This is from an interview Tristan Wilds (who plays Jay's "nephew" in the Roc Boys Video and is also a character on The Wire) did earlier this month. I was looking for him on Myspace (he's a cutie ) and ran across this:
You played Jay-Z's nephew in the video for "Roc Boys." What was it like working with Jay-Z? Is he a fan of the show? Will we see more of you in the next video?
Jay was great. He is a big fan of the show. I will be in the next video, but I can't say what happens. I'll get in trouble. Source
He's also going to be in the I Will Not Lose Spring Rocawear Campaign. Can't wait to see what it is though.

6 mins in the life of the Illadelphonics. The Illadelph All Star Collective that was hand chosen by his Hovness to back him up on his Vegas 2007 weekend. the title refers to my failed attempt to give my former boss to spring a few lanes of bowling for the crew (being as though we have a bowling alley in the hotel). he retorts that im better of going to see Cirque De Soleil Beatles production of LOVE.
he scoffs at my suggestion that he treats...
"i mean i am an artist on def jam..."

I was totally impressed. You can see, even in a short conversation, why Jay-Z is so comfortable in so many environments: boardrooms, mean streets, studios and posh resorts. The man carries himself with such ease and confidence, appears thoughtful in answering questions and connects without any sense of being on autopilot or giving previously contrived answers.
More to come!
