Michael Jordan Denies Attending Party Dissing Rappers, N.O.R.E. Responds With Photo
SOURCE| NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK – N.O.R.E.’s podcast appearances are on an untouchable win streak.
First there was the time when the Capone-N-Noreaga member claimed the late Big Pun walloped Jay Z with a champagne bottle (a claim that prompted to Jigga to cold call him the day after Thanksgiving) and now, there’s an alleged incident where he was at a Def Jam Christmas function where he overheard Michael Jordan scoff at the mere notion of socializing with rappers who weren’t in his tax bracket. (Or ones not named Jay Z.)
“[MJ] said, ‘Fuck rap.’ I seen the nigga say that…Quote me,” N.O.R.E. told the Rap Radar podcast, recalling how artists such as Method Man and Redman were waiting their chance to speak to the NBA’s G.O.A.T.
Jordan’s longtime rep, Estee Portnoy, felt the need to respond seeing that the story went viral across rap and sports publications alike and unsurprisingly, the Jumpman camp are calling bullshit.
“MJ wasn’t at this party, doesn’t know N.O.R.E., and is a fan of ALL music,” she tells TMZbefore adding “Drake is in his brand, and Nelly is a partner of his with the Charlotte Hornets.”
A couple of quick Google searches later, N.O.R.E. found images of the Christmas party he was referring to; Mariah Carey’s 2002 Charm Bracelet album release party.
