Jay-Z Responds To Foxy Brown & Teairra Marì

Published: Tuesday 2nd Sep 2008 by Sam
Jay-Z Responds To Foxy Brown & Teairra Marì Jay-Z has broken his silence on comments made him by both Foxy Brown and Teairra Marì:

“As far as Foxy or Teairra Marì, these are people that I have given chances to. It’s understandable that they would be upset, but you got to look at it from my point of view as well. I gave Teairra Marì the same shot I gave Rihanna. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t.”

“You know that stuff is going to happen, eventually it’s going to happen. What I’m happy about is, that no matter what people say, no one has ever said that I am dishonest or that I have taken one dime from them . . . I’ve never cheated anyone out of a dime. No one’s ever said that, right?” {Source}

Kudos to Jay for not getting messy with his response. I guess he does have a point…

    I am sure Teairra chose no daddy as the next single? I am soo sure. He tried to market her a certain way and it failed. He grown he can’t even admit that. He and other people at the record label tried to do something and it didn’t work. Whatever. There artist and you were there boss. If they really talk greasy about you they risk a chance of getting blackballed in the industry never to work in it again. I am glad Teairra is getting a second chance at interscope. Maybe with good singles and videos she can prove that she can hold her own in the music industry. We will see.

    I don’t understand… what has or did Foxy Bron recently say regarding Jay-Z…….

    U know Teairra Mari has to be upset because, in 2005 it was basically her vs. Rihanna. Same age, and label. And Rihanna somehow has became extremely successful……. Not saying she doesn’t deserve it, but I surly am surprised how many singles she’s had do extremely well…

    I am so glad daddy Jay came out to shut all you haters up, as soon as Tierra Marie dogged RIRI everyone was on the band wagon, it just goes to show you how much pull he has because everyone is going to say he is right which he is but common sense would be it just didn’t work for her, for whatever reason, and not to hate on RIRI like she did. She is played!!! GO RIRI!!!!!

    RiRi open those legs to jayz that why she did better off than the other girl. Foxy was hot when her and jay had a relationship. Tierra will come back hot and show jay who he should have kept. Plus she just did one cd. RiRi done did three so you be the judge!!!!!!!!!

    You’re the pathetic one stanning for a girl who has zero talent. That girl is all image and nothing else. Even her die hard fans know it’s the truth. Do you hear that? lol Rihanna is not some invincible natural born talent resistant to competition. If Teairra has the right team behind her, she can do just as well if not better than Rihanna. That’s all Rihanna has is good marketing. Any girl with marginal talent and decent looks can follow her formula and become successful.

    Teriia Mari persoanlly, appeared more talented than Rihanna when they both came out. She has the better voice. What went wrong? I agree with some above Rihanna had to do something. Thye probably didn’t like each other with the rebutle T had.

    I don’t want to speak on Foxy. But Jay-Z said he never cheated anybody out of money? What about those 40/40 club workers?

    Not related to the post but Rihanna being broke? I CAN SEE THAT. She is ALWAYS shopping.

    wow as i remember teairra got way more promotion than rihanna was jay in her first video was she call the first lady of the roc? so why throw all that salt on rihanna’s name if she is all image and no talent then teairra marie should have the same success cause she is just as pretty as rihanna.

    tierra was marketed sooo wrong its not even funny and i guess thats the growing pains of running the show. jays team in my opinion at teh time was never good at marketing rnb jzy z has had people in his camp for years that had talent in singing but couldnt market them IE Reel. But seems lesson was learned with RiRi. I mean the proof is in the pudding. regardless what talent we think she has thye hit it on the nail with marketing her correctly from the start. Foxy please i dont know what to say at this poitn about her. I mean she has fizzled down so low that even with a super marketing team who would want to buy her stuff anyways. I have my feelings on Jayz but business wise he did the right moves to ensure his ventures and team were sucessfull.

    look at big five head rihanna had to get jayz to defend her i think they could have marketed her better rihanna had to open her barados tuna fish to get to the top tierra has a wayyyyyyyyyyy better voice then rihanna and that’s a fact neyo had to teach her to be a better sing and it still failed cause she was a thoat sing *coughs* *dyk suker* rihanna had to suck her way to the top yall better listen to the beyonce song she aint playin heyyyyyyyyy.

    Teairra Mari is the bomb. I found it unfortunate that people had to look down upon her because she says the “n” word or swear in general. At the time she was a teenager but I want people to know that teenage girls do swear. The Rihanna debate… I firmly believe that rihanna is a puppet and she is talentless. Teairra Mari will murder Rihanna.

    I jus gotta say rihanna’s vocals are sometimes off.. sometimes its overtuned.. and for teirra..iv no comment. Needs to release more songs.

    terria does have the better voice, however her marketing was wrong. now the foxy situation. jay knows better than to even go in on that one.
    yeah he was hot bak in the day, but aint no n**** put his ass on the map w the majors. and for him to jus diss fox is dead ass wrong.

    I never really read anywhere about Teairra Mari dissing Jay-Z. They asked her what the relationship was like between her and Jay and she simply said there wasn’t one. And she also even said she was marketed wrong. She said she shouldn’t have been 16/17 with a parental advisory sticker on her album. I think people are forgetting that when you are a new artist you have no voice. You are given the writers and producers your label want you to have. Also your label is the one picking your singles. And their is no way in hell No Daddy should have been a single. They should of kept it moving with Phone Booth or M.V.P.

    I feel like Jay-z only thinks about the money aspect of things, as you can see in his statment. I’m not for sure what happen between him and Foxy, but Teairra Mari had a chance. A good manger and marketer would had acknownledge the fact that he messed up and was pushing Rihanna more. She had the look but not the voice. Teairra wanted to finish high school. They really only need one star. Jay-z might want to take his own advice “You can pay for school, but you can’t buy class.” Well, he didn’t finish high school, and he sure doesn’t have any Class.
