Cuomo Has Policing Powwow with Rap Mogul (and Ex-Crack Dealer)

Aaron Short et al., Page Six, December 10, 2014

When you need advice on a subject, you go to an expert.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo did just that when he had a policy meeting on the subject of how cops enforce the laws with hip-hop mogul Jay Z–who earned most of his expertise in crime as a crack dealer.

The governor’s spokeswoman, Melissa DeRosa, on Wednesday described their confab in Cuomo’s Midtown office as “productive.’’

The two discussed “a top-to-bottom review of the criminal justice system and how we can all work together to pass a reform package,” she said.

The rapper built his musical career on songs about his past criminal exploits slinging crack in Brooklyn’s Marcy housing project.

One online report lists 187 references to crack or cocaine on his 12 solo albums, including last year’s chart-topping “Magna Carta Holy Grail.”

In addition to his rap boasts about drug dealing, his criminal justice experience includes being charged with stabbing people and bashing them on their heads with bottles at his favorite city nightclubs.


In addition to meeting with Jay Z, Cuomo has conferred in recent days with NYPD union chief Pat Lynch and hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons, DeRosa said.

During a Wednesday news conference outside City Hall, Simmons said Cuomo “made a commitment to immediately promote an executive order to get special prosecutors for any of these cases where police brutality is charged.”

“Today is the beginning of the end of police policing police,” the Def Jam Recordings co-founder added.

A rep for Cuomo disputed Simmons’ account of their conversation, saying, “While the governor didn’t promise to appoint an interim special prosecutor, the two discussed the possibility–among others–and a range of options to take up during the legislative session.”

  • Shawn Carter can critique the police because of his ability to create disjointed rhymes. Oh yea.

    • Reynardine

      No, that argument actually makes sense in the black mind.

      • MannyR

        What doctors, scientists and executives are to whites, rappers, pimps and killers are to blacks.

  • His crack dealing was probably the seed money for his “music” career.

    “Today is the beginning of the end of police policing police,” the Def Jam Recordings co-founder added.

    What he really means is that it’s the end of police.

      You never know…

    Libtards getting down and dirty with criminal retards. The lunatics have really taken over the asylum.

  • Yves Vannes

    This is even dumber than his insistence that insurance companies pay for sex change operations.

    Whatever JayZ did, it doesn’t match up to Cuomo’s crimes as Clinton’s HUD secretary:

    When Cuomo was secretary, HUD reported that $59 billion was missing

    When Cuomo was secretary, HUD reported that $59 billion was missing. It couldn’t say where they money went, because it failed to produce audited financial statements.

    After Cuomo was nominated for the post, he lied in a form filed with the Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee by failing to admit that he had been under investigation by federal banking regulators for bank fraud, for participating in a group that surreptitiously tried to take over a Florida savings bank. Attorney General Janet Reno, who had spent at least $9 million in a four-year investigation of Cisneros’s girlfriend problem, declined to look into Cuomo’s link to bank fraud.

      Corruption is the death of the American dream and ideal our founders started.

  • Reynardine

    ‘“Today is the beginning of the end of police policing police,” the Def Jam Recordings co-founder added.’

    And consequently, the beginning of the end of effective police corps. Morale is SUPREMELY IMPORTANT with all combat, policing, and military units. If you realize that other police do not have your back, you’re not going to risk anything. Police will become an impotent force, like in South Africa.

    Train hard, train well, form up local militia units. Teach your children to train hard. We’re going to need ’em.

  • Ronald

    As if the cops were not politicized enough already…

  • MartelsGhost

    Someone please explain how things got this bad. This has forever been about criminals convincing the larger percentage of good people to give up their rights and freedoms in exchange for criminals being in charge.

    The mere notion that “we’re better than that” must be done away with. With are handicapping ourselves. I say we give them a glimpse at what it means to really act exactly how they think we act. Brutality in defense of ones people is no vice but cowardice certainly is……………………

    It’s time to let the berzerkers loose………………

    • MannyR

      You know how things got this bad but this website doesn’t allow us to name them openly. Cause we ” need to take responsibilty”… Yeah ok.

      • MartelsGhost

        Thats another thing. Why are only the White oriented websites the ones that practice self-censorship. I’ve seen plenty of “kill whitey” websites that openly advocate for killing White men women children and babies. Heck for the last couple of weeks WorldStar has had a video at the top of their page that shows two thug-rapper wannabes pointing pistols in the face of a fake white NYPD officer.

        Why do we fall into the same rut of convincing ourselves that “We’re better than that kind of stuff.”? As if we should be proud of being so pacified that the mere idea of necessary violence is something to be scorned.

        It’s like watching a boxing match between a huge White guy and a little wimpy black guy and seeing the White guy take punch after punch after punch while muttering apologies for even thinking about punching back. The attitude of we win once they agree to be peaceful.


        They are the Joker. They just want to watch the world burn and steal some cigarettes.

        • MannyR

          Same nonsense over at Dailystormer. I was banned for posting what I thought should be done to the family members of the lil Black murder who killed David Dunlop and his wife. Were all supposed to preach non violent solutions and talk gentlemen like. That worked wonders for the business owners in a Ferguson. As for Amren maybe Mr. Taylor would like to clarify why certain groups cant be spoken ill of. Truthfully I assume we’re not allowed to make threats because the FBI monitors these websites constantly.

          • MartelsGhost

            And the FBI have nobody better to monitor? Why waste time monitoring us anyway? It’s easy pickings over at Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, WorldStar etc. No need to do anything other than scroll through a few posts……………

            And I always thought selectively monitoring a group of people based on the color of their skin was somehow…oh what’s the word……..oh yeah……racist. How anyone can combat racism by engaging in racist practices is beyond me.

            The bottom line is it should all be equal. They hate. We hate. They threaten. We threaten. They punk out. We follow through.

            Turn it loose and see who wins.

  • john maverick

    Why would some rich scumbag’s opinion matter to anyone ?
    They act like he cured polio or had some profound impact on the world.
    Its like Miss Manners talking etiquette with a hooker,comically ridiculous.

    • IstvanIN

      A hooker could have very good manners, I am sure the Mayflower Madam did. Jay-Z, not very likely.

  • Dana

    Listening to that fool ( the ex-crack dealer) is like listening to a fortune teller with a glass ball

    • See The Future

      Cuomo is the fool

    • Who Me?

      Jay-Z (what a stupid name!) ought to be jailed for his narcotic trafficking crimes, and he ought to be hung for daring to date, wed and impregnate a white*ish* whore like the head Kartrashian.

      • bilderbuster

        The only thing “White*ish* about his whore is that she wears blonde wigs and weaves.

        • Who Me?

          Well, she claims to be Armenian, and some people say that Armenians are White. The whole bunch have got Jungle fever though, including the stepdad–who is apparently trying to turn himself into a woman… Mental problems, I tell ya.

          • bilderbuster

            You be confoozed. Jay-Z be married to Beyonce who wear White womenz hair on her hayd. Kanye West be Kim’s man and BabyDaddy fo her baby.

          • Who Me?

            Oh well, I beez White, they all looks alike to my ray-ciss blue eyes…. Yeah, Bouncy is the darker one, and the Kartrashian is the one with the ginormous rear end…. Who cares.

  • Michigan Patriot

    Probably his penis as well; celebrate perverted homosexuality is the Gov.’s mantra !

  • Diamond_Lil

    Yes, we should have mildly retarded men advising us on legal procedure.

  • MannyR

    I’ve posted before that I consider the US to be a moral and cultural cesspool. I’ve been called a whiner, traitor, loser and been told to leave if I don’t like it. Please inform me of any country I can start the immigration process to that does not allow Rappers and criminals to ” pow wow ” with elected leaders. It’s a lost cause people. Your sons and daughters see this as progress.

  • See The Future

    In the glories past of swing bands and Motown music blacks had great talent with instruments and vocals. Carried themselves with considerable dignity.

    The black rappers of today have no musical talent whatsoever.

  • IKUredux

    Seriously, I for the life of me can’t understand why Jayz doesn’t reference the comparable African document to the Magna Carta? Hmmm, must be an honest oversight on his part. We are all equal! Regardless of anything that might suggest otherwise. Oh, wait! I forgot about White privilege! You know, the latest excuse to get around the fact that White people are biologically smarter. I consider this “White privilege” crap, just a ploy to head us off at the pass of mounting scientific evidence that can no longer be suppressed.

    Oh, by the way, TPTB, we Whites already knew that Blacks were dumber than poop.

  • benvad

    Time to arm ourselves.

  • justa nothernigger

    only in nig-murika can some chimpanzee racist rapper criminal rape ape , who has admittedly sold narcotics , robbed people at gunpoint , and killed rival negroids, be in the white house and advising politicians on how the police should do their jobs.
    who even wants to live in America anymore?

  • Nothing says competence better than getting one’s policies from a rap star!

  • guest

    There seem to be two issues woven together here? That Cuomo would seek to harvest votes and campaign contributions by “dancing” with Blacks and the MSM is sadly hardly political news. But it is true that criminals do know a a very significant amount about policing that most policemen do not know much about. And the able , redeemable criminals usually see deeper, more quickly, into the actual gears and pulleys of the criminal “justice” system than most police do. In truly professional police departments, many administrators for years have developed close, if necessarily circumscribed, relationships with professional criminals.

    Easily misunderstood from a distance, this sort of communication can be commendable and productive. A free society can do no more than “take a bite out of crime”. We have no choice but to understand it well enough to be able to live with it. (Like a mother-in-law)

  • Paleoconn

    This scumbag anti-musician and his whorish wife also met with the royal couple. If the British royals hadn’t jumped the shark before, they have now.

    Limo liberals like Cuomo and DeBlasio love consorting with blacks to elevate their street cred. It also gives them anti-racist bona fides.
