Jaz-O Talks Hov Shooting His Older Brother When He Was 12!!

Jay-Z's mentor Jaz-O talked about the time Hov shot his older brother when he was only 12 years old.

"Yeah, I can't remember, but it was a shot to not fatally wound but just, you know. To be honest, I don't think [Jay] was aiming to really hit him, in his defense. And it was my gun. He didn't have the gun so he could go and shoot his brother. It was a thing back then," he said.

"You got some arms, you got guns or got a gun, that was a sign of brotherhood with the street. I had no idea for what reason and I don't think that was the purpose, I'm sure that wasn't the purpose he wanted the gun, but that's just how it turned out."

"In the song, 'You Must Love Me', he talked about how he ran to my crib. He ran to my crib because you bust a gun, I don't care who you are, you get nervous," Jaz said. "You get nervous and you need somewhere to run to, so I guess he was like, 'Let me run over to this n*gga's house and drop this sh*t off for worst case scenario.' So he came up there and dropped it off and everything."
