We’re up against a guy with all this money, and we’re still here.” Satterthwaite has started a Fundly fund-raising effort to help pay for college, medical, and legal costs. In the meantime, Satterthwaite is working on pursuing a rap career of his own, following his alleged father’s lead. “It was in my blood,” he said. “I really wanted to pursue my dreams.

Satterthwaite’s mother, Wanda, claims that a high school fling with Shawn Carter, also known as Jay Z, resulted in Satterthwaite’s birth, after a second man with whom she also had a fling took a paternity test that turned up negative.

Jay Z has refused to comment publicly.
