In 2001, San Diego based gangsta rapper Jayo Felony released a diss track titled "Trued Up" targeted at Jay Z that called him out as a phony. This ended up essentially going nowhere, as Jayo hadn't made an album since. A music video was made for the song however.

Background

Around the late 90s, Jayo Felony ended his contract with Def Jam Records and went underground, after achieving modest success with his 1994 album Take a Ride and then with Watcha Gonna Do in 1998. Afterwards, he released two underground albums in 1999 (Underground) and 2001 (Crip Hop).

During this time, a beef started between Jay Z and Jayo Felony for unknown reasons. It's been speculated that it may have been due to Jayo being released from the label (label politics). According to an MTV News article, Jayo took offense to Jay Z's perceived insulting of the West Coast hip hop scene and his arrogance. Jay Z also apparently attempted to get the song from getting released.

Allegedly, a music video was released and aired on MTV or BET once. It's unknown why it was essentially banned, but it's been speculated Def Jam Records got it off the air.

Availability

The music video has not been released in any way since its supposed TV airing and, while a user on the Siccness.net forums supposedly uploaded the video on YouTube in 2011, it was eventually taken down.

I really don't understand how you think this could POSSIBLY be. Never mind that it isn't the actual song, why would a 2001 music video be in widescreen or have someone using an Android smartphone in it? Come on.

According to a page on mvdbase, this was directed by J. Jesses Smith. Maybe he has a copy.

It also says it was produced by Al Rivera and photography was done by Joseph Labisi. So already we have multiple leads.
