STAR: Jay Z Sold Me Cocaine Multiple Times

On his radio show, STAR says that Jay Z sold him cocaine several times in the late 1980s.

Jay Z has long been rapping about selling drugs. Now one of the Brooklyn, New York rapper's self-proclaimed cocaine customers has come forward.

“Back in the late ‘80s, I went to this man on a few occasions, hand-to-hand,” STAR says regarding Jay Z on his Shot97 Radio show. "He had the good shit. Now his shit wasn’t as popping as the West Indians over in the 90s and in Flatbush. Them Shower Posse niggas must have had that shit shipped in from Columbia or some fuckin’ where."

Given that he was a regular customer, STAR says that Jay Z also accommodated him on occasion.

“When my money wasn’t right,” STAR says, "he extended credit to a coke head in the wee hours.” 

This type of business practice coincides with Jay Z’s lyrics about his drug dealing practices on “Izzo (H.O.V.A.).” On the song, which was included on his 2001 album, The Blueprint, Jay Z raps in the first verse, “Was herbin’ ‘em in the home of Terrapins / Got it dirt cheap for them / Plus if they they were short with cheese, I would work with them.” 

Even though he’s coming forward with these stories more than 20 years after he says they took place, STAR says he wanted to silence the people who question whether or not he really knows Jay Z.

“You ain’t talking to some silly nigga who’s trying to play Jay Z out,” STAR says. "He no longer a drug dealer. I’m no longer a coke head.”

STAR's video and Jay Z's "Izzo (H.O.V.A.)" are as follows:

    Who cares. Star does more to damage himself with this. First off he's a snitch and second off all he's a drug addict. Would you rather be the dealer or the addict?

    I just find it hilarious how everyone comments like they know Jay or star personally or the people they're around or where they came from. Most of you sound like women trying to vouch for people you don't even know based on hearsay and interviews and youtube clips of people who were around them. F all that. Now one thing for sure star wasn't lying when he said the coke game was heavy back then in flatbush and the 90s on the east side of things. That's fact.

      He also went strapped to see Jay after a show cause Jay said he would never do an interview with him, needless to say Jay ran faster than Usain Bolt that day. Later on Hov got on that Miss You track and some shit like "cause of your (Aaliyah) honor, I won't bring it to pistols" lol

    So what? Jay-Z probably gave this fool a "Fuck Nigga Price" because he was a coke head. So what? Even these rich, spoilt suburb kids who have never been to the hood sell cocaine and weed. Is this suppose to make us respect Jay even more? GTFOH. let me know he was on some Frank Lucas shit shipping that ish from VIETNAM or Columbia maybe u did get my attention. I m tried of rappers who were dime bags sellers rapping like they were moving that ish like Frank Lucas. No!!! Jay sold dime bags to his hommies(probably the excess from his own use) and Fuck Idiots like Star. He was no Drug Dealer. He just sold dime bags. I believe they are called "street legs". The real drug dealer is the dude who shipped that isht from overseas and the dude who sold it to Jay. I am an Adidas fan to the core i collect n buy that isht to my last $$$$. Once in awhile i sell the ones i dont like no more to my hommies or on E-bay, does that make me a Sports shoe Retailer? hell NO! DUMMIES.

      I know for a fact Mobb & Jay got their hands dirty in the streets. Yes some exaggerate but if you're sitting back thinking you're not a dealer unless you're a kingpin, then think about the people doing time for a couple vials or a half ounce. Don't be silly. And get it out of your minds that everybody is lying/exaggerating. The game is ruthless, make a lot of you run home to your momma, scared to come back outside.

      Being short don't mean shit when you use guns. Mobb Deep been rapping since they were in high school but its not like they from the burbs like Rick Ross. They were in the hood sticking niggas up. Hav's brother caught a bunch of bodies before he took his own life.

      Prodigy is 5'6" Jus Sayin.. n Who Said You Can't Be Gangster if you're short... Also, Hov doesn't come from an easy neighbourhood, selling crack is putting you're life at risk on the daily as expressed in his book Decoded n Many of his songs... But I do agree with 'Slick Rick'.. Great storytellers exaggerate..

    • Slick Rick

      All the greatest storytellers tend to exaggerate, my man. Nas with that whole Escobar persona, Mobb Deep with that gangsta persona(them niggas is only 5'3, by the way), Biggie Smalls and his alter ego, Frank White, hell even Kool G Rap.

    Today for Ross: He's enjoying his no.1 hit, all without having to crossover for major hits. Today for Jay Z" He's fallen the fuck off, having to turn to gimmicks like collaborating with pop stars and paying samsung to take a million of their copies. He even had to beg for a feature from ross for relevancy. That's to keep him from suffering like 50.

      In Jay's defence.. Who stays relevant after this long, it ain't easy... Shoutout to Nas, another great lyricist still doin his thing... Shoutout to both legends while i'm at it

    • Whatchutalkinbout

      Magna Carta Holy Grail seems worse than it actually is cause of the hype. From a Jay-Z album people expect greatness and he's fallen somewhat flat with releases like Blueprint 3 and Magna Carta Holy Grail. Even Jay's not so phenomenal albums still beat out Rick Ross' works though. Mastermind isn't all that. Less than half of it is worth bumping again.

  • rjaey

    yeah,but, didn't jay-z diss that nigga star jones on that aaliyah's "miss you" remix track? i know he did because i had that single since late 2002...

    Time to end this G.O.A.T. foolishness. In this constant debate about Jay-Z being the best ever I read things like "Nas will destroy Jay-Z" or "Eminem got a better flow than Jay" Those are OPINIONS. When will you fools learn that you can't win a debate with OPINIONS. Every rapper has a different style based on where they are from, the time period in which they were most successful, and their unique personality. We all can go on for days about our personal preferences but in a debate criteria like this is completely IRRELEVANT and automatically BIASED. The only way to win a debate is with cold hard FACTS. And the fact of the matter is that, when you weigh all of the tangible criteria (Sales, Critical Acclaim, Consistency, Longevity, and Impact) Jay-Z makes the strongest case for the G.O.A.T. Eminem has sold nearly twice as much as Jay-Z, and he is Jay's equal when it comes to longevity and impact. But Em lacks the consistency or critical acclaim that Jay-Z has (Im not talkin cult/fanboy classics, Im talkin CERTIFIED classics. XXL/Rolling Stone/Source approved) Eminem is VERY close though. Nas has enjoyed more critical acclaim and more overall respect in the hip-hop community through the years. And he's definitely equal to Jay with longevity and impact. But he hasn't been no where near as much of a consistent presence in hip-hop as Jay has. And he is obviously lacking in the sales department. Lil Wayne just may be the most consistent rapper of all time. He's no slouch when it comes to longevity and impact either. His glaring flaw? In his 12 year career Lil Wayne has yet to drop a truly critically acclaimed classic album (and it can be done in this climate. just look at kanye's discography). Also, contrary to popular beleif, Wayne lacks in the sales department. Sure, Tha Carter III and IV are blockbuster albums, but his OVERALL sales of 10 mil US pale in comparison to Jay-Z's 31 mil. 2pac is a touchy subject. When it comes to impact, pac takes the cake. No other rapper touched the world like 2pac did. He, like Em, has also sold more than Jay and he was very consistent in his time. Sadly, 2pac passed before his time which allowed Jay-Z to surpass him in longevity and critical acclaim. LL Cool J was the prototype for what a G.O.A.T. could be. He has enjoyed the most longevity, and he was fairly consistent, but his sales, acclaim and overall impact are no where near the likes of 2pac, Eminem, and ofcourse Jay-Z. Biggie, Rakim, Common, Snoop, the list goes on. All of these MC's are great but none of them have the total G.O.A.T. package like Jay-Z does. Jay-Z is the 3rd highest selling rapper of all time, and the richest. He's one of the most acclaimed (perhaps only rivaled by his boy Kanye). He dropped multi-platinum albums YEARLY from 96'-03', and he is still going strong today. He's been in the game since 88'. He's impacted hip-hop in countless ways from starting one of the 1st successful MC-owned record labels, to being the 1st non-athlete with a signature shoe, to surpassing the likes of Elvis with #1 albums. Jay-Z is without question the Greatest MC Of All Time. Period. You don't have to listen to him everyday (Im currently on my Kendrick wave). You don't even have to like him. But for goodness sake, RESPECT THE FACTS.

    • tigerking79

      How can Jay Z be the greatest when most of his catalogue is him biting other MC's style. His best album, Reasonable Doubt, was a complete rip off of Biggie Smalls' style. Jay Z is a great business man, not a great rapper.
