Today, Jay-Z is worth about half a billion dollars, and although he’s never shied away from rapping about his early career as a drug dealer in New York City, he might be a little more embarrassed about the time he suspected record exec Lance Rivera of bootlegging his upcoming album Vol. 3, and handled the situation like any reasonable, mature, professional artist would: by stabbing Rivera in the stomach at a nightclub party in 1999. As Jay puts it, he “blacked out” in anger after a loud confrontation with Rivera, approaching him after the argument and burying a five inch blade in his midsection.
