Rapper Jay-Z has opened up about the past struggles in his marriage to "soulmate" Beyonce which was on the brink of an end due to his infidelity. That's missing the whole point. "Treat people like human beings, that's the main point".

Jay-Z said no, mainly because he thought they would not be invited. It goes back to the whole thing: Treat me like really bad and pay me well.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the unemployment rate for African Americans was 6.8 percent in December - the lowest since 1972 when records began being categorised by race.

JAY-Z pointed out that Sterling losing his National Basketball Association team wasn't enough to rattle "closeted racists" and truly address the issue of racism in America.

"This is the leader of the free world speaking like this... somewhere along his lineage something happened to him. What you've done was spray perfume on a trash can", he said.

As Jay-Z and Trump trade verbal blows, this whole fiasco will be particularly devastating for one individual: Eminem.

President Donald Trump slammed Jay Z on Sunday after the Brooklyn-born rapper made accusations against him on CNN.
