Jay-Z has been known for helping people financially without wanting anything in return. Lately, it has been revealed that Jay-Z cleared Ruff Ryder’s debt for Def Jam, which was 12 million dollars.
This surprised fans of Jay-Z because at one point Jay-Z and Ruff Ryders have not always been on good terms. With Jay-Z clearing a Ruff Ryder debt, it shows that they are now over their disagreement and are moving past it.
Jay-Z has a successful career in the hip hop arena however, it wasn’t always like that. When Ruff Ryders started his lineup, DMX, was when Jay-Z and Ryder were in disagreement especially when HOV became president of the lineup. All of that drama was irrelevant when Jay-Z left the label and released his sixth studio album, Year of the Dog…Again, on Columbia Records in 2006.
“X was in debt over there. He probably owed about $12 million, He met with Jigga when DMX left Def Jam for Sony and Hov “released him and wiped off the debt clean.”
What do you think of Jay-Z helping DMX?
