Jay-Z Lists NYC ‘Stash Spot’ Apartment for $1.4 Million

Rapper Jay-Z has listed his New York City ‘stash spot’ apartment for sale at $1.4 million.

Located at Brooklyn’s Boerum Hill, the apartment was mentioned in his famous hit song featuring Alicia Keys, “Empire State of Mind.” The lyrics of the song go: “I used to cop in Harlem, all of my Dominicanos / Right there up on Broadway, pull me back to that McDonald’s / Took it to my stash spot, 560 State Street / Catch me in the kitchen like a Simmons with them pastries.”

Jay-Z lived in unit 10B. It is reported that various black artists and musicians lived in the vicinity in the 90s.

Jay-Z visited the apartment in 2019 and was overpowered by emotions.

“But I knew something wasn’t right about the things I was doing,” he said. “My conscious was alive. So I just decided to let that street life go and just really focus on music. This is what I love to do. If I had my choice to be successful — to be successful in the street or be successful making music, it would be making music.”

“So let me treat it like that and give it my all,” he added. “And when I did, it happened pretty much right away for me.”
