During the 1990s, Jay-Z used to stash drugs in his apartment in Brooklyn, located at 560 State St. He said so himself on the classic track “Empire State of Mind”
I used to cop in Harlem, all of my Dominicanos
Right there up on Broadway, pull me back to that McDonald’s
Took it to my stash spot, 560 State Street
Catch me in the kitchen like a Simmons with them pastries.
Today, the Brooklyn rapper turned minority NBA team owner can go to that same building and look at the arena he helped built, the Barclays Center.
