Music & Entertainment | Jay Z Opens Up About His Life Of Crime Before the Fame



Well we all knew that successful rapper and business mogul Hova had a dark past — living a life of drug dealing where “crack was everywhere” during his struggle growing up in the infamous Marcy Houses. But to open up even more in a recent interview with Vanity Fair, says something else.

“There wasn’t any place you could go for isolation or a break. You go in the hallway; [there are] crackheads in the hallway. You look out in the puddles on the curbs—crack vials are littered in the side of the curbs. You could smell it in the hallways, that putrid smell; I can’t explain it, but it’s still in my mind when I think about it.”

Jay Z admits as a result of living that lifestyle prior to fame, he learned a whole lot of strategies on what makes a business a “business”.

“I know about budgets. I was a drug dealer,” he said. “To be in a drug deal, you need to know what you can spend, what you need to re-up. Or if you want to start some sort of barbershop or car wash—those were the businesses back then. Things you can get in easily to get out of [that] life.”

Mr. Carter went even further in the interview to discuss his small family of 3 — saying that his daughter, Blue Ivy, is his biggest fan.



And remember that line, “She was a good girl ’til she knew me“? Yep, that’s right, all about Mrs. Baddie Bey. When asked if she was a good girl now, well —-

“Nah,” he said. “She’s gangsta now.” -Shawn Carter
