We Don’t Believe You

If you enjoy hearing stories about rappers getting called out by past acquaintances this one should be right up your alley. Pause. Meet Calvin “Klein” Bacote, a former drug dealer who hails from Brooklyn.

I know he doesn’t appear to be a crack slanging type of guy. As a matter of fact it looks like he just finished up his shift at Miss Sixty, but as we all know looks can be deceiving.

While serving a 13 year bid on drug charges, Jay-Z (who testified on Klein’s behalf in another court case) gave his word that once released he would look out for him. But when Jay’s promises went unfulfilled, a disappointed Klein went on to pursue other opportunities, working as tour manager for Akon and starting his own label, Shut Em Down Entertainment.

I mean, its better than working the car hop at Whataburger with Rell and Nicole Wray but still.

During a recent stop at Kay Slay’s Shade 45 radio show, he held no punches when talking about his former friend.

    Watch as Jay-Z’s fantasy life of crack dealing begins to publicly unravel. Did Picasso have the time or the compulsion to be good enough at importing heroin to NOT get caught or did he just stick to painting pictures of women strung out on heroin?

    Jay-Z is an artist much like Picasso. If anyone thought anything different then they shoulkd kill themselves.

    Certified Hater. Jay is worth over 300 million dollars and has inspired millions with his flawless flows.

    Bottom line, Jay grew up in the Marcy Projects and is now worth over 300 million dollars and is internationally known and respected…all you can do is take your hat off in respect and say wow.

  • Cuban Link

    Word, Jay used to be slanging them thangs.Hes one of the few dudese with a certified drug dealing past, unlike, say, Young Jeezy.

  • these posts are racist

    Billy,

    What’s your proof that Jay-Z fabricated his life story? Is it your position that Jay-Z fabricated his entire life story?

    You seem pretty confident to recommend that those who don’t believe Jay-Z to be a fraud are so off that they should kill themselves…but you don’t offer proof, facts or argument to support this “assertion”.

  • http://AHH Hoodsavvy

    its funny, while in the don diva magazine he was biggin jay past life up…now that jay didnt look out hes singing another tune..that makes him 1 of 2 thangs, hell if not both…a liar, or a bitter bitch…in this interview you wouldnt even consider jay a friend?…like he some type of flea…well that flea is not bumble bee…$300 mil just like that…now you wanna be butt buddies?….which one is it strange’???

  • lukee lefty

    lol Billy X posted without even listening to the link, the guy co-signs that jay sold drugs obviously the big hustlers from the 80′s got fed time so we all know Jay wasnt a big time dealer. The facts are all there you just have to pay attention.

  • bizzle

    How would you know what jay z did…did you grow up with him in brooklyn? Where you on the block with him in marcy? You’re the fantasy artist billy…I dont believe you..you need more people.

  • these posts are racist

    Yo Billy, are you going to start deleting my comments from other people’s posts as well? Billy Sunday, Fake Intellectual who deletes the comments of real intellectuals that ether his ridiculous arguments.

    duke looks like a combination of the hump that played “spawn” in the live-action movie and the guy that tap dances on sand at the beach for change.

  • Swayz

    C’mon man, you can’t try to shit on Jay like he’s soft and then say you caught an attempted murder charge with him??

  • lukee lefty

    between Kay Slay, and Calvin Klein these 2 come off as the most ass hurt feelings broken dudes all the need is Jaz-O to complete the circle, that radio segment should’ve been sponsored by Kleenex

  • Combat Jack

    that’s the funniest shit right there. “jay ain’t never move as much weight as me, but back in ’88, we both caught an attempted murder charge”. classic!!!!! jay stays winning!.

  • http://myspace.com/djmydas DJ Mydas

    homey needs to be a man and stop waiting on another man to give him a free lunch…granted, he got his shit together later, but coming out and standing around hoping that Jay-Z is gonna hook you up with a weed-carrier position is just hustling backwards…

  • fg

    ABSOLUTE HATER.THE SAD PART IS THAT IN AN ATTEMPT TO DISCREDT JAY,HE ACTUALLY CERTIFIED AND CONFIRMED JAYS HOOD STRIPES.HE PROVED THAT JAY WAS REALLY A HUSTLER.HE PROVED THAT JAY REALLY RAN THE STREETS .

    HOW U GONNA CALL JAY A SOLDIER THE CLAIM U TOK A MURDER CHARGE FOR HIM.WHAT KINDA DON DOES THAT FOR A SOLDIER?
    HE SYS HE INT BITTER AT JAY YET HE COMPLAINING IN THE NEXT SENTENCE THAT JAY AINT GIVE HIM A JOB.
    WHAT KINDA DON GOES ON THE RADIO TALKING SHIT AND GOSSIPING ABOUT ANOTHER MANS SEX LIFE(RIHANNA)

    CALVIN KLEIN LOST.
    HE WAS CO SIGNING JAY IN DON DIVA BACK WHEN.BUT NOW THAT HE AINT GET NO MORE MONEY FOR JAY HE TALKING SHIT.
    WHAT THAT MEAN?IT MEANS HIS WORD IS ONLY AS GOOD AS THE AMOUNT OF MONEY ON OFFER SO WHY SHOULD WE BELIEVE HIM NOW?

  • Melchizodok

    Klien is what these cats ryhme about, really. Biggie talked about robbing a iron horse (subway train for none nyers), klein actually did that and robbing stadiums, snatching whatever from whoever for fun ontop of having Marcy & Red hook on smash for starters! Jigga is a fabrication compared 2 Klein. 1st Jigga (Jay-Z) bit Jaz-O steez and flipped his name. Then he swallows (beyond bites) Biggs catalog then says he’s better than him, wtf. I got Jay’s catalog, I”M A JAY-Z FAN 2 the fullest but face it, He did Dash dirty also! come on, how much more evidence you need 2 understand homie is suspect

  • THAT BOY NOAH

    motherfuckers are always trying to talk down..BUT FUCK EM. say fresh what you know bout wataburger.haha!

  • DiamondT

    Why is it so hard to believe that Jay did people wrong? Why is it so hard to believe that he could be lying, like every other rapper that you all accuse of lying about their life? Everybody isn’t lying, a hater, or jealous. If this was any other rapper, y’all would believe Calvin with the quickness. But since it’s Jay, it can’t be true.

  • deeekin

    what type of dude talks about gifts other dudes are supposed to give him. sounds like he wants to be one of jay’s hos.

  • FADE

    this is not going to matter….slightly entertaining but the bottom line is no one really cares

  • JSpru

    Man Jay is a classic anyway…what’s done is done the mans practically retired. If this came out around reasonable doubt (his pushin album) I guess it’d have a little bit more impact. Dude sounds jealous anyway. Should be happy they both be makin money now, I mean he’s workin for Akon who has been puttin out hit after hit(sadly). He should be just glad he aint in jail no more and is makin that cash

    @byggz *pause*

    my post above

  • these posts are racist

    Byggz,

    I never said I believe anything…I just questioned Billy’s belief that Jay fabricated his life story…that’s all. And per usual, Billy never responded.

    “hip hop has turned into a fuckin’ joke-”

    And in your opinion, when was Hip Hop “not a joke”? What rappers/albums are not a joke according to you?

  • these posts are racist

    Here’s a snippet from a Financial Times article written about Jay-Z.

    “In December 2004 he was appointed president and chief executive of Def Jam Recordings, the pre-eminent, Universal-owned hip-hop label, placing him at the pinnacle of his profession.

    As head of Def Jam, he earns a reported $8m-$10m a year, with the power to sign or drop artists, according to the dictates of his taste. Carter, who describes himself as a “fair” boss, has control over everything from album production to marketing: “There’s the artist side to me that wants to spend $4m on a video,” he tells me, “and the business side that pulls me back thinking ‘that’s gonna break us’.”

    His business interests don’t stop there: Carter also runs his own label, Roc-A-Fella Records, has a clothing line, Rocawear, that grossed over $300m in 2004, part-owns the New Jersey Nets basketball team and has a string of nightclubs. At 36, he is worth a reported $320m (₤170.5m), amassed in little more than 10 years – pretty startling when compared with David Bowie’s estimated net worth of ₤120m or even Sting’s ₤185m. Madonna, who is a decade older than Carter and whose career is into its third decade, is worth a mere ₤248m. Along with fellow rapper Sean “P. Diddy” Combs, Jay-Z is one of the most high-profile of the new breed of hip-hop entrepreneurs: men who have gone from poverty to extreme riches in a very short time.”

    IF JAY IS AS FAKE AS THIS DUDE SAYS HE IS, THEN WHY WAS HE FRIENDS WITH HIM?????
