EXCLUSIVE: Calvin Klein Bacote Explains Jay Z's Reaction After Being Arrested + MORE (VIDEO)

(AllHipHop News) When Jay Z uttered that he “never felt more alive than riding shot gun in Klein’s Green 5”on The Black Album, he was speaking about Calvin Klein Bacote’s car. In the first part of AllHipHop’s EXCLUSIVE interview with Bacote, he explains Jay Z’s reaction when the two of them were arrested.

At the end of the “Allure” lyric, Jay Z states he never felt more alive “till the cops pulled guns”, seemingly in reference to the pair being arrested following a fight at a party. The pair were charged with attempted murder, attempted murder to maim, battery assault, and possession of a deadly weapon and according to Klein, Jay Z took the arrest well and changed his life from it:

Our reaction were the same: we got caught. But, he channeled that situation into something positive and productive. Only thing I’m doing now at this point took me a long time for me to get it, but now I got it. So, I’m kind of following the footsteps of those same words and my sense of creating myself and just doing the right things this time around.

According to Bacote, before taking the wrap for the crime, him and Jay Z faced 40 years in prison. Bacote was released after four years and released his first book Neighborhoods Under Siege: Memoirs of a Brooklyn Don this past February.

    These grammatical errors have to stop…I mean c’mon man!!!

    • Jared

      Smh it’s crazy

    • RightOn

      Naw it’s OK. They can get away with it because we’re ignorant and don’t deserve better. That is why it’s more credible when a white media outlet writes on our hip hop. Although they know jack about HH, you can tell they actually care about their credibility and quality of whatever they write.

  • Sean Taylor

    “The pair were charged with charged with attempted murder”

    say wha?

  • Reblogged this on Jessie Spencer's Blogspot.

  • Jared

    I know you can do better? Did you pass senior English in high school? I can’t even trust the “4 years” in regards to his time locked up because that’s probably an error too smh.

  • InTheNightKitchen

    Wasn’t homeboy trying to assassinate J’s character not to long ago?

    Allure is one of my favorites by the way, bump that definitely every month.

    • slayboogie

      nah that was dehaven

      • Jared

        Nah he did too I remember

      • cromthelaughinggod7

        Na he threw J under the bus for not helping him when he got out. You didn’t see the interview check it out. Jay spoke about him on Allure.

      • TheOnlyCoop

        Naw he did too, but he’s a lot more humble now. Almost giving Jay a hustlers stamp, and saying how J was willing to put up $10,000,000 to help him out.

      • Nut he refused the 10 mil?

        Yeah right!

      • TheOnlyCoop

        And he got mad because Jay said “make the next deal make sense”

      • So he would have taken the 10 mil if Jay had said:
        “Do something stupid with it & make sure you have nothing left to show for it?”

        10 Mill for attempt?

        Whoever pressing charges taking that 1mil & walking…, running away with it!

        >>In Victim’s voice:
        “Thank you Mr. Klien! I will be in the back of Fat burgers, on July 4th, at midnight, if you would like to shoot me again!”

  • I think the articles are outsourced to a continent where English is not their first language.

      • Fugg it!

        I’ll hollla!

  • Montezuma1

    Man this shyt is 50yrs old. Get your paper. This is why people admire fake rap G’s instead of the so-called real ones. Why is this guy on a hip hop website? What is he selling? Who the hell is he?! I mean I know who he is but why do I even know him?

    • My $$$ says you either know him personally….or know someone who does.

      • Montezuma1

        Hahaha because you THINK you know who I am. I don’t know him. He used to be in Queens back in the day over in Woodside. He’s nothing special. A million dudes like him in NYC. If not for Jay Z who would know him? Who would care? Dude gotta get his grown man on and stop drinking his own kool-aid. He tried the credit card scam and got jammed. He ain’t trying to do no time. If you haven’t pulled it off by 50 it’s time to pass the baton and coach your kids. Tough pill to swallow for some. They’re not called old school fools for nothing.

      • Yeah, but….you didn’t deny knowing someone who did / does know him!

        >>PayPal my chipperz!

        On Topic:

        It’s always time to coach the kids, but Jay is about the best target to hate on, if one is going to hate.
        Beyounce, Samsung, Def jam Prez, etc…..
        (Excellent reasons to hate, IMHO)

        Jay stays winning, so this is just another win for him & another L for Calvin…..I guess picking Klien was his 1st L?

      • ll3acdafukup

        We know its you (*****-****). ain’t no thinking about it.. Aint that right

      • >>Chokes on AM Beer

      • ll3acdafukup

      • * No Comment *


      • Edit that name out, #IJS

      • ll3acdafukup

        >> In Denzel’s Training day voice:

        “My Ni99aaaahhh!”


      • EL_BARK


      • ll3acdafukup

        El why you shaking your head?.. You know its him try and deny that he has never posted in here I know better or you wouldn’t be trying to run damage control LMFAO

      • EL_BARK

        What make u say its him, i dont see or know how u pulled that name out if thin air,
        Can u explain. I dont care who he is one way or another.

      • ll3acdafukup

        It’s all good I don’t know you … You don’t know me and you don’t know who I know but on the strength of Edog I’ll edit my post call me a bltch for doing it… Its whatever I’m good with me
        But when you come here and drop stories that no one else knows unless you there its real easy to connect the dots (yea he talks too much)… Some things shouldn’t be said on here no matter what you know.

      • EL_BARK

        That solid homie.
        But its a small world. Might have rub shoulders with some of the same folks. Lol
        Real recongnize real though.

      • Mec-One

        Coming from the guy who acts as if he knows 50 so well like they grew up together ……. smh

      • Actually, I’m pretty sure Monte’ knows 50 too!

    It’s good to see homie finally let that hate he had for Jay Z. That type of shit aint healthy. When you reach a certain status you can’t bring all them niggas you was hangin on the corner especially if they still goin to jail and all that dumb shit. That’s just real.

  • Jamel Williams

    He never had hate he just didn’t like the idea of not being treated like a man people need to know what’s hate and the meaning of character.

  • The_Good_Life

    At the time when these dudes were active, the laws and technology that’s out now wasn’t around. Columbine mass shooting and snitching is the new wave.

  • Tyfromthechi

    I still no one cosigned officer Ricky street past lol this has nothing to do with him I just like when people verify rappers past in the streets lol
