Beyonce's Drug Dealing Husband Repents from his Woman Hating Ways??

A couple of weeks ago, a publicist ( bless his heart) contacted me about promoting a video message prepared by rap artist and unrepentent drug dealer Jay Z on behalf of a group called Headcount. This is what I wrote back to the publicist:

As my blog is against the objectification and dehumanization of Black women, I will not be promoting anything featuring a former drug dealer who physically assaults Black women in public and calls them b*tches and ho's.  It is unfortunate that HeadCount chose to partner with a black woman hating misogynist. 

The fact that he was a woman hating misogynist never stopped unrepentant drug dealer turned husband to Beyonce,Jay-Z, from getting endorsement deals with Microsoft... afterall, Black women don't buy computers [NOT!] so who cares if the Bing spokesperson engages in gender-based hate speech? Jay Z recently gave an interview to Rolling Stone where he indicates some regret about his woman hatred. Not really. 

This is what they had to say over  at The Black Snob:

Jay settled down, got serious and got married. Although I'm not a big Jay-Z fan*, even I could tell the tone of his music had changed over the years. A lot of the misogyny that shows up in some rap music comes from the fact that you've got a bunch of dudes trying to one-up and impress each other. If that means you have to do a few verbal drive-bys on some women, who cares? Ha ha. It's supposed to be funny. If you're not a "bitch" you shouldn't care. Ha ha ha, some more. Then you grow up and you have that epiphany (if you're lucky) and you realize that you don't need to take a dump on all women to make yourself feel better. And you don't like it when other people say mean things about the women you love. Black Snob

Really Snob? He's grown? Has he really? Um have you seen these lyrics from a current song playing on the radio called Hot Tottie? This is what Beyonce's husband said... not ten years ago...TODAY:

We did it Indian style, had the girl speaking In tongues. She like, 'Young, you hung. What you done done?' Stop it 'fore you wake up my mom. I might (???). Now that I’ve arrived it’s time that you go… I’m so cold. I’m so cold." Hot Tottie

 Yeah, that makes me want to go do a search on Bing.  I can feel the repentance all the way over hey-ah where I'm inline to purchase a time share in the Brooklyn Bridge.

He's sweating, since Kareem "Biggs" Burke (his former business partner in his original record label) got arrested a few weeks ago for being involved/running in *The* major marijuana ring that has controlled most of the weed sales in the New York City area, going back 20 years.

I'll believe that Jay-Z is repentant about anything woman-related when Bush II is repentant about putting the USA in economic hell during his 8 year reign.

Well his marketing transformation has been admirable, hey even President Obama fell for it. Jay Z has already been at the White House and president Obama has name dropped him and Lil Wayne as his favorite rappers. Google Jay z White House for the pics, warning it might turn your stomach

He's following the Eminem's new marketing plan, 'say what they want to hear in public, but say how I really feel in my rap songs'. I don't buy this whole, I'm a changed man thing going around in hip hop nowadays. The TI fiasco was evident that these people would say anything to keep their jet set lifestyle. Funny, years ago if they would be calling each other sellouts, now they're all mainstream. Personally, I think we give Beyonce too much credit. This woman is just as materialistic and shallow as her husband. I say they make a perfect couple.

October 27, 2010 | Unregistered Commentershell

Why does President Obama "brag" about having Jay Z songs on his iPod? I think this sends a terrible mixed-message to our young people (as well as his own daughters...), and the First Lady, Valerie Jarrett and the many woman around him should discourage this.

Plus, I refuse to believe that a man of his age, education and lofty status, really listens to Jay Z,
Lil' Wayne and these other gangster rappers.

October 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterWanda

Yeah I read that nonsense on the Snob's blog yesterday and I HAD to comment. Like I said in my comments there Jay-Z and several rappers like him have made fortunes by selling records that denigrate, insult, degarde and disrespect women, especially BW. And now at 40-odd he realizes it's a "bad' thing to do? Really?

Jay-Z is a capitalist and he is adroit at knowing what sells and how to market it. Lyrically beating up on Black women was financially lucrative so he did it, now that he's a multi -millionaire, he can comfortably shake his head and say tsk tsk and blame his youth? Give me a break.

Trust -- this man and his ilk are all about MONEY, MONEY, MONEY and nothing else. There is no conscience outside of the almighty dollar.

Therefore, I'm sure that this "repentence" is due to the declining support from black women, and the beginning of a trend to shoot down sellout black men who defame & ridicule us. Sellout negros are just beginning to feel the heat and are trying to get ahead of the trend...

So new tactic: say pretty things while selling the same crap, hoping to keep black women confused enough to keep buying his derisive garbage.

October 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterShecodes

His music has changed throughout the years. He isn't a lyricist so I still don't expect much. He is doing all this pr to sell his book to a wider audience. Hot Tottie is a hot mess of a song. I was more disappointed in Usher for that one.

I thought he would be happy to see Biggs go down since he and Dame refuse to hand over/sell the masters to Reasonable doubt. Dame always said they did the dirty work for Jay. At some point these idiots will learn there is no real loyalty in that lifestyle.

October 27, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterrose32

It amazes me when people want so badly to believe that someone like Jay-Z has evolved with little to NO evidence of that evolution. I DON'T BUY IT.

If he was truly repentant about any of the violence he inflicted and the garbage he spewed towards black women we would be tired of seeing his face right now, because he would be all over every media form there is speaking against the hateful language and violence directed towards us. If he was truly repentant he would not be running a company that continues to perpetrate the same hate toward black women that he has supposedly outgrown. If he was truly repentant he would acknowledge the poor judgment he used without blaming someone else for him making the choices he did or excusing it based on age and circumstance.

He is clearly about damage control to augment his public image (for the money of course) and how people see his now 40 year old "biz-ness man" self! Nope, it's all preserved for a lifetime on those CD's you sold, the videos you created and the psyches you damaged for the almighty dollar!

Okay so it's not just me who wants nothing to do with anything Jay z is involved with.

What I don't get is how Jada and Will Smith have their 9 year-old daughter hooked up with this woman hating man! I feel so bad for Willow. Her parents really need to get her away from Jay z.

My sistas, my sistas! Dang, Blog mother, just when I thought you couldn't get any harder on negroes -- BAM!! You hit Jay Z.

Much respect to you Blog mother and all the others here today. Now, what do you all think of Yawn Murray on the Tom Joyner Morning Show? He basically said a bunch of angry, nappy haired Black women shouldn't criticize Tyler Perry for his work on "For Colored Girls." I don't mind Yawn or anyone else offering a movie, play or book review; I welcome that. I also welcome his opinion if he disagrees with those of us who are uncomfortable with the idea of Tyler Perry working on "For Colored Girls", especially those like myself who remember the original play and how profoundly it touched us.

But why does the little wanna be journalist have to call us "a bunch of angry, nappy haired Black women" to get his point across? So Don Imus should lose his job for his comments three years ago, D. L. Hughly should get a new show after basically saying the same thing three days later and he (Yawn) should get a pass? ARE THESE NEGROES SERIOUS?? :( :(

I agree with all the comments...although, I'm surprised no one pointed this out...Jay Z has always been a grown ass man when he made all his music...so how did he not know his words are harmful to women at when he was 28, 35, 38..lol who he fooling! (and man has got be at least 45 now..he has been "going on 40" for the past five years now...smh lol)

anyway...i find Jay Z and Beyonce to be so annoying...gosh they have to be the most annoying celebs out there now...both arrogant and media obsessed (ie beyonce's pr stunt with the whole pregnancy thing last week)

Come on now. Surely you both know that the reason Obama says he listens to Jay Z and Lil' Wayne is to garner "street cred" among the masses. *snickers*

*rolls eyes*

You kill me with hyperbolic rants about the allegedly "unrepentant drug dealer."

I guess a person has to always publicly flog themselves for their misdeeds for you to be pleased. Considering that much of this country from politicians on is filled with "unrepentant drug dealers" your seeming annoyance with all things Jay-Z seems quite comical at best and a bit pathetic at worst.

And Im not even a Jay fan.

Are you serious?

What "declinign support form black women." In what world? Jay is still as popular as ever. Even with the mediocre music he's been putting out lately he still sells more than 99% of rappers out right now. His "support" is just fine.

And black women don't make up the bulk of hip hop sales anyway so we pull back or not - we ain't buttering his bread.

*DEEP HEAVY SIGH* and smh.

I always find it funny that people love for folks to be all redeemed,changed and delivered...at least when speaking on BLACK MEN.

Let me give yall a few reasons why it is perfectly acceptable to "flog" Jay-Z and his ilk.

1.Even though they've changed,which many of them don't and have NOT but we'll pretend they did, why should they,the dealers, get a second chance when so many of the crack heads and the crack head's CHILDREN dont'?

How do we know that some of the people Jay-Z sold to are'nt dead?

A few of the reasons why I hate street drug dealers so much is because

1.Most of the dealers that I knew were not only drug dealers but many of them were also Pedophiles,
2.They murdered others that were'nt hooked on drugs.People who were innocent bystanders who saw and knew too much.
3.They had everybody in the neighborhood living in terror.Had grandma's afraid to leave the house and go to night service on sunday night
4.They were theives and robbers.They had guns and noone else did and they'd take anything from you that they damn well pleased...even your BODY.

But the biggest reason we can continue to flog Jay-Z and others like him till infiinity is because if we as black women did half the wreckless shyte these negroes do we'd be flogged until infinity.Hell many of them,ghetto classless negroes like Jay-Z,are flogging yall baby mommas and other black women at every turn .This is exactly why they don't add value to the lives of the AA women who have been wreckless enough to deal with them on a phony pretend love non romantic unloving sexual level.

Let's look at the UNFORGIVING incompassionate mindset of plenty of black males,at least the ones from the school of the hardknocks like Jay-Z, towards anybody that is not a black male through one or two of their favorite coined phrases.

1.Can't turn a hoe into a housewife,Once a hoe always a hoe...(their behavior shows this only applies to black women) I mean in their mind Karrine Steffans and other "whores" don't get or deserve a second chance.Neither do you loose baby mommas.

What about how all the black men who have killed raped and have done AWFUL things to people have advocates in the bc who think they deserve a second chance but when WHITE MEN do something equally horrendous and awful to a black man they want folks to get life and death sentences.

Overall if anyone listens to most, not all, black mens take on victims and victimizers you'll find that the overall belief is that ANYONE who has victimized black men deserves to suffer or die with no second chances.You'll find that most of them feel that when they do something wrong they should be forgiven/spared and given the second,thrid,fourth,fifth,
six hundredth chance.

The Jay-Z's of the world have no compassion for anyone else.They are some of the MOST unforgiving people on the planet.If us loose nigra gals must wallow in shame forever why shouldn't they have to?

Consider all the black male colorists in the industry who are unapologetic about their hateful anti black words and behavior and how they bitch and moan all the time about what some white man said or did to them(Kanye) for no other reason than the color of their skin.

We really don't have to give them a second chance.We can really hold every bad thing that the Sean Carters of the world have done over their heads FOREVER.WHY?You ask.Because it's what they'd do to US.

October 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTruth P.

Speaking on chances and forgiveness, we also DON'T have to give Obama and the NAACP anymore chances or forgiveness either.I have'nt forgotten what they did to Grandma Shirley and cousin Ree-Ree.Bastards!

Gina sometimes I wonder what you think about people who have done things in the past and no longer do; people in programs like AA and NA who've been clean for over 20 years. What do you believe, the before sobriety or the after? As for Jay-Z, I've never listened to his "music" and don't intend to.

October 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterEva

@ Eva and others, this is not a question of whether or not people, even Sean "Jay Z" Carter
"deserve" a second (or third, fourth, fifth, etc.) chance. When a SINCERE person apologizes, they have regret in their heart, in their mind. They know what they did, they know what they did was wrong, they seek an opportunity to apologize AND they pledge to take CORRECTIVE ACTION OVER A PERIOD OF TIME, no matter how long it takes, to make sure they never do the injustice again.

Jay Z may do good things with his money and fame, giving to charities, speaking to kids, visiting prisons/talking to ex-offenders, financing plays/movies (didn't he help finance the broadway play "Fela!"?), etc., which is all well and good, but to knowingly do good AND knowingly do wrong, is a contradiction, hypocritical perhaps? That's like Bishop Eddie Wrong giving cash money to people, helping to pay three months' mortgage, three months' car payments, etc., and then do all other matter of other wrong things and then think the wrong things will be ignored because of the good things done. Change is suppose to be a on-going process, challenging though it probably will be.

So yes, people can and do change. God is indeed a forgiving God, but remember, God's grace ain't that cheap either! :(

I guess I thought this little rap quote (?) would fit in here...

Back in 1994, Tupac made the song, Keep ya Head Up Since and this verse stuck out to me:

"We all came from a woman, got our name from a woman and our game from a woman, I wonder why we take from our women, why we rape our woman, do we hate our women? I think it's time to kill for our women, time to heal our women, be real to our women, And if we don't we'll have a race of babies that hate the ladies that make the babies..."

Its kind of sad that this post has garnered so much attention. Our society is too bent on what celebrities do and say. Frankly I do not care if he is repentant or not. His words spread. Its like a hydra. And one quote in a magazine does not begin to repair that. And us bickering about it only gives credibility to foolishness.

I'm new to your blog I was browsing on the internet and stumbled upon on it by reading a post that mentioned your blog on the verysmartbrothas.com. Well reading your posts about Jay Z and reading the comments I don't agree with anything that your guys are saying. I know you are trying to promote non-foolishness and all but do you not promote forgiveness? So Jay Z called women B's and things in the past but if you don't like it then don't listen to his music. He has matured and grown as a person and now he is taking responsibility for what he has said. And okay when he was younger he sold drugs and such to provide for himself; well he did what he knew how to do best in his environment and now you see that he has taken himself out of the environment and is lving a more positive lifestyle. Jay Z's name isn't Jay Z the drug dealer no it's Jay Z the rapper Sean Carter the man is his real name that you don't know even know. Being a rapper is his profession. You don't know the positive things he has done in his community so instead of bringing our black men down with negative comments try to get to know them and build them up.

Misogynic rap music that beats on black women, is nothing more than a modern form of 'minstrely'; what white men did to black women in the 19th and 20th centuries. All the mammies were WHITE MEN FIRST but by the time real black women and men played those roles----they had to play the minstrel (black face with white eyes and mouth) Rap artists make a lot of money putting us down and making the sex act nothing more than a (sexfest) and WERE SUPPOSED TO LIKE IT?. WHATEVER HAPPENED TO MOTOWN, AND REAL LOVESONGS COMING FROM MEN (not just women vocalists) about marriage and permanence? would Nat King cole, stevie wonder Jackie Wilson etc. even listen to this mess? Jay Z and his contemporaries are just horrible and the women (like Beyonce) could just be fooled or don't care in fooling black women, and girls

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterj

Jay-Z and his ilk are DBRs period. Add it to your lexicon so you can properly identify their behavior. And speak it often!! They are truly damaged beyond repair and offer no value to the lives of BW. How quickly people forget he did a public record denigrating the mother of Nas' oldest child (and the kid too I think) a few years and later said he was "sorry". That's a lot of apologizing for someone who has supposedly changed!!

When Jay-Z gives all his money to the black women he's denigrated then he will have proved himself redeemed. Even that New York song he performed with Alicia Keys had disgusting lyrics. He hasn't changed one iota.

If you've also noticed a lot of the newer (c)rap music is moving towards sampling (stealing) 80's & '90's new wave music to keep the audience going. Things are waning on one end and they must scramble for more market share. He is an unrepentant drug dealer just like most of the criminals who put out crap records in between their jail sentences.

The only thing beside some of the foolish buying audience (that would be those BW who don't understand the difference between an uplifting black culture the honors BW and the cesspool that is currently mascerading as one) that's propping up the careers of these criminals/black woman haters are the white males who are their lawyers and record label owners and others who are cashing in while they can (after all the crapper don't OWN their masters). Heck the label heads are the masters and they will continue to profit at our collective foolishness!!

Whatever criminal activity comes to light and ensnares Jay-Z is long overdue. 50 Cent took to Twitter to call BW every manner of vile name his little peon brain could come up with while bragging that it would be easier to kill the mother of his son than continue paying child support. This is after the house they lived in burned down accidentally (on purpose). Keeping public records of these criminal acts is a good thing because the denials won't hold water.

The main problem is how confused many BW still are about how the majority of BM engage in the most vile, hateful, violent behavior enacted against them specfically: PUBLICLY AND WITHOUT SHAME. They revel in it! They brag about it! Then they slip up and think they can do it a non-black woman - get smacked on the head by other males who police their errant behavior - and BW come to their defense talking some nonsense about racism!!! No - it's called protecting women and behaving like a human being instead of a ...DBR!

For all of the vile things the (c)rappers DO say there's a laundry list of things they DO NOT say. They don't disrespect anyone and everyone. They target black women. Stop supporting them!

@ MsLBeauty...
Well, the better question would be to go track down the former customers of Jay-Z and their children and find out how much forgiveness they have in their hearts after seeing this man make millions off of an empire that begin with their pain and suffering. How much money has Jay-Z put DIRECTLY back into the neighborhood(s) that he used to sell in? How many former addicts has he helped to find permanent housing? Making sure that those kids whose parents he sold to may be able to go to college? Trade school? Financed loans so that the citizens in those areas could take out mortgages or start businesses? You know what, I don't NEED to know. I know that it isn't enough to begin to repair the havoc that this man wanted normalized in our communities. Or to begin to erase the tarnish that he's helped to cause on the image of AA women. Why do I have to go out of my way to "uplift" a man who called women who look like me a B*****? And got paid for it. For about the past FIFTEEN YEARS. What the WHAT? Are you for real???**

** (yes, I know YOU are, but for those who are not delusional, think about that statement).

I don't know about you, but - I - don't easily forgive ANYONE who feels free to describe all black women as B****** & Ho** to make a dollar. Why do I need to forgive Jay-Z? No really ... why do ANY of us NEED to forgive Jay-Z? Why does it bother you that don't forgive him? Are you on his payroll? Do you know him personally? Because if not, then whatever disgruntlements you have about people not "forgiving" Jay-Z don't affect you. This isn't church. And last time I was there, no one outside of the influence of GOD can demand my forgiveness, especially when I'm still dealing with the effects of their mess. You're up here defending some man you don't know b/c after he made millions deriding your image to the American and world-wide stage b/c he decided to drop some lines in an interview about "change"? If Jay-Z is not paying you NOW, gurrrrrl, go get your money!

I don't forgive him (and probably never will) for MAINSTREAMING derogatory messages about black women and girls. He helped to make this "acceptable" behavior. TOO THROUGH with this dude. Oh, and why don't you go check up on what he has done for that poor child who was molested in New Jersey a few months ago in a housing project, you know, when he stated that he was going to reach out and help hold a Hip-Hop rally to stop crime there.

And HOLD UP... when did rapping become an HONORABLE profession? Did I miss that? Because that revelation MISSED me! If talking about the women who look like your mother, your sister, your girlfriend, your wife, your neighbor as if they are equal to mating dogs is an honorable profession, then count me in the newly DIS-Honorable professions such as teaching, medicine, engineering, etc... .

@DailyLattes *STANDING OVATION*

November 1, 2010 | Registered CommenterThe Blogmother

And he never even asked for forgiveness or expressed remorse. He simply said: "I can't believe I said those things." To me that's not the same as saying you are genuinely sorry for a past action and are seeking resolution and forgiveness for it, or are reaching out to make amends.
Not to mention, as someone else posted earlier, obviously he knew when he was writing those lyrics and being a misogynist that it was wrong, but he still did it anyway. It's not like he did those things when he was five years old.
I don't believe he gives a crap about any of it, quite frankly.

November 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterNia

Another commenter who deserves a standing ovation is Truth P. She said "Most of the dealers that I knew were not only drug dealers but many of them were also Pedophiles". This is something I didn't know until she said it but it makes PERFECT sense.

I've heard some black people say that selling drugs is a "nonviolent crime" quite unlike, say, murder, rape or armed robbery etc. They say this, I think, because they want so-called nonviolent drug dealers sentenced to some sort of drug rehab instead of long prison sentences (you know, the kind of black people who rant and rave about the "mass incarceration" of black men). However, like Truth P said, there are aspects to drug dealing that people who didn't grow up in the "hood" aren't aware of.

Truth P deserves a standing ovation because she has revealed (for those who didn't ALREADY know) that drug dealers are often MURDERERS AND RAPERS (including child rapers). I would add that because of the "no snitching rule" (and general lawlessness) now prevalent in black residential areas that many, if not most, of these murders and rapes are NEVER punished.

@DailyLattes Everyone is entitled to their opinion, so I can respect what you had to say but I don't agree with it. I don't know Jay Z personally, I am a fan of his music and he using the word "B-" and calling women"H-s" doesn't affect me because he isn't talking about me personally and I know as a woman that I'm not that. I don't understand when you reference the former customers of Jay Z and if he has helped them out like what are you talking about? Why should it be his responsibility to help former addicts get financed loans and help them get permanent housing?? He isn't President Obama. If he chooses to help his community that it is his prerogative. How is his music affecting the community? Have you ever seen a headline that read "young man shoots up neighborhood because of the effects of listening to Jay Z". REALLY?! Get out of here. And let's see, there a tons of people that are die hard fans of Jay Z that enjoy his music. For you to say that he only made money off of calling women b-'s and h's is a lie he has used those words but his lyrics are telling a story and if a woman puts herself in a situation that doesn't reflect any good of who she is then she knows what she is doing and knows the names that people will associate toward her. If a woman sleeps with multiple men then she is a h-, if a woman acts rude for no reason then she is a b-. I am an African American/Filipino WOMAN and I use those words describing other women that I come into contact and I'm pretty sure there are other women doing that as well. I know my self worth so I'm not going to judge someone so harshly just because they used profanity in their music and called women out their names. As I digress...

I never said that anyone has to forgive give him I brought up the option. I kow this isn't church obviously but I was just saying. It seems everyone that has made comments on this topic has a one sided opinion and I don't agree. Also you seem to forget that Jay Z isn't the only rapper out there that has used foul language. Also, I didn't see any reports out there that said Jay Z was going to hold a Hip-Hop rally to stop crime but like I said if he did or didn't that isn't his responsibility. The government is responsible so if you have any issues with crime then you might want to consult with your state officals and that is really who you should be holding responsbile. And I never said that rap was an honorable profession but who are you to say that it isn't? If you don't like the music then DON'T LISTEN to it! I am aware of pop culture and I am also aware of the issues in our world that are more important so I think you need to focus your attention on what really matters in the world and stop reading into things so literally...
