New York (AFP) – Rap mogul Jay Z has quietly used his wealth to post bail for people arrested in protests across the United States against police excesses, an author close to him said.

Dream Hampton, a writer and activist who worked with Jay Z on his 2010 memoir “Decoded,” made the revelations in a series of messages on Twitter that she later deleted but were reproduced by the hip-hop magazine Complex.

“When we needed money for bail for Baltimore protesters, I… hit Jay up, as I had for Ferguson (and he) wired tens of thousands” of dollars within minutes, read one tweet.

    Its his money.
    If he’s stupid enough to give it up,
    Its his bitness. Stupit.

    Jay Z is hazy, some would say crazy, when it comes to distinguishing right from wrong.

    JZ doesn’t have to worry about protection he has his on body guards. Most middle class and the poor have to depend on the police for their protection
    If it weren’t for the police no one would be protected including Mr. JZ. meh

    And we all know this creep, his wife and other elitists in Hollywood are all into the NWO/ illuminati scene. Corruption to the max.
