Sauce Money Talks Jay Z’s “Disgusting” Flow, Ghostwriting & Why He Didn’t Sign To Roc-A-Fella (Audio)

It’s easy to confuse Sauce Money as a Jay Z protege. After all, many Heads may have heard Sauce by way of Roc-A-Fella Records releases, as well as Jay’s support of Middle Finger U. However, those who listened to Big Daddy Kane & DJ Premier’s famed “Show & Prove” know that Sauce made a pre-Roc-A-Fella appearance alongside Jay, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, and Shyheim The Rugged Man.

In a rare sit-down with The Combat Jack Show, Sauce Money opens up about his history. The Marcy Projects MC came up under the same Jaz-O umbrella as his childhood friend Jay. He discusses showing his friend his rapping skills, the two shopping deals together, both being managed by Big Daddy Kane together, etc. Sauce reveals that while Jay went to East Trenton with DeHaven in 1993 and 1994, he started working with former Orlando Magic star Dennis Scott, signing a major deal. Under the tutelage of DJ Clark Kent, Sauce then broke into trying to sever his ties (going “Scott-Free” as he and Jay called it) to join Roc-A-Fella. In this interview, the former MCA Records and Priority Records artist breaks down his reservations of doing business with Dame Dash. From writing massive hits for Puff Daddy & The Family (who showed immense love), to working extensively with DJ Premier, the only time Jay and The Notorious B.I.G. performed “Brooklyn’s Finest,” to laying low… this interview goes deep. Tune in around the 29-minute mark…


Sauce Money’s creeping on a comeback of sorts (after deliberately laying low). Does this interview grab your attention now?

From Foxy Brown to Sauce Money, The Combat Jack Show is telling some critical Roc stories that Heads have never heard.
