Jay-Z mentor Jaz-O has cleared up recent statements he made about the rap mogul after media reports quoted him as calling Hov a closeted homosexual.
According to Jaz, footage of him labeling Jay as a gay man was edited and taken out of context.
"First off, I wanna make a statement, as far as Jay-Z, I never said he was a homosexual," Jaz promised in an interview. "Me being a heterosexual, I would never insult a man by calling him a homosexual you know, as far as that's concerned. I never witnessed any homosexual activity because if I did, come on, what would I be doing here, what am I doing? And third, I don't want anybody to ever get anything twisted, if you do see the video footage, I am not retracting any of my statements, first and foremost, and secondly I wanna apologize to DJ Vlad, I knew him for a long time and I know certain people in the industry, you know, certain people talk sh*t about Vlad but Vlad ain't never do anything to me and I wanna apologize because I was about to lawyer up. I didn't realize but then saw the people that actually shot the footage are the ones responsible for that heading and just took it a little too far. And best believe I'm gonna address that matter..."

Jaz's statements began to circulate online on numerous blogs earlier this month.
In the video, Jay's former friend goes on and on in a long ramble - and then he makes an OUTRAGEOUS claim - that Jay Z is a part of some kind of GAY SECRET SOCIETY. The interviewer asked Jay Z's former friend about whether he believed that Jigga was involved in a secret society. Jaz O responded: "The secret society with Jay Z...he's involved...but he's involved with this sh*t [sticks his finger in and out of his hand in the universal hand sign for f*cking]...he's involved in that play sh*t" Jaz then goes off on a bizarre rant about the Illuminati. But he ends it with the following, "The people that [Jay Z's] worshiping, that he's kissing their a** and letting them feel him up, they don't know sh*t." (Incandescent Rehabilitation)
The rap veteran recently weighed in on Beanie Sigel's publicized dispute with Jay-Z.
"Jay and Beans, yo, all that's eventual, all I gotta tell y'all is I told y'all in 2002 and y'all ain't believe me," Jaz said in an interview. "I told y'all that n*gga was a crab and y'all ain't believe me. How many accounts gotta come up? Dame [Dash], [Kareem] Biggs, R. Kelly, [Jada]kiss, Beans, I mean, the list go on. That n*gga's a crab, ain't no hate involved but you know, you gonna see. He still bites my style. Jaz-O is the best -- that n*gga's nothing. That's my son, unfortunately." (Dime Wars)
Jaz recruited a former friend of Jay's named Gunna to discredit the rap mogul's image earlier this year.
"Bubble lip Shawn," he says in the video. "He went from Buble lip Shawn to Jigga to Jay-Z, d*mn you on Jaz d*ck...He was a worker, he wasn't the dude...All the stuff you hearing on records, it's not true...For all y'all that don't know, homie wasn't that big time, drug dealer, gangsta motherf*cker that he talk about on them records. Dude was getting smacked up, robbed out in the hood, he was getting robbed. One time, I was locked up, some comrades stripped him up. I got the news and told homie he had to give him his sh*t back...We the truth, just ask the streets." (Hip Hop Beef)
