Stephon Marbury is revisiting his old feud with Jay-Z, calling Hov fake and explaining the origins of their beef.
In a newHeavyinterview, the former NBA star says he looks at his longtime rival as something of a fraud. “You’re not an advocate for Black people, you sold drugs to Black people and you rapped about it and talked about it. How do you do that?… This ain’t snitching, you told on yourself already. You already told people what it is that you do and how you do it and how you feel about what you’re doing… You sold drugs to people where you’re from, Jay-Z, in Brooklyn in Marcy [Projects], you got them on crack -- whatever it is, cocaine, whatever it is that you were selling to them. Whatever you say you was ‘cooking up’, that’s what you did. So now, you got your people high, you sold drugs to people that was pregnant, now you created crack babies -- these same babies that are going out killing grandparents... I’m confused. But that’s what it is. That’s what happened.”
So what led to Jay-Z dissing him on 2003’s “La-La-La (Excuse Me Miss Again)?” Apparently they were both in a club when Jay-Z saw Marbury dancing with a woman they both knew.
