Jay Z
and Solange are finally addressing the infamous elevator fight video ... saying BOTH sides are to blame for the violence that unfolded. 

Jay Z, Solange, and Beyonce released the joint statement moments ago, saying, "Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family."

The statement continues, "The reports of Solange being intoxicated or displaying erratic behavior throughout that evening are simply false. At the end of the day families have problems and we're no different."
 
"We love each other and above all we are family. We've put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same."

The statement still doesn't explain what caused the fight, but Jay and Solange say they have worked through it.

I still buy into the theory that Jay Z was flirting with some chic (Rachel Roy) and Solange saw it and flipped out on both of them....like any good sister wood.

I respect that. Honest, simple and true and might I say very thoughtful to give the public some closer.

In February 1998, critically and publicly-acclaimed
Social Raptivist "The Gangsta of Love" recorded
"Freaky Deaky World". Unbelievably still unsigned at the
time, he would send the song to Major-label A&R Personnel, and "The Source Magazine". The song
which sampled "Slide" by Funk Music Icons Slave, would feature a chorus of "Children" singing,
"It's a Freaky Deaky World...."
Over 9-months later, a clear and undeniable rip-off
version would "earn" Jay-ZzZzZz, his biggest hit-single
to date: Hard Knock Life.

Hard knocks? $40M....OVERDUE.
ALL, in -near- DUE time, CHUMP.

Pretty sure the family problem will turn out to be Jay-Z sleeping around.
