LINK: New York Interviews Former Jay-Z Associate De-Haven

In a new interview with New York Magazine, former Jay-Z associate DeHaven tells some revealing stories about coming up with Jay-Z. While Dehaven alluded to having dirt on Jay in his series of “Jay-Z Exposed” YouTube clips, he failed to go into much detail. Since then, Jay addressed him on the American Gangster track “No Hook,” where he says ““Fuck De-Haven for cavin’, that’s why we don’t speak/Made men ain’t supposed to make statements/End of the story, I followed the code, cracked the safe/Other niggas ain’t in the game so they practice hate.” Now, as DeHaven prepares to release a book and a DVD about the controversey, he spoke to New York writer Ben Westoff about growing up with Jay, and how he feels about being mentioned in his songs:

Did you and Jay sell drugs together?
No, he ain’t do much selling drugs. I did all that work. He was just a good dude to be around. He was one of my best friends. I taught him some things, but I mainly kept him from being out on the street a lot. Whatever was mine was his. So, we shared clothes, we shared a whole bunch of stuff. We had sex with the same women plenty of times. We both got burnt! We had the drip. My mom took him to the clinic. My mom also got him out of jail.

Does Jay exaggerate his drug-dealing in his songs?
I’m telling you he overexaggerates. He was there to see things, but doing some big-time Frank Lucas–type thing? No. He nickled and dimed, but nothing on a major scale. He definitely didn’t sell nothin’ in Marcy. Spanish Jose, who he mentions a lot [in his songs], was a friend of mine. Jay didn’t have no affiliation to Spanish Jose.

When he talks about you on “No Hook,” is he accusing you of snitching?
I think he’s talking about the way I went about this YouTube project [and not about snitching]. But he’s into subliminal messages, so [I think] he’s trying to get me hurt. That goes beyond disrespect. He’s getting my safety involved. I can’t believe my own daughter’s godfather is trying to get me hurt. But it won’t work. Being that I’ve been in prison a lot of times, a lot of people know my credibility. They know I went all the way to trial with my federal case, and I won.

    If she don’t like me she must be a lesbo
    I get it nightly, man that’s my schedule
    Dre Bledsoe, I’m the quarterback
    Whatever cost the most, I’m a order that
    Across the border strapped my Ese’s
    Come through with fluff from Peru
    I come from a crew
    Of cutthoats, bank robbers, and dope dealers
    It’s business with us nigga get out yo feelin’s
    Get out yo scrillin’s, live like a king
    Take the top off the Heem, pop you a thing
    I don’t buss them in half, it leave a nasty taste
    I swallow them hole, and get the Thizz face
    It’s laced, with nathin’ but game
    I steal them from niggaz, that be cuffin’ they dame
    I’m fuckin’ his main, while he gettin’ his grind on
    Get bossed, get costed, get paid than I’m gone
    My tone, is loud sometimes
    I scream at a bitch, like she a crowd sometimes
    Tell her a thousand times, hoe goe make it happen
    It consequences, if she don’t make it happen
    I’m trying to find them bitches, that’s dough paper havin’

    i knew it,im from NEW YORK upstate but i got peeps in the BRONX and BK,anyone can tell you in the GOLDEN AGE OF HIP HOP,late 80s early 90s can tell you, RAP and the streets dont mix…rappers now talk about movin pies but back then rappers got extorted by drug-dealers and neighborhood goons.JAY-Z old school slangin packs because the pusher had all the cake in the hood.why you think NEW YORK rappers name themselves after drug dealers and not movie stars?AZ,50,SUPREME etc.only a few rappers are really connected like CAM RON because the nig is half dominican and fux wit COLOMBIANS

    Thats real talk…..

  • CHICAGO “G”

    Part of me wants to believe this dude cause jay has been rumored to fuck over a few friends going back to Jaz-O but i say rumored cause i don’t know the story… If Jay ain’t fucking with him there must be a reason, i can’t really take sides cause i don’t know either of these cats, but i know a real nigga would not waste all this time trying to expose a nigga he’s gonna get on the grind and create his own situation you know (put himself in a better space) I never believe what Jay says on the Mic or any other rapper he’s just a dope lyricist nothing more or less.

    • nappy_pappy

      Damn finally a comment I can co-sign. Now my 2 cents. Look, we are living in an era now where everything is “REAL.” Who cares about where JayZ grew up? Who cares what he did when he was 16, or who he did and when he did it. The man is a good lyricist, makes good music, and thats it! These celebrities are human beings just like any of us!! The only difference is that they have picked a profession that has thrusted them into the public’s eye. But NOTHING makes them special! They still put their jeans on one leg at a time!! Everyone is obsessive and it needs to STOP!! Look at Michael… he molests kids!! He probably has always been a molestor!!! Yet he still is the King of Pop!! He will still sell out venues across the world. So I guess what I’m tryin to say is EVERYONE GET A LIFE!!! ITS ONLY ENTERTAINMENT!!!

  • BKnowledge

    First off… Jay-Z is nice lyrically. Second, this dude is a phony. He didn’t fund Jay. Source Money funded Jay’s career and you don’t hear about him saying anything. I grant that Jay wasn’t much of a baller, or a drug dealer, but he is a hell of a hustler. Check the Forbes pages if you doubt it. The only true statement about helping Jay get on is that Jaz and Kane put in work with Jay. Everything else is false!!!

    Dude kill yourself! Jump off the the 16th floor. I know you! You’re cake chasing… Dudes kill me with this I funded him/her, yet you’re still in the PJ’s…

  • MR. UNDISPUTED THE MOGUL

    HERE WE GO AGAIN, MORE BULLSHIT, THIS LOSER TALKED ALL THIS BULLSHIT ON THOSE BS YOU TUBE SKITS, DID’NT EXPOSE ANYTHING & NOW THAT JAY ANSWERS BACK ON AMERICAN GANGSTER, HE’S TALKING ABOUT “I CAN’T BELIEVE MY OWN DUAGHTER’S GODFATHER IS TRYING TO GET ME HURT. DUMBASS YOU STARTED THIS SHIT. IF YOUR NOT AFTER A QUICK PAYOFF, WHY GO PUBLIC WITH THIS FAKE SHIT! ALL JAY-Z HATERS DO IS USE THIS BS TO TALK SHIT. I REMEMBER JAY-Z SAYING IN VIBE MAG BACK IN 1998 THAT HE TRIED TO SIGN JAZ-O BACK WHEN THE ROC WAS A PEBBLE & HE FELT BAD SIGNING TO THE LABEL CO FOUNDED BY HIS EX PROTEGE, SO LEAVE THAT BS ALONE. EVERY SUCCESFUL PERSON, RAPPER,SINGER, ATHLETE ETC. HAS GOT SOME ALWAYS GONE BE GHETTO IGNORANT PERSON/PEOPLE IN HIS/HER PAST THAT FEELS LIKE BECAUSE THEY SPENT EVEN 1 DAY TOGETHER THEIR OWED SOMETHING. JAY-Z IS SO FUCKED UP THAT PEOPLE KEEP NAMING HIM GODFATHER TO THEIR CHILDREN(DAME,DEHAVEN) FUCK OUTTA HERE!!HELL DAME GREW UP WITH “BIGGS” YET JAY IS BOOGIES GODFATHER. BUT AS SOON AS THE MAN WISES UP & SAYS I NEED TO GET RID OF SOME DEAD WEIGHT OR I CAN DO THIS SHIT BY MYSELF, NOW HE’S DISLOYAL & FOUL.
    GET REAL!! A YEAR FROM NOW DEHAVEN WILL BE A MEMORY, BOOK FLOPPED & ALL, IF IT EVEN COMES OUT.

  • http://www.immortal-technique.com glasscut360

    well this guy is telling the truth although he’s is bitter point blank, even yayo told the truth yayo was nickel and dimming and of course Jay-Z is feeling the heat. Hov your not a king from my country nigeria.. The real gangsta’s are people like me that walked 4 miles just to get bath water.. Holla. You Convenience socialized ignorant bums especially Jay-Z, you worship people that feed you poison ( blue magic ) is about heroine/ Duffelbag boy is about selling drugs.. De-haven is a just a man that understands how to share again although bitter. He’s trying to tell yall something about Jay-Z who is a nobody to me fuck his millions.. I’d rather die poor, teaching and speaking the truth than poison people and be rich beyond my wildest dreams, because I inspired a generation of bad writers, and feed my own people self destruction.. period.. allah said hell is for the entertainment of the non-believers.. Jay-Z will never go to heaven. its only a matter of time before God speaks..

  • Mz. Deevah

    This story is nothing more than the crabs in the barrel theory…Everytime a man tries to come up and better his situation,a nothing-ass nigga gotta come along and try to pull him back down because he cant’t do shit for himself. I don’t know the real story invlolved with Jay-z’s hustling days because I wasn’t there to witness it. But I’m not dumb enough to belive that a nigga that call’s himself a TRUE HUSTLER can’t do anything other than grind off of somebody else’s hustle. If you were that TRUE HUSTLER and Jay-z wasn’t and you claim to have taught Jay-z basically everything he knows about hustling, then why is he making all these major moves like a true hustler does and your just using his name to make any kind of move and hoping for the best??? Tell me where is the true hustler in that? If you was that TRUE HUSTLER, you would have been putting shit togeher while you were locked up, formulating a plan to make shit happen once you touched down. Even if you didnt’t beat that case, and couldn’t put plan A in effect, the TRUE HUSTlER in you would’ve have a plan B. No matter the situation a real hustler is always gonna make money on his own some kind of way. Truth be told a real hustler never stops making money. Being a women raised by nothing but TRUE HUSTLERS, even I know that Real niggas don’t throw hate at another nigga because his hustle game is better or stronger, you just man up and get your game tighter, point blank. And I’m not commenting on you because I’m a real big Jay-z fan. I’m commmenting because real recognize real and that nigga Jay-z is a real ass nigga, regardless of how big or how small, how real or how fake his hustle game was, the truth of the matter is he made Rap his hustle, stayed on his grind relentlessly and became the $400 million dollar man…period! And since you said you paid for everything or funded Jay’s early rap career, wouldn’t that make Jaz-O a liar? Because he said that he used to let Jay come in and lay tracks during his studio time. And I do believe that Jaz-o was under a contract, and that means that whatever is needed for that project was a part of Jaz-o’s budget,and whatever is a part of that budget is paid for by the label… crowd extras, security and all! So you couldn’t have been that necessary! And wouldn’t Dame Dash be just as much as a big ass liar too? I mean, because in interview after interview Dame has said that Jay was doing it real big, he was one of the biggest hustlers coming out of Brooklyn and He was doing it real big in Harlem, they met and put their resources together to do it ever bigger…and he also said that Jay used HIS own money to paid for his own studio time, to make his own videos, to press his own vinyl or cds, he even put up his own money to start his own label along with Dame and Biggs… Even Lyor, Kevin Liles and Russell are all on camera saying the same shit! What, so they’re all lying too? So if THEY ALL said Jay used his own money, it had to come from some where and it damn sure don’t come from nickle and dimin’! The way I see it, you were one of those niggas who probably hated from the side lines, Doggin him behind his back and talking shit like he wasn’t going to make it. You probably thought he was a lame ass nigga because he took a gamble on rapping instead of dying a slow death out in the streets. Now that he made it big, it’s eating you alive because “You were the big dog of Marcy Projects!” He’s eatin, all his real niggas are eatin’ and it’s hard for you to find two pieces of bread to make a peanut butter & jelly sandwich! And as far as Jaz-O goes, he was on Jay-Z’s dick up until a few years ago. He had every opportunity to be on the Roc, simply put, he thought he was too good for the label, and turned down the offer he was given. Tells you how much he really thought about Jay! A real nigga, a true ass friend would have accepted the deal no matter how small and rode it out with him until he was able to make that real paper. Now dude’s mad because he’s not even a has been, he’s a never was, And truthfully it’s all because he thought he could do better. That’s his fault, Not Jay’s. And that is how Jay determined who was a real, true friend or a foe! He has the real niggas he’s supposed to have around him, the real nigga’s who truly supported his career. RIDE OR DIE, if Jay failed they failed, they worked just as hard as he worked, and his success became their success, end of story. Maybe if you were a real true supporter you would’ve been apart of that circle too. That’s how it goes! You can’t be mad at that and truthfully you Can’t Knock His Hustle!

    WHO CARES! I know celebs that were bitches in high school that are doing they thing now. ALL you can do is give ‘em they props! FUck whether or not you sold more drugs than him or whatever. Fact of the matter is you fucked your life up by doing that instead of playing ball and getting money. If you was funding your boy so he could get big and get out the hood, you should be happy that you were instrumental in helping him get out the damn hood. This is why people say the hood don’t love nobody! Jealousy and envy turn blood brothers into sworn enemies! Jay could take all of his money and throw it into Marcy, and someone would feel shorted because he kept a little bit to live off of. I can see it now:
    “Why he ain’t give us all the money!”
    This shit is hating. Be happy for your brother. I understand you might want to know why he did the shit, that has happened to me before with folks I knew from way back when. It bothered me alot, and while my curiosity for WHY they were doing the shit they were doing was eating away at me, it was not gonna change the fact that that was the way they felt at the time and that was how they were gonna act toward me for whatever reason because of how they felt. My best bet was just to leave it as spilled milk(I had to holler at one of my homegirls about it, peace Frances) and maybe that is what you need to d playboy, instead of trying to run your homeboy’s name into the ground. That is some gay shit, real talk, and I don’t even say that shit!

    What makes Dehaven’s words golden? Just because he doing all this crying does that make it true? If what he’s saying was true wouldn’t you think Dame and Biggs would be cosigning this sh*t since they obviously have a problem with Jay too. But they’re not! And the haters believe this sh*t, because being anti-Jay Z is like the cool thing to do now a days. Ok what if Jay wasn’t a big drug lord. He damn sure hustled the industry and now he’s on his way to a Billi! If that ain’t hustling I don’t know what is.

  • Peru

    The nigga Jay Z is rich as hell now, but I doubt the nigga was on some Frank Lucas shit back in the day. Think about the shit, you mean to tell me Jay Z is one of the few niggas to make millions without being pinched, got out the game, and ended up with half a billion in legal money…GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE!!! First, the feds would of got his ass the second he said some shit that was true on a record, aint no artistic immunity if the shit they talkin bout is for real, YOU CAN GET ARRESTED FROM YOUR ALBUMS!!! Second, someone from his own crew would have popped his as by now for leaving the game…I don’t give a fuck what ya’ll say any niggas can get touched, if JFK, MLK, Malcom X, and any other major mutha fucka can get got Jay Z aint invincible…and third, the second a nigga…a NIGGER makes over a million dollars in the dope game, they get put on the feds priority list and are made a major target of the anti terrorism unit. The feds know every single nigga makin real money in the dope game, every move, every sale, every import and export, they just dont bust that ass until its convenient for them, when they need some major political publicity…so please realizem these niggas make alot of money on this music shit, but they didn’t make crumbs in the dope game!!!

    Glasscut Joe, You say this guy is telling the truth. How do you know that? You talking about you are the real gansta. NO, you are a loser on the internet talking about someone who isn’t even aware of you.
    Calvin Klein was in Don Diva saying Jay was real on them streets back in the day. When he came home and Jay-Z didn’t give him a job now Jay-Z became fake. This dude ain’t real he says if Jay-Z took care of him after him first bullshit video they would be fine. I wouldn’t be cool with someone who fucked me over the last 15 years. Dehaven is a whore. Plain & simple and any of you idiots who cosign his bull ain’t from the street. Real man don’t do what Dehaven is doing.

  • i love hip hop

    did jay-z sell drugs — yes cause this fool da-haven said so before on allhiphop a couple months ago jay didn’t give him half his empire.

    did jay-z move wieght like frank lucas —- no

    did jay-z fucked some of his friends over —- yes he did and he is not the frist and he would not be the last to do so.

    does jay-z exaggerate his drug-dealing in his songs—— yes all fucking hip hop artists does.

    to me da haven statements are false about jay-z not being a drug dealer. cause he said that he was a dealer on allhiphop.

    about the jaz-o part—– his beef with jay was that jay was making a name foer himself and his crew and jaz-o felt left out and when jay tried to sign him and sauce money to roc-a-fella they did not like the idea that damon dash would be running their careers

  • phatsam

    you know whats funny a lot of real street dudes fuck with jay because they beleave that he came from the bottom of the dope game and freaked that money to become this succesful dude that he is now and because of that and his swagger jacking ways, and i say that because this dude is te4lling the truth because if he wasnt jay wouldnt feel like he has to respond not at the place were he is at in his life .you jay stans let him get by with im not a writer im a biter now what about him being fake ass nigga that isnt loyal. and this has nothing to do with his rapping skills we all know he is a legend on wax, cd , and tape

    I Cosign Peru and phatsam.That nigga jay wasn’t making no frank lucas type bread and didn’t get touched went to jail or something talking bout he never went to jail he was only detained one time in VA.

  • bk all day

    people shouldn’t really comment on shit they dont kno about……nobody knows the real story behind jay z or any of these niggas except the niggas that was there and everybody’s a liar so we prolly wont ever get the truth

    but every rapper exaggerates but in the late 80′s early 90′s niggas wasnt gettin kingpin bread but alot of brooklyn dudes was takin trips out of town 2 places like upstate ny, deleware, baltimore, and va for a weekend or week or 2 and they would come back wit bread like 20 or 30 g’s depending on how long they stayed or where they went……..u could ask anybody, thats jus a known fact

  • damn

    Oh my god you dudes hate like bitches. Its fuckin entertainment. Of course he aint move big weight. Dont mean he wasnt on the streets. Every single rapper that ever did it exaggerates their shit. Then when a dude really is living what he say you dudes wanna call him a dumb ass like TI. This nigga Dehaven is just like you dudes if you actually woulda known Jay-z. Fuckin hatin cuz someon else made it and it aint you. Fuckin makes me sick. Same people everytime talkin shit about Jay aint this and he aint that. Yet you click on every single fuckin interview and new song and article in this bitch lookin for something to hate on. GET OVER IT!!!

    Ignorant Shit – Jay-Z, American Gangsta

    “So, don’t believe everything your earlobe captures
    It’s mostly backwards, unless it happens to be as accurate as me
    And everything said in song, you happen to see
    Then, actually, believe half of what you see
    None of what you hear, even if it’s spat by me”

    It’s only entertainment ya’ll, like the WWE!! It’s funny to me how muthafuckas listen to this shit and think it’s all real, and everything said on record is accurate. It’s Entertainment Ya’ll wake up! Ya’ll should know damn well none of that shit was true.

    And futhermore, maybe J had to cut this nigga off. Who know? Maybe dude couldn’t leave the hood shit alone. I don’t blame him. Never let anyone fuck with your paper (or your ability to stay out of jail!!!)

  • Krb

    jay is a phoney and always has been! Jay got niggas fool just like asshole bush got America fool! Don’t get me wrong, jay is a good rapper. But everything is a fantasy! It’s all hollywood! He came out with America gangster and rappin bout the things frank Lucas did like he did it! Fantasy people, fantasy!

    • nappy_pappy

      yep its all fantasy…but these cats nowadays take shit to serious… i wasnt around back in the day, but i dont recall anyone takin any artist serious… like the Beatles? they had that song “yellow submarine” i dont think cats were asking them “where is that submarine, can we take a ride in it?” lmaoooo its fantasy just like movies are(excluding the ones that are based on true stories) and even then those might be exagerated somewhat. But i dont see them hounding Bruce Willis like “yo u didnt really kill them guys in die hard did u?” he would be like “wtf? it was a movie, i had a stunt double” lmaooo or jurassic park? i dont see niggas goin up to spielberg like “can we go to that island?” fuckin faggots stop takin shit so serious!!! lol

  • Young Stunna

    That nigga a cold bitch, fakin like he built like that. Niggas know what Jay was doin back in the day on that I 95, so all that bamma shit De-Heaven talkin about is just makin him look bad, it ain’t nothin new though everybody tryin to get rich off sucka shit when they get cut off, let slim keep hatin on Jay, it’s nothin.

  • mee

    R U serious?!!! First of all, some of you are really delusional!! There’s a difference between entertainment & reality! You all take everything way too literal!! You can’t go thinking everything someone says in their music it factual!! U shouldn’t expect it to be! So what if Jay didn’t really push “weight”. Would that make him more respectable as a man than building something from nothing like he has done?!! It’s sad that our communities give more “props” to bull crap, ignorance and simple-mindedness than to raw talent, intelligence and determination. We show more love to the brother coming home off a bid than to a brother home from college on Christmas break. We’re “threatened” and somehow offended by the brothers doing well by doing right. It reminds those of us sitting around on our asses waiting for a hand out, just how lame we actually are. Get it together people!! Stop hating and learn to stand on your own two and stop waiting for other folks to make it so u can ride on their coat tails!!!

  • DaTruth92803

    Some of yall dudes be on here Straight missing the point over this….What if he really did sell dope or what if its all a lie..End of the day.. He aint sell a pill a rock or vile to me a day in my life…Let me say this from what I know of Brooklyn at the time he saying he was there I know some old Heads that say yes Jay was out there in the Game maybe not so heavy in Bed Stuy but Wallet Nosed Shawn as they call him really used to get money way before he was Rhyming..Im a Jay fan Im not a Stan so again it makes me No Never Mind if Dehaven or Anyone else is Telling the Truth or Not Im just putting this outthere

    HELLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!
    This is straight out the mouth of a real nigga!! All that shit bout whether this dude Deahaven a real G is not the issue. Fuck all that, if he hating or not has no weight in the Concerns of this issue at all!!!!Bottom line is whether or not what He telling is the truth Bout Jay-Z history!!!!!!If he is…. yeah J one of the nicest MCs…But he need to shut the fuck up bout all the drug dealing and and Be what he is. I think Jay-Z told on himself by the way he responded he mentioned dude in a song referencing to telling but he has not tryed dude Words about his past!!!!!!!Im not saying For Jay-Z to go tell on himself if he has a checkered past. But if you really Lived this you would let the world know this dude dont know shit or lieing.If not that you need not mention him at all!!!!!!!WHy speak his name to the whole world giving him shine just to say why u dont speak to him.when he calling you a Bold face lier!!!!! All U Play Play gangstas and Thugs on here wake the fuck up!!!!

  • Gofthe7

    Jay-Z did 2things!!!!!!!!
    1.He confirmed that dude Really do know yo ass
    2.And all he did was say why he dont speak to dude but said nothing of dude claims.For some B.S. like that you needed not to immortalize this hater[if he is that] in one of your albums that off the strength of who you r will be apart of the history of hiphop forever!!!!

    STICK YOURSELF!!!!!!!

    I will not debate the fact that most of these Rappers are selling lies and poison. Blame it on the industry. Any ambitious person will do the same and that check from the record company is all the justification needed. JayZ, Shawn, Camel or whatever you choose to call him may not of been the hustler he romanticized about in the streets, but he pimped the shit out of the music industry.

    For clarification purposes only; his music was indeed inspirational when that lifestyle was relevant. Now it’s just Nostalgic. We never sat around and question his authenticity, I knew some cats from Marcy at the time that said he was doing big things but that was after 96. I don’t know Dame (never heard of him before), but other cats he ran with during the early days of RocaFella are the real deal.

    If anything, stating that Jigga is a phony and never did any real dirt only polishes is current image. Once you are that rich, no one is tripping on your past anyway. Tim Allen spent 5 years in prison for coke, do they ever talk about his past? No.
