DJ Kool Herc (Clive Campbell)  is suing Jay-Z, developer Bruce Ratner and Barclays bank, filing a “claim of lien” in property records that seeks the money for slavery reparations.  In the claim, Herc said that Mr. Ratner and a Jay-Z worked “in concert” with Barclays, and “profited from the African Slave Trade and continue to profit from these gains, through a conspiracy dating back hundreds of years and continue to date to oppress Black people, enslave them, unlawfully deport them to all corners of the Earth.”  Jay-Z, Ratner, and the Barclays are teamed up in a $4 billion Atlantic Project which they plan to build a Frank Gehry-designed basketball arena for the Nets and more than 6,000 apartments.

    Man, Kool Herc has been smoking too much crack. Alot of these guys allow their jealousy to cause them to do some stupid unwarranted shit. He might as well sue every corporation in the U.S. as they all have benefitted from slavery, sue all caucasiians, as they all have become beneficiaries of the money earned by their foreparents during slavery, as most blacks have inherited the lack that their foreparents had during slavery. This shit could go on and on…yet this guy must be just using Jays name to bring some attention to his bullshit. Jay is creating jobs for young brothers, sisters, young people of all color. He is doing his thing and it is benefitting others. Guys like Kool Herc just wants to use his name to get some coverage.
