Jay-Z never sold crack to his mother but he did shoot his brother. In the song “You Must Love Me” from Jay-Z’s In My Lifetime, Vol. 1 album, he gives his mother a shout out for motivating him. The rapper then says, “What I do? I turned around and sold you crack.” He explains that he wasn’t talking about his mother. The lyric was a metaphor for all the mothers he sold crack to when he was a drug dealer.
Jay-Z shot his brother for stealing his ring
In “You Must Love Me” Jay-Z also discusses shooting his own brother: “Saw the devil in your eyes, high off more than weed, confused, I just closed my young eyes and squeezed.” When Jay was 12 his older brother, Eric stole his ring. Jay was furious so he went to a friend’s house to get a gun. Jay shot Eric in his shoulder.

The tweet below discusses numerous mistakes from Jay-Z’s past. He has come a long way.
Jay Z snaked or turn his back more than half of his peers in the industry, stabbed a nigga for selling bootlegs of his album, shot his brother, sold crack to his own mother, and y’all think he give a fuck about Beyonce?

The following tweet is absolutely correct:
Jay Z never sold crack to his mother… he was speaking about mothers in general; a metaphor ….. he did shoot his brother tho

Some people give Jay credit for shooting his brother:
I knew Jay Z was real ass nigga when I heard he shot his brother

We think that’s all Jay’s secrets but the screenshot below shows that there might be more. MTO claims that the rapper will be the next entertainer to be exposed for his scandalous ways. Multiple women recently exposed Russell Simmons so I’m hoping Jay’s safe.
