In an interview with the UK Guardian, Jay-Z admits at least one of the scenarios is %100 fact. At the age of 12, he shot his crack addicted older brother over a stolen ring.
“I thought my life was over. I thought I’d go to jail for ever.” Hov said “It was terrible. I was a boy, a child. I was terrified.”
Luckily the bullet hit his brother in the shoulder and wasn’t a life threatening wound. When Hov visited him in the hospital, his brother apologized for stealing the ring and didn’t press charges against him.
In the interview Jay goes on to describe how prevalent guns were at that time in his neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. A problem that has only gotten worse in every hood across America.
“Guns were everywhere. You didn’t have to go far to get one. Just everywhere,” he said. “Guns were around every day. There were shootouts, but I never shot anyone else. Most people in shootouts don’t get shot.“
Jigga claims he was shot at three times, but never hit. “It’s like there was some rogue angel watching over us,” he said.

A teen in Queens, New York will never walk again after being shot by the son of an officer.
According to published reports Kamesha Williams was at a friend’s house in Bed-Stuy on May 29, 2009, when Evan Bryant and another teen started horsing around with a gun that belonged to Bryant’s father, a NYPD officer.
Although the gun from the shooting was never found, Bryant was convicted of possession of a concealed weapon and sentenced to nine years in prison, but with new developments in the case, Williams and her family are filing a lawsuit against the New York police department for the incident.
According to Williams lawyer, the bullet that pierced William’s right side causing the paralysis can’t be removed, however a piece was able to be removed and authorities are hoping that the fragment will lead them to the gun’s owner.
“We’re seeking meaningful compensation for Kamesha and her mom.”
