Michael Jordan Denies Blowing Off Rappers And Meeting N.O.R.E
The infamous story known as “Michael Jordan hating rap music” has come to an abrupt end by the man himself.
A rep for Jordan spoke to TMZ just a few days after N.O.R.E.’s interview with Rap Radar. During his sit down with B-Dot and Elliott Wilson, N.O.R.E. revealed Jordan was disinterested in any rapper not named Jay Z, and did so by saying “F–k rap” at a Def Jam holiday party.
Number 23 allegedly blew off Redman and Method Man who wanted to meet him. “That s–t hurt me,” he said. “Def Jam Christmas party, Mariah Carey hosting and s–t like that. He only spoke to Hov, but he spoke to Hov. That’s without a doubt.”
In addition to the rap snub, the rapper added that MJ refused to have his image used in the Hype Williams-directed video for his 99′ single, “Oh No.”
Jordan’s rep denied every aspect of the rapper’s story stating, “MJ wasn’t at this party, doesn’t know N.O.R.E., and is a fan of ALL music.” She added that some of the mogul’s biggest business partners are rappers. “Drake is in his brand, and Nelly is a partner of his with the Charlotte Hornets.”
Truth hurts, except when you aren’t sure who is telling the real story.
