The Reverend Al Sharpton’s National Action Network has issued a response in regards to recent allegations that he was on some extortion ish:
“According to Bruce Williams, a confidant of Dr. Dre and author of the recently released book Rollin’ With Dre, Sharpton allegedly demanded $500,000 dollars from the mega-producer to end The Game’s feud with 50 Cent, or NAN would organize a march and boycott.
Here’s an excerpt of the statement:
“‘The National Action Network and Reverend Al Sharpton were not involved with and did not attend a press conference held by Hip-Hop artists The Game and 50 Cent to announce their truce and donation to charities,’ a representative for Reverend Sharpton [said] a statement. ‘At no point has Reverend Al Sharpton or an authorized representative of National Action Network met with Dr. Dre.’”
Wow, say it isn’t so Al. We’re not saying that he did it, but if he did, he could at least retire that hot comb and hire a real hair stylist once and for all.
