DeHaven Addresses Jay-Z Calling Him A Snitch On “No Hook”
They had grown up in the projects, thick as thieves. However, when Dehaven caught a case from the feds, he claims Jay-z disappeared. In his interview with Vlad Tv, he says he felt abandoned. He also addresses Jay calling him a snitch on his American Gangster track, ‘No Hook’.
“So f*ck DeHaven for caving, that’s why we don’t speak / Made men ain’t supposed to make statements / End of the story, I followed the code, cracked the safe / Other n*ggas ain’t in the game so they practice hate,” Jay rapped on the song. Vlad outright asked DeHaven what led up to the scathing lyrics. DeHaven began by letting out a heavy sigh.
“That was about the YouTube,” he said. “I did a YouTube years ago when I lashed out on him. I lashed out on him. Hardbody on him. So, that was the answer and the reaction to that YouTube, and that was it… He come back and said I was a snitch.”
DeHaven added that we all have witnessed how the culture has recently been affected by news of snitching. “I think it was a death sentence if you call somebody that,” he said of Jay’s accusation.
“I understood where he came from and where the anger came from,” Dehaven continued. He’s often asked if he would take back the words he said in the infamous YouTube video, and he answered he would. However, he still would have communicated his frustration with the situation but “it would be the same in a different language.”
“I don’t know if he really knew how much that hurt me,” he stated. “But, I knew it hurt him, what I said.” Later on in the conversation, DeHaven did note that Jay shouldn’t feel as if he’s “too big” to be questioned about spreading a rumor, because it’s a serious accusation in the streets that DeHaven doesn’t take lightly.
