It is very rare that Jay-Z does interviews, so when the mogul himself sat down with The New York Times’ Executive Editor Dean Baquet to discuss the state of Hip-Hop, politics, marriage, Kanye West and so much more, you know this was bound to be a great interview.
Jay-Z who is nominated for ‘Album Of The Year’ award at the 2018 Grammy’s would be the first non white artist to win the top honor in a decade, for his album 4:44 if he wins.
Take a look at the best highlights of the interview below
- Therapy saved his marriage to wife Beyoncé.
- Lemonade and 4:44 were suppose to be joint albums however both albums were deemed to be the truth about what really went on in their relationship (infidelity issues)
- Jay is raising his kids based up qualities that build good characters
- Him and Kanye West are in a slight competition but are in better place than before and will work out their differences one day
- Money isn’t everything
