Hold up let me get this straight, no body ever says if Michael Jackson was alive there would be no Chris Brown or if 2 pac or Biggie was still around there would be no Drake… But here y'all are every single year discrediting Beyoncé career in order to make Aaliyah shine on the anniversary of her death. Y'all don’t bring up any other female artist to compare to Aaliyah what about JLo, Ciara, Brandy, Monica, Rihanna, Alicia Keys??? Lmao Beyoncé existence and success got y'all so shook y'all have to compare her to the dead, just say you hate her and move on learn how to celebrate Aaliyah’s legacy without bringing others down, Aaliyah is gone let her rest.

“Have you ever loved somebody used to get the party poppin’, we used to party-hop, we used to be in the Hamptons, party a lot, we was The Breakfast Club, you was a part of the Roc…”

Jay-Z and Aaliyah at the annual Roc-A-Fella Records Fourth of July party and barbecue in East Hampton in July 2000.

Since 1997 Jay-Z and the Roc-A-Fella Records family had been renting mansions (which often came with a $30,000-a-week rent tag) and hosting Summer long parties for their family and friends. The festivities would culminate in a massive Independence Day soirée, complete with a Roc-themed menu and VIP guest-list.

During an interview with Touré at Jay’s Hamptons mansion, just two weeks before her untimely passing in August 2001, Aaliyah said this about her close friend: “He is the sweetest person. I have so much fun when I’m with him. I admire him because he’s an amazing talent, and on top of that he’s a beautiful person. He’s really good people.”
