“They’ll find me out. It’s like The Wizard of Oz. They’ll find out there’s nothing there. As for collaborations, I’m collaborating with the band and do what we do. I see myself as a member of this band who does these songs that we write.” ---Singer Sade was quoted before turning down rapper Jay-Z on a request for a collaboration. The singer has had a change of heart. It has been reported that the singer has requested that Jay-Z provide a rap verse for her track "Moon & Sky". The rapper Jay-Z has responded to this request and the remix of "Moon & Sky" will appear on Sade's greatest hits compilation, Ultimate Collection that's due in stores on May 3rd.

Wow....word is floating around the internet that Jay-Z isn't happy about a article written on him and has requested that the article is pulled. The article reveals that Jay-Z has stolen the concept behind the Cattier Wine 'Antique Gold' to create the Armand de Brignac 'Ace of Spades'. Antique Gold sells for under $60, while Armand de Brignac "Ace of Spades" is selling for over $300 and it's bascially the same Wine:
Yesterday The Atlantic ran an excerpt from a book on Jay-Z that shows the rapper in some rather unflattering light. Now that article is nowhere to be found (here’s a reposting of it). The author, Zack O’Malley Greenburg, writes that Jay is receiving millions per year for endorsing a sparkling wine called Armand de Brignac.
The problem is that everyone affiliated with the wine – as well as Jay-Z – denies any business ties.
