Jay-Z Helps Out His Cuz

| Filed under: Jay ZFamily

Jay-Z gives his convict cousin a job

Tis the season to be jolly!

Rapper and all around mogul Jay-Z is giving his cousin, a convicted drug trafficker, a second chance and offering the recently released inmate a job at his Roc Apparel Group.

Jay-Z has written a letter to a federal judge on behalf of Emory Jones, who he actually "worked" for before his rap career took off, reading:

"I believe his attributes - including intelligence, interpersonal skills and solid work ethic - will be a significant asset for my organization… he is an honest and reliable individual; it would be a privilege to offer him an opportunity."

The letter was included in a sentence reduction plea for Jones, who pleaded guilty to a cocaine trafficking charge in January 2000.

Jay referred to his relationship with Jones in a 2006 song called "Do U Wanna Ride", which features lots of references to his locked up pal and what they'll do when he gets out.

Sounds like Jay-Z was planning this job offer for some time.

Good luck with the new job, Emory!
