LL Cool J Beat Jay-Z in a battle real talk
 

 
Early years
Originally from the infamous Marcy Houses projects, in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn in New York City, Shawn Carter was abandoned by his father Adnes Reeves when he was twelve years old. Jay-Z attended George Westinghouse High School in Downtown Brooklyn and Trenton Central High School in Trenton, New Jersey but did not graduate. He claims to have been caught up in selling drugs on the streets of New York in the Marcy projects. In addition to this, Jay-Z has lyrically alluded to having sold cocaine and marijuana.

According to his mother Gloria Carter, a young Jay-Z used to keep his siblings up at night banging out drum patterns on the kitchen table. Eventually, she bought him a boombox for his birthday and thus sparked his interest in music. He began freestyling, writing rhymes, and followed the music of many artists popular at the time.

In his neighborhood, Carter was known as "Jazzy," a nickname which eventually developed into his stage name, "Jay-Z." The moniker is also an homage to his musical mentor Jaz-O (a.k.a. Jaz, Big Jaz) as well as to the J-Z subway lines that have a stop at Marcy Avenue in Brooklyn.

Jay-Z can be heard on several of Jaz-O's early recordings in the late 80's and early 90's, including "The Originators" and "Hawaiian Sophie." He and Jaz-O once ran into a blossoming LL Cool J in the park and were beaten in a freestyle battle by the self proclaimed G.O.A.T. He also collaborated with Inglewood, California producer Three-1-Zero. His career had a jump start when he battled a rapper by the name of Zai. The battle caught the eye of many record labels, as Jay-Z was able to hold his own against Zai. He also made an appearance on a popular song by Big L, "Da Graveyard," and on Mic Geronimo's "Time to Build," which also featured early appearances by DMX and Ja Rule in 1995.

i'm pretty sure Jay-Z beat LL in the battle, which is the reason why LL can't take offense when Jay calls himself the GOAT

I heard that is was outside of a club one night and LL wouldn't battle Jay or Jaz. Jay didn't battle Raekwon it was Gza and Gza said it wasn't a battle and nobody really won if it was. They both just walked away like n*gga you can't touch me. With X in the pool hall I heard you could vote either way on that one and not be wrong. I only seen a piece of it and didn't see X's part.
