Bun B Shares Why Jay-Z Had Him Kicked Off Set Of Beyoncé’s ‘Check On It’

Iconic Houston rapper, Bun B, jumped on The Nostalgia Mixtape podcast hosted by Sama’an Ashrawi, where he shared stories about his career. One including the story of why Jay-Z kicked him off the set of Beyonce’s Check On It featuring him and Slim Thug.

“This is in New York. So we’re on the set and we’re filming the video, and if you look at the video, there’s a lot of kind of skimpy outfits. Queenie is there also, so it’s not like I’m there salivating over another woman,” Bun says, referencing his wife. “But we’re like, ‘Whoa, this is crazy. Beyoncé’s dancing in this short skirt and she’s dancing in like a bikini,’ type of thing, you know.”

Basically, Bun was asked to leave because thee Queen Bey was stunting in her fly and skimoy outfits.

“While all of this was happening, I think this is the scene with the chair, so it’s like her and several other girls and they all have these short skirts on and they’re all dancing seductively on the chair. They’ve got a leg up on the chair so you can kind of see some thigh and maybe a little bit of butt if you’re staring hard enough, and Jay-Z calls and talks to one of her assistants,” Bun continues. “If I had to guess it would’ve been her cousin Angie that he would’ve talked to because Angie has always been a right hand to Beyoncé. He’s like, ‘Yeah how’s the video going, what’s going good, are the guys there?’ All the guys that are with us are the only men there. Well, let me say this: there were other men there, but they weren’t straight.”

“So they immediately come over to us and they kick all of us out to our dressing rooms and we’re told to stay there until we have to shoot. We’re not allowed to watch Beyoncé dance anymore,” Bun says.

Eventually Bey apologized to the men. “‘I’m so sorry you guys had to leave the room but Jay’s not comfortable,’” Bun mentions. “And we’re all like, ‘We understand fully, that’s no problem, we’re happy to be here.’”
