my favorite rapper Jay Z, made a surprise visit to Hot 97 radio station in NYC, and kicked it with radio personality Angie Martinez.
During the show Jay talked about the rumored beef between him & Kanye West, the new video for their first single “Otis,” off their “Watch The Throne” album, the artist on his Roc Nation roster, his partnership with Will Smith & more.
Check out a few excerpts from the interview below:
On his fued with Kanye West:
“Kanye’s my brother… Yes, we get on each other’s nerves. We push each other to be greater. Of course, there are times when we’re in the studio and we’re yelling. I would never disrespect that man or put my hands on him.”
On their Watch The Throne Album:
“I think this album is the perfect album at the perfect time.”
On what he keeps in his Maybach:
Ace of Spades, Nerds candy, an Hermès throw blanket, a couple Yankees hats, and sunglasses.
His thoughts on President Barack Obama:
“The President is like the second coolest person in the world [next to me].”
On the Spike Jonze-directed video for “Otis”:
“It’s very simple and very amazing.”
On his film partnership with Will Smith:
“We did a co-venture between Overbrook and Roc Nation.”
On signing his Roc Nation artists including J. Cole, Jay Electronica, and Bridget Kelly:
“If you gon’ come sign to Roc Nation, just realize that it’s gon’ take a second. I’m into artists, I’m not really into putting a single out.”
