Stephon Marbury Doesn't Believe Jay-Z's Advocacy: "You Created Crack Babies"

https://www.hotnewhiphop....o59BGcmdb4

"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," Marbury added. "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."

I note that too often people excuse a 'reformed' drug dealer.
But never consider the actual life damage they set in motion.
How many people 'still' are hooked as a result, while they are moved on
How many people died as a result whether by OD suicide or murder

how many people girls (and boys) were turned out sexually hooked or pulled into the dealing life

How many women were sexually forced to get a hit

How many families were wrought with pain and trauma

How many peoples property were stolen

How many children were neglected and traumatized by a parent(s) who was hooked or dealing
How many people are going through counciling 10-50 yrs later

People don't consider that stuff when they celebrate the reformed drug dealer celeb

He ain't wrong. Any good he is doing isn't elevating him just bringing him back from the lowness he perpetuated. He ravaged his community with full knowledge of what he was doing. That crack rock created an enormous ripple in the river of addiction and left death, destruction and misery in its wake.

So what should Jay Z be doing? Not saying Stephon is wrong or right but I'm curious.

Jay Z has the immunity & the protection of the celebrity worship, he came up with nothing new and they’ll write him off as a hater. Beside Jay Z makes a lot of money for a lot of big wigs who don’t give a damn about the black community, he’s not going down until he’s no longer looked at as an asset/hot commodity.

Only thing he can do now if he isn't already is to contribute dollars back to the community that he sold drugs in--to rehabilitation services, the schools, and to community development programs, the grassroots ones seving the residential community, not investing in building stadiums and such. That could help to repair some of the damage that he perpetuated as a street-drug entrepreneur.

Jay-Z is worth 1 billion dollars. He needs to give back. I agree with everything you are saying.

This argument is really about fighting over a woman. When, thirty years ago? Some negro mess, why am I not suprised. lol

That being said....

Drugs have been apart of American society since the 30s and drugs have been synonymous with musicians / music industry forever. Jay-Z was a drug dealer but there were also buyers. I get tired of people (especially American's) pointing their finger at others for bad choices they make. It takes two there's the seller and there's the user. I never understood why people would go down this road of self-destruction but the human condition is a very strange thing.


I remember the first time I saw heroin needles scattered about Halsted and Roosevelt in Chicago in 67. I went home and told my mother in 24 months heroin flooded my neighborhood like Covid-19. At first my brothers and I thought who'd be this dumb to shoot up that shit? If people were that weak, well and good let them wipe themselves out. Well a decade late we found ourselves (they call them interventions now) being called to help talk friends or a family member to go to detox. I find drug dealers and junkies have two things in common, they're selfish and self-indulgent people.

So, if everyone going to go this far than speak against the people who supported Rap artist that glorified street culture, and violence because these folks helped Jay-z' become billionaire too. We could go on and on with this but Marbury beef is really about fighting over a women twenty/ thirty years ago. confused We are one step away from going bake to Jim Crown and this is the shit he's hand wringing his hands about. The beef is about bruised egos... typical.
