2010 is starting off pretty badly for rapper Jay Z. As MediaTakeOut.com told you a few weeks ago, Jay Z is SUING on of his business partners because the multi-million dollar hotel he was creating is getting FORECLOSED.

And now, the NY Post is saying that Jigga may have done some CORRUPT dealings with the Governor of New York. They say that Jay and the Governor and the Wall Street bankers over at AIG decided to pull some kind of scam, where they would secretly grant themselves the exclusive rights to a new casino in New York.

Here’s some excerpts from the paper

In early September, AEG Chairman Richard Mays approached Jay-Z through his business partners and asked whether he would be interested in joining the consortium — which at the time ranked last among six bidders seeking the lucrative project. . .

“[NY Governor] Paterson directly told [Las Vegas businessman Steve] Wynn he needed to have a minority partner, so he went and got Jay-Z. But when Wynn pulled out, Jay-Z was without a home,” a source told The Post.

“AEG went and grabbed Jay-Z after his deal with Steve Wynn fell through.” AEG jumped at the chance to recruit Jay-Z, who has become increasingly close to Paterson, sources said. The two dined together in June and hung out in the Hamptons.

And it gets even WORSE. According to the paper, the FEDS are investigating this whole thing, and if they find out somebody did something wrong – they throwing people IN JAIL!!!!jay-zSource
