Aspiring Lady Lyricist LIV Banks On Jay Z Pushing Up On It!by Jacky Jasper
Free Publicity From Jigga’s Cheating On Bey Attempt?
Jay Z may have been interested in smashing it, but time proved Jigga wasn’t feeling LIV’s rap music. That may be why the aspiring Miami-based rapper is now telling her story of the time Hova tried to hit it. Don’t believe Jigga’s a cheater.. Just ask Solange Knowles!
Here’s what Liv told Radar Online about first meeting Jay Z, back in 2008, during a Budweiser commercial shoot in Miami:
“I was on the set hanging out with my sister and he sat right next to me. He literally moved his chair from next to the director’s next to mine. He was nothing but a gentleman. It was one of those things where we really connected. We talked, and left each other on that note. Then one of his bodyguards approached me and said, ‘Jay wants your number.
He’s gonna call you when he’s back in town.’ I was like, that’s so wrong. One, that’s really immature to send the bodyguard to get my number. Two, I’m not somebody that would just get a call when he’s in town. I wasn’t going to disrespect B like that. I was hoping that maybe we could meet up at the studios or something. In my mind, I was hoping for so much more [than just a hookup]. It was like, that was so personal and not about business at all. I was like, I get it. It started and ended there.’
Here’ what Liv revealed happened a few months later, at Miami’s Nobu Restaurant:
“He was there eating [with some people, not Beyonce] and I was there eating, and we both left our tables and met up in the corridor. He was still friendly, still the same. He was like ‘this time we are definitely exchanging numbers.’”
That’s when Solange [who was reportedly nearby] is said to have grown “suspicious”.
“She walked past and kind of peeped the whole thing, stared me down, like ‘you see me right?’ But like I said, I wasn’t trying to come on to him at all. It was a brief conversation. He was just like, ‘We are going to stay in touch.’ It was like, we connected this time, let’s do it right. I thought, ‘Ok, this time he’s going to take me seriously,’
so I gave him my number and took information. I sent him an email about my music and I never got a response, so I was like, okay, I get it. We never kept in touch but we had a wonderful connection.”
