorial battle between two rap titans. They started off with subliminal jabs and moved up to body sh*ts. Fans cheered on. Crews got in the mix. Digs got so personal that parents had to step in. Thankfully, the battle didn't end in tragedy like Biggie vs. 2Pac. It ended in triumph. And friendship. JAY-Z and Nas would later shake hands and join forces.

Carmen Bryan opened up to VladTV in an exclusive interview about being at the center of Jay Z and Nas' legendary beef. She explained that after breaking up with and moving away from Nas, she started dating Jay Z after first becoming friends.

During the conversation, Carmen shut down rumors that Memphis Bleek started the beef, as she said she feels bad for Bleek and blames Jay Z for ending his career. Carmen also revealed that she confronted both Jay Z and Nas about the beef.

How a Hustler From Brooklyn Became a Billionaire

 


Jay-Z has long been known as one of the greatest rappers of all time, but now he’s known even more for his business acumen and massive wealth. Forbes recently named him Hip-Hop’s first billionaire, and with his diverse portfolio of investments, business ventures, and personal assets, it’s not hard to believe.


Despite the fact that it may seem like Jay-Z earned all of his wealth overnight, it was actually a long process that was decades in the making. Many people know the man, but few know the story.

What NFL Team Is Jay-Z Buying? And Why Is Everyone Mad?


I'm seeing a'lot of bad talk around Jay-Z purchasing a NFL team of his own. People have been talking bad since Colin Kaepernick did not get mentioned to the point it would reinstate him.

In my eyes, If Jay-Z owns the team, that could mean he is calling shots right? So that mean he has the opportunity to give Colin Kaepernick another round at stardom.

JAY-Z is going to buy a “significant ownership interest” in an NFL team at some point in the “near future,” with an unnamed source saying that he wants to “continue to be a change agent for the NFL.”

JAY-Z won’t be able to manage players as an owner, since he is “not an NFL agent and does not take part in the operations of the NFL players in Roc Nation.”

Jay-Z previously had to sell his stake in the Brooklyn Nets NBA team because it conflicted with his work in Roc Nation’s sports management division. Also, once this deal happens, it will make JAY-Z the first Black team owner in NFL history.

The other big wrinkle here is that we don’t know which team JAY-Z is about to procure a “significant ownership interest” in.

Also, Cardi B is correct, Jay-Z does have the power to bring Colin back if the deal goes through. Jay-Z only said were done went pass the kneeling, he did not say that the player chances were taken away. Colin responding like he is is bad, and i believe if Jay does not bring him back is because of any problems that are being caused.

Jay-Z or 50 Cent?

 


Another round of Celebrity Match Up's is back. This time they hit these scene with New York rappers Jay-Z of Roc Nation and 50 Cent of G-Unit.


Both rappers has made there mark in the industry. 50 Cent recently released his book, Hustle Harder, Hustle Smarter, in which the rapper speaks on the alleged rift between JAY-Z and Kanye West and why he believes Hov has become "disappointed" with his friend Ye. 50 Cent says his relationship with Jay-Z is purely ''business'' and insists the pair will never be friends.


50 and Jay-Z were involved in a rap ‘beef’ with each other in early 2009, but while neither has said anything publicly to settle their differences, they met backstage when Jay-Z played a huge concert with 50’s mentor, Eminem, at Detroit’s Comerica Park last year, although 50 refuses to say what happened between them.

#MusicVideosWeLove Jay-Z - Hard Knock Life


Need a ghetto anthem to play at that family gathering? Then Jay-Z's 'Hard Knock Life' is the one to play. Hard Knock Life is the third studio album by American rapper Jay-Z. It was released on September 29, 1998, by Roc-A-Fella Records and Def Jam Records.

The song that made Jay-Z a superstar. Famously sampling “It’s a Hard Knock Life” from the Annie movie. Jay-Z raps about his rags-to-riches story. Jay-Z transposes this into a song about how he overcame life in the ghetto to achieve massive success.

How Jay-Z created a hip-hop path to luxury

 



This past Monday, rapper Jay-Z unveiled a deal with LVMH to expand his Armand de Brignac champagne globally. The next day, Oatly, the Swedish vegan-milk group in which he has invested, took its first step towards a $10bn initial public offering.


Jay-Z has further tasks to occupy him, apart from his own music. He still heads Roc Nation, a music and sports talent agency that includes Rihanna among its clients. He is also “chief visionary officer” of a special-purpose company backed by Roc Nation that acquired two Californian cannabis groups in November. And so on.


This year is the 25th anniversary of Jay-Z’s first album Reasonable Doubt, released on his own Roc-A-Fella Records label. Some have lasted and some not, but Jay-Z was ahead of his time in business in a way that is only now clear. “Put me anywhere on God’s green Earth, I triple my worth,” he once rapped. The deal with LVMH, under which the world’s leading luxury group has taken 50 per cent of Armand de Brignac — the “Ace of Spades” champagne praised in his lyrics — is proof of that.

Tupac vs Jay-Z - What Really Happened


Tupac didn’t have as big a feud with Jay Z as he did with The Notorious B.I.G., but the two were definitely at odds at one point.

2Pac's beef with JAY-Z started after 2Pac heard the rumor that JAY-Z was dissing the West Coast. After 2Pac recorded his verses for "Hit 'Em Up" he added a message at the end of the song.
He was dissing JAY-Z before he took it off the record.

2Pac wanted to hear JAY-Z' album "Reasonable Doubt" before he decided to diss him.

Beyoncé Wins Trademark Battle Over Blue Ivy's Name.


The Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB) had no time for the efforts of a Massachusetts wedding planner to block Beyoncé in her quest to secure intellectual property rights. In a little-noticed ruling one week ago, Beyoncé won her ongoing trademark battle over her daughter’s name.

For years, Beyoncé has attempted to trademark her daughter’s name, Blue Ivy Carter. She’s filed applications that cover everything from books to pacifiers to shampoo to video games and much more. The problem, though, is that wedding planner Veronica Morales called her business “Blue Ivy Events” – even before Beyoncé’s daughter was born.

Jay-Z Charts His 100th Song On The Hot 100


Jay-Z lands yet another minor hit, and though the song probably won’t stick around for very long, it’s become a very important one for the rapper.

“Mood 4 Eva” marks Jay-Z’s one hundredth solo Hot 100 appearance under that moniker, which is something only a few musical acts have ever managed. In fact, the rapper is now just the sixth musician to appear on the all-genre songs ranking 100 times.

The mogul has now charted 100 songs as Jay-Z, but that doesn’t tell the whole story. Including the work he did as one-half of musical duo The Carters (which was a project with his wife Beyoncé), the rapper reached triple-digit placements a little while ago, as that group sent five songs onto the ranking. That means that Shawn Carter (Jay-Z’s real name) claims 105 Hot 100 hits, but as Jay-Z, he’s just made it to 100.

Will Kanye West Surpass Jay-Z?


For the better part of hip-hop’s existence, it was solely considered a genre of music. We now recognize the larger cultural movement surrounding the New York-bred art form as a leading force driving growth in fashion, entertainment, food and beverage, and technology. As a result, the top 10 highest earners of 2019 on Forbes’ annual list of hip-hop’s richest account for a staggering $633,500,000 in combined earnings. And for the first time in his career, Kanye West ($150 million) has outpaced the rest of his competitors to take the top spot — leapfrogging JAY-Z by $69 million.

It was certainly a banner year for West, especially considering he claimed to be $56 million in debt just over three years ago. While earning the top spot is certainly noteworthy, his income jumped dramatically between 2018 and 2019, accounting for a net increase of $122,500,000. Although the entire industry had a great year — with the top 20 acts’ revenue increasing by 33 percent since 2018 — the huge financial increase poses an interesting question: with an album on the way, YEEZY accounting for $1.5 billion in annual sales, and a track record of exploring radical projects, will Kanye West be joining JAY-Z in the billionaire’s club?

Jay-Z Net Worth Is $1 Billion In 2020


Jay-Z’s fortune holds flat at $1 billion nearly a year after Forbes first crowned him hip-hop’s first billionaire. He boasts an expansive kingdom encompassing spirits (his Armand de Brignac champagne and D’Ussé cognac), art (including work by Jean-Michel Basquiat), real estate (homes in Los Angeles, the Hamptons, Tribeca) and stakes in companies from Uber to Robinhood.

Jay-Z’s latest banner year of earnings ($81 million in 2019, good for No. 20 on our Celebrity 100) offset more recent declines across the market, helping to keep him on our list of Billionaires. And though the coronavirus has impacted the value of his holdings from ride-sharing to real estate, many of Jay-Z’s core assets are in areas well-positioned to weather the downturn.

Jay Z Splits From Longtime Business Partner

Jay Z has ended his partnership with John Meneilly, a man he once called his ‘consigliere.’
On to the next one. Jay Z and Solange Knowles may have (publicly at least) squashed whatever beef led to their now-infamous elevator brawl, but Hova and his longtime business manager are over.

Music industry insiders exclusively tell Confidenti@l that Jay Z has cut ties with John Meneilly, who helped build the “Empire State” rapper’s empire. Music industry insiders tell Confidenti@l that news of Meneilly’s departure started making the rounds shortly before Memorial Day weekend.

The former Provident Financial executive is largely credited with navigating the rise of the Rocawear clothing line, which Jay Z sold off for $200 million in 2007 while maintaining marketing and licensing rights. Meneilly is also credited as one of the architects behind Jay Z’s huge deal with Samsung last year, which instantly moved a million copies of the rapper’s “Magna Carta Holy Grail.” Meneilly was also a chief player at Roc Nation, which has grown from a record label to a talent management group that reps Yankee CC Sabathia and former Bronx Bomber Robinson Cano.

The “99 Problems” rapper is having a rough couple of weeks for sure. In addition to a surveillance video that went public of his sister-in-law pummeling him after the Met Ball gala in mid-May, photos of Jay and Bey sufaced in the Hamptons last weekend while his “Watch the Throne” collaborator Kanye West was marrying Kim Kardashian in Europe. Jay Z is also being sued for $7 million by an artist who says the rapper ripped off his Roc-A-Fella records logo design in 1995. Jay Z’s legal team is trying to postpone that case while Mr. and Mrs. Carter are on tour this summer.

Would You Like To See A Nas And Jay-Z Collaborate Again?

 


The history of Jay-Z and Nas beef will be talked about for years to come. It seems like it was just yesterday when Nas and Jay-Z were involved in the what some may call the greatest Hip-Hop battle of all time.


It seems that Jay-Z and Nas have put all of that behind them. In 2006, Nas was good enough for Jay-Z to sign him to a $3 Million dollar record deal. Even Fat Joe and Jim Jones have a long-standing history with JAY-Z, having beefed with him in the early 2000s.


Until we hear otherwise, let's look at past Jay-Z and Nas collaborations and beef and talk in today's terms. What if they were to collaborate again in the near future. Do you think they would produce there best work yet? Or do you feel it would only end up as it did the first time?
