EXCLUSIVE: Calvin Klein Bacote Explains If Jay Z Was "Still Spending Money From '88" + MORE (VIDEO)

(AllHipHop News) Jay Z is currently worth over half a billion dollars and a year before his debut album claimed he was “still spending money from ’88”. In the last part of AllHipHop’s EXCLUSIVE interview with Calvin Klein Bacote, the former Jay Z associate speaks on if the famous lyric was true.

Bacote and Jay Z first entered each other’s lives after Klein returned home from prison back in 1986. According to Klein, from his dealings with Jay Z, him spending money from his drug dealing past of the late 80s in 1995 is not far-fetched:

Would you doubt him? I wouldn’t doubt him. I don’ tknow how many shoe boxes he got stacked up. I know how many I had stacked up. If he said it, I believe it. You have to kind of look at his history. How many times have you caught him in a lie? You have to give him the benefit of the doubt.

Bacote stated that he kept up with the 90s Hip Hop albums even during his incarceration and also picks who is the best rapper of all time.

Check out the rest of ALLHIPHOP’s final interview with Calvin Klein Bacote below:

    • U boys that wasn’t round in that era will never understand. Yall boys will never understand the era, it’s really simple so I will put it in layman’s terms. I watched my neighborhood go from us being able to leave our doors unlocked as a kid, to the intro of crack, to living in a hell of a warzone of a neighborhood in the roughest hoods in st. Louis due to crack. I also witnessed my father having stacks of shoeboxes full of cash also during that time just like kevin was tombout. Do you undertsand what it takes to rule one block of real estate in a warzone? Additionally, the truth of the matter is that they asked bruh the question during the interview, he chose to give u a rather honest answer. I think he did good. I didn’t watch the other vids either so….

      • Chinx Pyp

        it is simple so u didnt have to put in laymans terms @disqus_R3gSW8ACP5:disqus……so y u even takin it personal to even comment… what? u think ya hood was the only nigguhs gettin money …smh @ nigguhs like u who b tryna school nigguhs… and.dont tell me bout ya pops.. what were u doin….if anything let ya pops comment..its my opinion……its 2014 my nigguh.. an RESPECT to the OG’s.but who #givesafuck. bout if he still got bread from 88 . nigguhs actin like they breakin bread wit dis nigguh makin da vid and even if u was who cares !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!….rns

    Yall let Jay talk, now let this brotha say what he gotta say. No sense of yall pulling on Jay nut sack. He can talk and say whatever he wants to say about Jay. Why??? Cause he actually knows him. Unlike some of you lames typing wack ish all day like yall broke bread with Hov. This man aint no fluke. He a real street dude. Let the brotha speak. IJS.

    • Thank you my good sir…4 real

  • Seems like a lot of people don’t like this dude for sum reason. Mainly because he talking bout the past of Jay z or sumn. I only watched this one video and I think dude answered all the questions the way he should have. I’m judging on this video and not the others in the series of interviews because I wasn’t checkn. While waiting on the game to come on I got bored and came here. I wanna know why cats hating on him about an interview where he is supposed to answer questions. On this one he seemed solid to me, didnt down talk the homie or nutn. Most of yall gon say he needs money or sumn but I can tell bruh not worried. If bruh had paper back then and has the true hustlers spirit it ain’t nutn to not care about paper no more once u get ya mind around that it is actually physically just PAPER…AND WE DO WICKED SHIT TO GET IT.

  • Clondyke Classic

    Why the fucc should anybody give a fucc what this nigga has to say? This nigga haven’t spit one bar or brought no talent to the game. This nigga only claim to fame is he USED to sell dope and he USED to be around Jay Z. Fucc this nigga cuh.

  • DLOUPO

    If jay was still spending money from 88 why they needed Kareem Biggs

    • 86Jordan

      To share the risk of the investment, It wasn’t a given fact he would blow, it’s better to use someone else’s money when risk is involved with an investment.

      • SBRon

        Yep! It’s called leverage…

      • DLOUPO

        To share the risk in the investment lol y’all niggas believe anything jay showed you when his money got right he cut loose dame and Biggs to get all the money now if u spending money from 88 u saying u have a lot it would of took jay just a small investment to start rocafella it only took master p 10gs to start no limit so for jay who getting so much doe what’s a small investment when u talkn about jay life, smh to share the risk lol

  • Reefer Sutherland

    It’s funny seeing these clowns in the comments complaining about this dude like he’s downing jay. He’s a close and personal friend of Jigga and at one point was someone he looked up to. Stupid clowns haven’t even watched the video and are act like this is the 2nd coming of dehaven. Get Jay-z’s nut out ya eye and watch the video first before you comment.

  • slumlord_vinny

    the comments oh the comments. can’t believe any civilized black man would ever disrespect Lord Jamar. you must be asking for a beatdown
