Jay-Z Opens Up About Marriage, Race In America and The State Of Rap In Recent Interview With New York Times


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

  1. Therapy saved his marriage to wife Beyoncé.
  2. 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)
  3. Jay is raising his kids based up qualities that build good characters
  4. Him and Kanye West are in a slight competition but are in better place than before and will work out their differences one day
  5. Money isn’t everything
  6. He regrets selling drugs
  7. He would sign Colin Kaepernick if he were an NFL team owner
