Former Jay-Z associate and late ‘90s hip-hop “could have been” Sauce Money said in a recent interview that he’s not surprised that Roc-A-Fella Records fell apart, since the label was unable to keep pace with Hova’s ambition. Via Hip-Hop DX:
“I’m pretty sure that’s devastating. I’m pretty sure they established a bond, a close rapport with each other. I’m pretty sure it’s devastating. Am I surprised? Absolutely not,” he said. “I was gone early. But from the time that I was there, I didn’t see how it could last. Eventually, if nothing else but for a business move on Jay’s behalf, because at the end of the day it’s like, OK, we reached a certain plateau and Jay’s a very ambitious person. It’s only right that he can totally eat off himself and not break up his money three ways, because at the end of the day, he was really carrying the shit.”
He went on to say that Jaz-O – another Jay’s early-career collaborators, who’s since gone on to trade lyrical barbs with Jigga – is “a piece of shit.”
“He’s a piece of shit. Without getting too deep into it, he’s kind of a two-faced kind of nigga. He’ll back-bite you about a nigga, and then when he get with the nigga, they do the same… He just a type of individual – and I don’t wish him no harm, but I don’t wish him well, either. They don’t know the type of nigga that he is. Fuck him, man.”
Jesus Sauce, don’t hold back on us.
