A close friend of rap star Jay-Z

who witnessed his alleged stabbing of Lance (Un) Rivera, head

of Untertainment Records, at the Kit Kat Klub in New York last

Wednesday describes what he saw in the current issue of Newsweek.

``Jay-Z approached him, they had a few words, they became loud,

and then this big commotion began. One guy I couldn't see hit

Un with a bottle and then Jay-Z pushed something in his back and

in his stomach, and Un began to sort of bend over and people started

yelling.'' By the time the police showed up, Jay-Z was gone, reports
