Jay-Z Hooks Grandma Up For Her B-Day+Ashanti Speaks On Nelly Denying Her

Jay-Z has always spoken about his close ties to his grandma.  And this week, he and the Mrs. laced her with some sweet birthday gifts.  Details, plus Ashanti's take on Nelly denying their relationship when you read on...

Shawn Carter knows how to dote on his granny.  He and his wife Beyonce threw his grandma Hattie (pictured above at the Yankees game) a lavish 85th birthday bash this week--that included a Rolls Royce, fab eats, and dancing.  According to the NY Post:

Jay-z is a good grandson. For the 85th birthday of his grandmother, Hattie, the Brooklyn-born hip-hop mogul and his wife, Beyoncé, picked her up in a Rolls-Royce and took her to the Liberty Warehouse in Red Hook, a space with stunning views of the Statue of Liberty. The guests were entertained by dancers from the Boys & Girls Club when they weren't dancing themselves or devouring the Southern cooking.
 

Sweet!

 

In other news, after we posted this interview of Nelly denying ever having a "relationship" with Ashanti, it spread on the net like wildfire.  Now, Ashanti herself feels the need to throw in her two cents.  She decided to co-sign everything Nelly said:

 

Sigh. Honestly kid, we don't believe you either.  You need more people.  But we just don't really care enough anymore--so all this protesting makes the situation even more lame.  Just sayin'.

Wow! did you hear the tone in her voice... it musta been a bad break up! LMAO... Ashanti seems to be upset at the fact she wasn't claimed. Don't be mad girl! Nelly pulled that rabbit from a hat. That what guys do when their hurt because they really can't explain their behavior. Yea girl, it's sad...

okay are they trying to play

okay are they trying to play this Jay Z and beyonce bull#$%%? Maybe it's best that she complies with his story in case he get another chick pregnant while he's dating her. Maybe she could write a song about this that may make her relevant again. So she's saying that she was just screwing him all those years in addition to other women for no relevant reason, she was the jump off. If he respected her he never would have commented on the question. She's so "young". He must be good! That must of been the Illuminati part of Nelly speaking out. Jay Z and Beyonce worship with the secret society illuminati ? Is that what the pyramid sign over the left eye means ? WOW! google black illuminati masonics celebrities it tells a lot that folk aren't aware of.

Well Ashanti, honestly, you

Well Ashanti, honestly, you might want him to claim you. No man should have the perks of a relationship without being in a relationship. I made that mistake of not allowing what was going on to be labeled and trust, they will leave you high and dry for someone else- usually a downgrade and it just upsets you later. Good luck though..it may work for you.

Jay does love his

Jay does love his grandmother. She used to lived around the corner from me in the same senior citizen's building that my mom lived. He used to come to the block parties. His grandmother moved from the apartment three years ago. Beautiful person. I am glad he dotes on her.

I remember old pics of Nelly

I remember old pics of Nelly and Ashanti on vacation together, and a pic of her sitting on his lap and even an article where she hinted at a possible engagement. I understand trying to keep a relationship low key but “Come on man” the cats out the bag with this one. Everybody knows she broke his heart when she kicked him to the curb. By way they was together for 7 years people 7 years !!

Wow, Ashanti really needs to hang up the "hood chick" act in 2010. It really is not flattering on her and seems contrived. This is obviously all just for publicity. Both of their albums flopped when they were parading around with eachother acting like the next hip-hop power couple, so now they are trying a different approach (*yaaaawn*) Oh, and I heard Nelly's new track today...

@Letgetitt....Almost all of

@Letgetitt....Almost all of your ignorant rants refer to slavery just like this one you posted at 6:55p.m. yet you claim that you're referring to right now....culture is simply customary beliefs that all ethnic backgrounds possess....Now it's obvious that you weren't raised with any culture but, I was and many african americans educate, nuture, love and encourage their children....This is why I can respond to you ignorance w/o using profanity or degrading anyone....Its' called home training.....And not to down play my brothers, but the truth is the black man was not sold out for welfare...The Black man walked away from their families because of frustration, depression, drugs, and selfishness and white society which had nothing to do with the sistas....Keep in mind when Massa came and took us from africa it was the Black Man that allowed this to happen not The Black Woman.....And as far as the feminist move as you call which, I think you're speaking of Women's right Act....White women initiated that and Black Woman weren't considered to be a part of that movement because of the color of their skin....We were still be treated like 2nd class citizens....And you're abosolutely wrong about civilization....Africa lost their civilization because the tribes allowed the White Man to come in and take over, Tribes Kings were men not women.....Have you ever taken the time to watch Chaka Zulu and even read the book? There are many books on how the civilization of Africa failed....And it sounds like you either grow up in an enviroment or you live in one now where all you see and hear is Black Women verbally abusing their children...That's not America....That's your Neighborhood or Household....Now if your preference is White women than so be it...But when are you as a MAN going to start taking responsibility for your life, your way of thinking, or way of living....GOD BLESS YOU!!!!

You just don't want to accept

You just don't want to accept the truth, im done replying to your ass. You just like every other black woman. You see how everything in America especially with the black community they cater to what the women want this whole system does it the black woman want her the kids and don't want the man to see or have them she got ittt!!!! the black woman want the man out the household she got it!!!! black woman want child-support and to take everything you got she go to the system and they cater to her.This system was designed around giving black woman more power because they don't see her as a treat and they know she will always bow to them then rat and down black men at the sametime why you think its so many black business women??It's not because she smarterrrrr?Because she isnt a treat they know they had the black woman everysince slavery and the beginin of time they always had a pact. Eve was the black woman and the snake was the white man and they both had a pact to fuck with the black man. Because they see us as a threat. And you dont know shit about history look at ancient kemet/egypt or nubia anytime you want to defeat a nation you go after the woman and mate with her then you got the civilization its been like that for yearsssss

@Legetitt....I hope that you

@Legetitt....I hope that you will decide to be done with ignorance and self hatred....Whether it's Ancient Egypt civilization, North America Civilization,etc....Men have always been the rulers and therefore were the deciding factors to whom they trusted....That's how Africa's Civilization failed by Men being naive and trusting toward other men....Women never ever had that power....What your saying is that if women hadn't open the doors with their legs than Africa's civilization would've failed....That's totally false....I've read a few books so unlike you, I'm not depicting bits and parts of history to prove a Bigot Racist Point....And it's obvious you don't understand African American history. Historically Black Woman have always been supportive, nuturing, loving, and educated....Behind every Successful Black Man there's a Strong Black Woman....But you wouldn't know anything about that because you've never been raised in a Black Middle Class Neighborhood or had successful Black parents....You obviously are a product of a verbally abusive, angry, welfare getting mother....News flash all African Amercans didn't grow up in a dysfuctional household like yourself....You were never taught any self respect, that's why you don't respect others.....This is what happens when uneducated people have children....They end up as "Uncle Ruckus" on YBF.....And as far as the system your President Roosevelt created the system....and the system was created so that poor people, like yourself.... Could get assistance from the government until they become self sufficient.....And as far as Child Support alot of you Brothas don't keep a job long enough for the parent to collect for your child....By the way Child Support is appointed by courts which means that you weren't willing to contribute to your own child, you had to be ordered to provide...What a LOSER!!!!.....So all of these psychotic rants are just that....It is so easy to place the blame elsewhere.....And now you wanna go to Adam and Eve....God forbade Adam from going into the garden and eating the fruit....And Eve was tricked by the serpent but, Adam had a choice and he chose to break his covenant with God....Again men have always had the authority to say Yea or Nay not Women.....

They are both two grown ass

They are both two grown ass adults... Clearly they both were together then and might be together now... I don't see the point in denying it. SMH. They make a cute couple and it's understood by now that the older ppl get, they date and start relationships. I can understand not wanting everybody in your business but there's nothing wrong with claiming you're in a relationship when everybody already knows anyway.
