Jay Z's drug dealing partner had $100,000 by 17

Oct 14 2013, 3:34am CDT | by Bang Showbiz

Jay Z's former drug dealing partner says the pair managed to accumulate $100,000 by the age of 17.

De-Haven Irby, 44, and the rap star - real name Shawn Carter - grew up in Brooklyn, New York City, in the tough Marcy Houses housing project and his one-time best friend - who was also his neighbor - made money through a number of drug deals, in particular selling crack cocaine.

De-Haven told The Sun newspaper: "I got into selling drugs at 14. Jay wasn't getting on with school and he used to come at weekends.

"Then he moved in with me and my aunt and uncle and I told him, 'What's mine is yours'. We made a lot of money. We were 17 and I'd have $100,000 stuffed under the mattress."

The pair turned to crime in a bid to get rich quick and to escape their impoverished surroundings.

De-Haven explained: "Thankfully, I never had to kill anyone. Although now I realize we were killing people slowly with the drugs. We just wanted money, clothes, jewelry, cars, a way up."

De-Haven alleges his mother treated Jay - whose father abandoned his family when he was age 11, leaving him with his mother Gloria Carter and three siblings - like her own son but after the hip-hop star was catapulted into the spotlight following a string of hit records he forgot about the people in his past.

He added: "Does my mum not deserve a call on Mother's Day? This is the lady who I woke up at four in the morning saying, 'Mum, Jay's in trouble, we have got to get him out of jail.' He got caught with drugs in his pocket.

"When she went to go and get him she didn't say, 'That's my neighbor,' she said, 'I've come to get my son.' "

Jay Z is now believed to be worth a combined $1 billion with his wife Beyonce - with whom he has a 22-month-old daughter Blue Ivy.

Beyonce, Please Sashay Away

During one of the last shows of her and Jay-Z’s Stunt Queen Spectacular World Tour in Paris, Beyonce dropped her mic and kind of sort of forgot to keep lip-synching. If this was a lip-synch for your life, bitch would’ve committed lip-synch suicide. I’m sure the BumbleBeys will scream and say that she’s singing ...

Sep 16 2014 2:59pm CDT | Source: The Hollywood Gossip

Last night, CBS and the NFL nixed plans to use the song "Run This Town" for their broadcast intro to the Indianapolis Colts vs. Philadelphia Eagles game. Shortly thereafter, Rihanna ripped into CBS on Twitter, accusing the network of victimizing her and offering a terse response to their plans to use the planned intro for next week's game instead: "F--k you!"

Rihanna rips CBS for pulling 'Thursday Night Football' intro

Sep 16 2014 11:25am CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

When CBS pulled Rihanna’s intro to its inaugural broadcast of Thursday Night Football, it was generally accepted as a prudent, no-brainer move. Given the simmering Ray Rice controversy, beginning a broadcast with the frivolity of a pop song would have been tone-deaf. But there was at least one person who was unhappy with the decision:CBS you pulled my song last week, now you wanna slide it back in this Thursday? NO, Fuck you! Y'al ...

Rihanna Says “F**k You” To NFL For Pulling Her From Performance List

Sep 16 2014 10:38am CDT | Source: All HipHop

(AllHipHop News) A scheduled NFL pre-game performance of Jay Z and Rihanna was suddenly pulled in light of the sensational Ray Rice domestic violence case. The Trinidad-born singer has responded in a way only Rihanna can and she didn’t mince words. Rihanna was embroiled in her own domestic violence case with singer/then-lover Chris Brown, which seemed to have had some bearing on the decision. CBS you pulled my song last week, now you wanna slide it back in this Thu ...

The new TV Season has begun and Wendy Williams has started it off eating crow. Literally. The Talk Show Diva is keeping her word. Last year when she found out that Kim and Kanye were engaged, the first thing she said was that she’d eat crow if their marriage lasted longer than the 72 day mark previously set by Kim and Kris Humphries. In fact she talked a lot of Smack during that episode…in case you don’t remember. She was right about one thi ...
