Jay-Z Denies Chris Brown Rumor, Starts Possible Beef With Vulture


Jay-Z has addressed the report that he had Chris Brown booted from the BET Awards for the first time on Tim Westwood's radio show, saying "That's the silliest rumor I ever heard … I was really sitting back and just watching all these suckers comment. Let me categorically deny that — that's not even my style. If I have a problem with Chris Brown, I have a problem with Chris Brown. I haven't said anything … I don't agree with what he did, and that's it. That's it. That's the end of it."

Also, in between calling The Game a "groupie" a bunch of times and spitting a few underwhelming lines from his new Kanye– and Rihanna–featuring single "Run This City" (out on Friday), he threw what we now believe to be thinly veiled shots our way, claiming that the Chris Brown rumor gained traction because "with all this technology, all the goofy people pick it up and they turn it into fact." Woah ... goofy? Watch it, Hov.
