Happy Birthday Aaliyah!
"Have you ever loved somebody who used to get the party poppin'? We used to party hop, we used to be in the Hamptons, party a lot. We was The Breakfast Club, you was part of the Roc."
Jay-Z, Hype Williams, Natane Adcock, Dame, Puff and Aaliyah at Puff’s annual 4th of July weekend BBQ and party at his property in East Hampton on July 2-4, 2000.
(Note: Since 1997 the Roc-A-Fella family had been renting mansions which often came with a $30,000-a-week rent tag with the help of the Realtor Bettie Wysor of Dunemere Associates (a Lyor Cohen recommendation) and then hosting a Summer-long bash for their family and friends. The Roc team would arrive at the rented property in a chain of helicopters ("I never drive, I take a helicopter. Everybody says it's murder driving, and you ain't got to tell me twice"), and spend the season showing off their gains in wealth ("I'm cancer to the Hamptons, 20 million a wop, ransacking mansions, increase the noise pollution as soon as I land in"). Puff would also host many events at his East Hampton home, so a slew of must-attend parties were spread between the two properties over the Summer. The festivities would culminate in this Independence Day soirée at the Roc mansion, complete with a mouth watering menu that included the specially crafted Roc-A-Tinis (martinis à la Roc-A-Fella).
"The Hamptons is cool," Jay told New York magazine in 1999. "It's very serene, a change of pace, a kind of getaway." However, the rap mogul did have other things on his mind besides celebrating his successes. "Meeting new people out here is very important, that's how you network," he said. "Maybe I can help you in my field; maybe you can help me in your field. And relationships is way more important than money, because if you got relationships, you can always get money. You can progress.") ( Read more in the comments)

Dagens Næringsliv (DN), a Norwegian financial publication, first reported Monday that the Norwegian National Authority for Investigation And Prosecution of Economic And Environmental Crime, known as Økokrim, is probing the music streaming service, which is based in Norway.
They reported in May that Tidal allegedly inflated the number of times its users had streamed Beyoncé’s Lemonade and Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo by tens of millions of streams. University computer scientists confirmed DN’s report with a forensic analysis of Tidal’s data (📷: Getty Images)
#LINKINBIO 👈🏻 A North Carolina man was arrested on Saturday after video showed him pushing and punching a girl at a local mall as he was surrounded by dozens of onlookers.
Asheville, North Carolina, authorities arrested 51-year-old David Steven Bell shortly after video circulated on social media showing a man suspected to be him shoving a child and then punching her in the face at the Asheville Mall,
The video shows a crowd of mostly teens gathered outside the mall around a man who appears to be Bell. One young girl approaches him, and he responds by forcefully pushing her. As she approaches him again, the man punches her in the face with all of his man strength, knocking her to the ground.
All parties involved refused medical treatment. Bell was charged with assault on a female under the age of 12 and two counts of assault on a female. It appears that Bell was released shortly after his arrest, as he is “not listed as a current inmate in Buncombe County Detention Center’s online records.”
The parents of the girl in the video have not made a public statement about Bell, although The Root’s experts believe that her cousins are probably going to fuck him up.
