4. A Trip To England Saved Him From Prison
When friend and collaborator Jaz-O got signed to a record deal, he invited Jay to London, England to record for two weeks.
During that time, an indictment rounded up 30 of Jay’s friends and associates for dealing. The charges put Emory Jones, who now works for Roc Nation, behind bars for 11 years.
Jay says he’s certain that he would not be on stage with Letterman in 2018 if he hadn’t made that trip with Jaz.
