'Steada Kisses, We Get Kicked / It's a Hard Knock Life
Shawn Carter a/k/a Jay-Z sued in New York Supreme Court (NY County/Manhattan) for employment discrimination on the basis of gender and disability. Folake Ogundiran (plaintiff) was a former sales associate for Jay-Z at his 40/40 Club, but was allegedly fired after she became pregnant. Apparently, pregnancy doesn't fit the "unattached and 'sexy'" image the 40/40 Club allegedly embraces. Now THAT'S Baller.
