Jay-Z Allegedly Involved in War With Condo Tenants

Residents–past and present–at a luxury apartment building in Philadelphia say Jay-Z is trying to kick them out.

Both current and former tenants of the 603 North American Street condominium complex, which is partly owned by Jay-Z, say that Hov’s legal team has been pestering them into trying to get them to give up and vacate the premises, FoxNews.com reported.

Two years ago, the 24-unit condo complex was purchased by SCC North American Realty, LLC, which is partially owned by Shawn Carter, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. It seems like Jay’s team is trying to get the tenants to move so he can raise rents on the units.

“The whole thing has been so unsettling,” former tenant Liza Tedeschi told FoxNews.com. “I’ve been in tears over this.”

Jay-Z’s attorney didn’t return multiple calls and emails in response to FoxNews.com’s report. –Jakinder Singh

      I know you were trying to crack jokey jokes…but condos have monthly maintenance fees, not rent…those people there have a choice to sell the dwelling and move…OR the board can vote to send them walking papers…

      mom dukes or sis living in an apt with the kids don’t have options like that

      it’s like this…

      this vehicle called the internet allows someone to have a voice…make some serious worldwide connections…you know, be able to actually do something you cannot do within your region…but most choose to play around and crack jokes…or state something oblivious to the fact, most likely because they don’t know how things really go in the boardrooms.

      Like I stated, landlords have been doing this for YEARS…but of course there’s no outrage for them when they do it to struggling families or seniors…it’s jay, a rap guy, so the fingers start typing…

      I still say release the names of this condo board to the people…and stop acting like Jay is actually there at this PA condo place doing dirt…how can he be at award shows, overseas, and still be in PA & NYC with the restaurant and the union pickets making all of these decisions at the same time?

      But alas the asinine comments will be posted…

    to be fair it says jay zs lawyers not the man himself
    i think landlords should b more merciful towards tenants who fail to pay the rent on time as long as they are not the type of people that trash the joint or deal drugs
    it does sound suss in jays lyrics that he talked about ripping off his own people
    although this could b a reference to people who did wrong to him in the past rather than a general dissing of his people
    the trouble is when u are not specific u leave urself open for interpretation
    all news services have their moments of hyperbole
