Also, Jay called into the Shade 45 Morning Show today and talked with Angela Yee and YN (former XXL editor). I only caught the middle of the interview. The only thing he dished about the new album, which is titled, Blueprint 3, is that he has three songs so far. He wouldn't say who they were produced by or give any details on them because they might end up not being on the album. He mentioned that out of the three joints there's one that's UNDENIABLE. He was on his way to a meeting with Mayor Bloomberg @ City Hall FYI: The sample for the new joint is from "Dumb Girl" from Run DMC's "Raising Hell" album. YN wrote the cover story for the new Vibe issue. Guess Wifey is lookin' out for him since she's the Editor of Vibe. lol
Jay-Z on supporting Senator Barack Obama: “What [Obama] represents is, we as a people are part of the American Dream…We were left out of the dream at a certain point. Now the dream is, you can be anything – and it’s not cliché.”
Jay-Z on Lil Wayne: “You should embrace the next generation…I think he’s really a fan of mine. I think he really loves the sh-t that I’ve done…The public has him in line next, and for me to say he’s not in line next would be foolish.”
Jay-Z’s response when asked to confirm his marriage to Beyoncé: “I just think it’s really a part of your life that you gotta keep to yourself…You have to have something sacred to you and the people around you…I shared so much of my life…I should have something to hold on to.”
Jay-Z on his tenure as President of Def Jam: “Everyone always analyzes the job that I’ve done at Def Jam…I always feel the need to justify it…If anybody in their tenure had Kanye, Rihanna, and Ne-Yo…One album for each one of them in three years is a superb job.”
