N.O.R.E. recently tagged Michael Jordan as “a hater of hip-hop” while reflecting on an interaction with him during a 2002 party in New York City. The rapper claims Jordan was disrespectful to the rappers in the party and even went as far as saying “F*ck rap.”
Jordan’s longtime rep Estee Portnoy released a statement to TMZ dismissing the claim. “MJ wasn’t at this party, doesn’t know N.O.R.E., and is a fan of ALL music,” she said. Further adding, “Drake is in his brand, and Nelly is a partner of his with the Charlotte Hornets.”
N.O.R.E. doesn’t like to be called a liar and found images from of the Christmas party he was referring to and Jordan was there. It was Mariah Carey’s 2002 Charm Bracelet album release party and not the Def Jam Christmas Party that N.O.R.E. first said.
