Former Jay-Z affiliate Sauce Money recently gave his thoughts on past shots fired at Young Hov courtesy of Jaz-O and why, despite his veteran status, the Brooklyn rapper's mentor is two-faced.
In Sauce's perspective, Jaz-O is not the type of emcee artists should place their trust in.
"He's a piece of sh*t. Without getting too deep into it, he's kind of a two-faced kind of n*gga. He'll back-bite you about a n*gga, and then when he get with the n*gga, they do the same," Money said in an interview. "He just a type of individual, and I don't wish him no harm, but I don't wish him well, either. They don't know the type of n*gga that he is. F*ck him, man." (Forbez DVD)
Last year, Jaz put out a book and exposed Jay's early days in the drug game.
"He was like, 'I shot my brother,' " recalls Johnathan "Jaz-O" Burks in a new biography, "Empire State of Mind: How Jay-Z Went From Street Corner to Corner Office." "I was like, 'What the f--k did you shoot him for?' He's like, 'I told him to stop taking my stuff.' He said it was kind of an accident . . . but the situation got kind of crazy, and he just happened to hit him in the arm.'" He's done so well, many have forgotten he started as a street hustler from the grim Marcy Houses in Bedford-Stuyvesant who sold crack by the kilo, was nearly murdered by a rival and narrowly escaped jail after cops pulled him over when his car was loaded with cocaine. He later plunged a knife into the belly of a man he thought was stealing music profits from him. And yet, he never went to jail. The biography by journalist Zack O'Malley Greenburg, out this month, provides a colorful reminder of the rapper's dark roots. (New York Post)
In 2009, Jaz recruited a former friend of Jay's named Gunna to discredit the rap mogul's image.
"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)
Around May 2009, Jaz opened up about his issues with Young Hov.
"I got a few joints here and there, taking shots at your boy, [Jay-Z]," Jaz explained in an interview. "But you know, that's hip-hop. I ain't taking it no where further than that, I ain't taking the guns out or none of that sh*t. I try to keep people from calling it a beef, it's not really a beef. I'm not really paying much attention to dude, first of all. Secondly, it's not a violent thing. So you know, I gotta make my move, I gotta extend my platform...The sh*t is kinda personal, but I keep it where it's supposed to be for the industry and the business...I'm not really hearing responses and like I said, I'm not being on the violent sh*t...I can only go in on facts, sh*t that's real. N*ggas ain't built a certain way but they make the world think that they are." (Vlad TV)
