There’s no denying Jay Z will go down as one of hip-hop’s greatest rappers/moguls ever, but of course, there’s always been funny war stories that come up every so often from his older days – take this one for example. During a recent interview on N.O.R.E.’s Drink Champs podcast, Memphis Bleek shared a hilarious story about the time Jay punished his fellow passengers for not pumping gas.
“I remember we did a show at Syracuse,” Bleek said. “I’m 14, can’t even drive, no license, nothing. It’s a couple niggas in the car, I forgot who was with us. So Jay, he pull over to the gas station like ‘Yo somebody get out and pump the gas.’ Nobody wanted to get out and pump the gas cause it’s freezing. We’re in Syracuse, it’s snowing like a motherfucker. So Hov’s like, ‘Alright, I’ma pump the gas.’ He pumps the gas, n****a goes in the trunk though, don’t tell nobody nothin, comes out the trunk with his big ass coat on. Jumps in the car and do 200 on the highway with the windows DOWN. ‘Y’all n****s don’t wanna pump gas? Aight.’”
