"That's the silliest rumor I've ever heard," said Jay-Z. That was Brooklyn-born rapper Jay-Z’s response to the assertion that he blackballed Chris Brown from the 2009 BET Awards last month.

"First let me categorically deny that, that's not even my style,” said the rapper during an interview with radio personality Tim Westwood. “I haven't said anything live or behind the scenes. I don't agree with what he did and that's it. We're all flawed human beings, all a person could do is apologize. Everyone should be allowed to make mistakes. But as far as not letting him perform on BET -- that's ridiculous, that's stupid and that's a sucker move. I wouldn't do it. And people commenting on rumors -- that's a sucker move."

The last remark is said to be a stab at former Roc-A-Fella business partner, Damon Dash, who, when asked earlier this month about the potential of Jay-Z actually threatening to not perform during the BET awards if Brown was permitted to attend, said, "Are you surprised? Wasn't I his best friend? Didn't he do that to me? So you think he's not going to do that to Chris Brown? He's just being a little more flagrant about how he moves."

"I was really sitting back and watching all of them suckers comment on that," Jay-Z continued. "You don't comment on rumors. I was watching like, 'look at them. That's just so silly. They are all really stupid'."

When asked about rapper The Game, who has been taking verbal jabs at Jay-Z since the latter performed a snippet of his "What We Talking About?" track at a Las Vegas show recently, including calling Jay-Z an "old ass n*gga" and insinuating his wife, Beyonce, was at one point promiscuous, Jay-Z simply replied with, "tell groupie to get over it."

In "What We Talking About," Jay-Z rhymes, "I ain't talking about gossip / I ain't talking about Game / I ain't talking about Jimmy / I ain't talking about Dame.. grown men want me to sit them on my lap / but I don't have a beard and Santa Claus ain't black."

Jay-Z also confirmed during the chat that his next single will be the Rihanna and Kanye West-assisted "Run This Town," "cause we run this town," he said.
