Swizz Beatz Shares Hov Pics
The frequent Jigga collaborator, who first worked with him on the 1998 album Vol 2…Hard Knock Life, took to Instagram with a dope series of flicks. He revealed the two were together, and followers could only ask for new music but also speculate that based off of his caption, it might be coming soon.
“We must celebrate each other more just because 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉 The fact that we woke up today is a plus 🙏🏽 Blessings 🤲🏾 HOV SB since 98 🍾”
JAY-Z Starts $10M Fund
The music mogul is helping out big time. Young Hov has reportedly upped the ante and created a massive fund to help out a very herbal line of Black-owned businesses. Hov has started a $10 million fund for Black-owned cannabis companies. He’s giving the money to startups in hopes of increasing participation in the industry.
The rapper and entrepreneur says he is motivated by an imbalance in the marijuana business: People of color, who have been disproportionately punished for involvement in the drug where it is illegal, comprise only a small number of those making money from the multibillion-dollar market in legalized pot.

JAY-Z Makes Big Moves With MONOGRAM
Chalk up another industry takeover for JAY. The legendary lyricist has his hands in all kinds of business ventures — his latest being a cannabis company called MONOGRAM, which recently made a big announcement. After unveiling the new company a few months ago, Jigga is now showing off MONOGRAM’s first line of products.
“Cannabis has been around for thousands of years, yet it is still an industry whose legacy of skilled craftmanship is often overlooked,” said JAY-Z. “I created MONOGRAM to give cannabis the respect it deserves by showcasing the tremendous hard work, time and care that go into crafting a superior smoke. MONOGRAM products are next level when it comes to quality and consistency and we’re just getting started.”
Faizon Love Says JAY-Z Made Up His Past
From the “Mo Money, Mo Problems” files, JAY-Z was recently pressed about his past thanks to Hollywood actor Faizon Love. The comedy veteran made some serious accusations that Shawn Carter was never the drug dealer he claimed to be before he got into the rap game.
“JAY-Z creates this drug dealing, drug lord, ‘I’ma drug dealer, I’ma drug lord.’ These kids are like, ‘We gotta do it, too.’ Not knowing that this is all made-up s***.”
