The release of Jaz-O’s Immobilaire album “Kingz Kounty” on D&D Records is accompanied by rumours of a beef between Jaz-O and his former protegee Jay-Z. Even though Jay-Z is featured on the Immobilaire single and video “Let’s Go”, the album track “Love Is Gone” sounds slightly different. At the same time there are sources claiming that It Ain’t Personal from the Jay-Z and R.Kelly-collabo-album “Best of Both Worlds” is directed at Jaz-O.

Jaz-O, formely known as Big Jaz aka the Originator, gave Jay-Z his first break with a feature on his single “Hawaiian Sophie” on EMI Records in the early 9ties. At that time Jaz-O was following the traditions of positive pro-black groups like Poor Righteous Teachers, KRS, PE and X-Clan with his his own sounds. After being dropped by EMI Jaz-O made his comeback as the producer for Jay-Z’s breakthrough singles “In My Lifetime (Remix)” and “Ain’t No Nigga” before working with Puffy and Rakim.

Jaz-O’s “Kingz Kounty” hit the stores on April 15th and doesn’t need this kind of “cross promotion”
