The rapper who discussed his mother’s se*uality on song “Smile,” in new album 4:44 said:
When she first heard the song she was like ‘absolutely not,’ and I was like, ‘Man, this is so important, like so many people in the world hiding and things like this will help you.
I was just so happy with the person that she’s become, just live your life and be whoyou are. One of my proudestsongs, I love that song.
On “Blue’s We Family freestyle:
So I start playing the beat and I was playing it so long and then I started doing something and she went and she got the headphonesand she climbed on the littlestool and she just started rapping.
I’m talking about amazing pockets. She understands the concept of a hook, she’s five… I was like, ‘what the f**k is going on in here?’On the hypocrisy of the war on drugs, the racial undertones, how he feels now that weed is legal:Biggs, you know… yeah that really hurt me about Biggs… That’s a real story…There are people in jail while people making billions of dollars off weed.
Everybody cool with that shit? Y’all cool? No one’s gonna talk about it? They had some ladies on the Today Show talking about weed makes them better parents…Oh shit, nah, this man just did five years. You guys gonna just do this. Alright. It’s f**ked up. It’s f**ked up.
Rap is just growing up. It’s still one of the youngest genres of music. So no one really knows what it’s going to be yet.We haven’t seen where a guy 47 years old puts out this sort of album, we haven’t seen that, this thing is…young, it’s gon’ grow and it’s gon’ be wide, and its gon’be wonderful and beautiful and people are gonna be able to coexist.
On if he would be dropping another album, JAY-Z said:
Yeah. If I have something to talk about and it’s great. If it’s not great, then no. I just wanna make great shit. And it has to be great to me, that’s what its really about. I have to be happy with it.
