(AllHipHop News) Jay Z once said “while y’all record, I recall” and yesterday (Thursday) radio personality Star revealed an old tale of Jay Z pre-fame days. On his Shot97 Radio show, Star reveals that Jay Z once sold him cocaine to him back in the 80s.
Star states he’s “not trying to play Jay Z out” by revealing these stories about Jay Z drug past. According to Star, the man with 13 #1 album had a quality product in the 80s, but competition was stiff:
Back in the late ‘80s, I went to this man on a few occasions, hand-to-hand. He had the good sh*t. Now his sh*t wasn’t as popping as the West Indians over in the 90s and in Flatbush. Them Shower Posse n*ggas must have had that shit shipped in from Columbia or some f*ckin’ where.
Star does say Jay Z was a generous drug dealer “extended credit to a coke head in the wee hours” when Star was short on payment.
Jay Z has attributed his present business acumen that has helped him amass a reported net worth of $550 million to his drug dealing skills. In his Vanity Fair cover story back in October 2013 Jay Z spoke on this connection:
I know about budgets. I was a drug dealer. To be in a drug deal, you need to know what you can spend, what you need to re-up.
