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.”
