Jay-Z Faces Criticism As "Ex-Crack Dealer" Following Meeting With Governor Cuomo

While many praised Jay-Z‘s recent sit down with New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo as the emcee pushed for police reform in the wake of the Eric Garner and Michael Brown verdicts; there were others not so impressed, as Fox News and the New York Post came under fire for referring to the Hip Mogul as an “admitted ex-crack dealer” after running a headline titled ““Andrew Cuomo Meets With Admitted Former Crack Dealer.”

Refusing to acknowledge the immense strides in his career or charitable contributions, neither publication has offered an apology for the offensive titles; to date, Hov has not released a statement regarding the controversy.
