Jay Z On His 5 Percent Nation Chain: “Religion Is Like A Personal Computer”
by Staff Editor
On a recent sit down with The Breakfast Club, Jay Z wore a Five Percent Nation medallion and has been catching heat for his new accessory. While on the show, Charlamagne Tha God inquired on the significance of the chain.
“Religion is like a personal computer, you let people in if you want to,” Jigga responded.
Despite his wear of the medallion and reference to the Five Percent Nation on “We Made It,” a representative has refuted any associations between the organization and the Roc Nation leader.
“Jay Z is not an active member — no one has vouched for him,” Five Percent Nation representative, Saladin Allah said to the New York Post. “It was always understood that you don’t wear the regalia if you don’t totally subscribe to the life.”
