Jay-Z Returns To Angie Martinez

Now that his album has officially been released, Hov began his radio run with Angie Martinez at Hot 97. He spoke on the album, trip to Cuba, Obama, family life, WTT 2 , Kanye, Twitter Q&A and Dame Dash.

How do you feel about Damon Dash?
“The thing we built , you can’t take that away so no matter what, the love is still there. Because what we’ve done will forever be stamped in history. We created something that’s gonna go down forever. So I can only have love for Dame. I just don’t know where we are in our life, we’re not the same two men at that time when we gelled in that way.”

Do you feel bad it ended the way it did?
“I haven’t seen him in a while. I have ultimate confidence in him that he’ll find his way ’cause he’s an amazing and smart guy. He’s a hustler and he’s highly intelligent, so I always root for him and always believe that he’ll find his way out of it. But I can’t control what happens life.”

    People can hate on him or maybe hate is too strong a word…maybe they just dislike him and/or what he represents. But this muthafucka’s business moves are superb.
    I think this album is pretty good, definitely gonna be in rotation for a lil over here…

    The most amazing and interesting interview i have ever seen.
    This man is just the most amazing person in the world.

    Said no one ever other than Jay Z stans.

    I am going to admit that his album was good but the production carried it.
    As for his business ventures. You can’t give him all the credit. You can give him the credit for hiring some great advisors though.

  • Set303

    These interviews Angie does with Jay are always dope. Also Jay is calm about everything in life.

    “I believe I can actually do it”

    That quote speaks volumes. Most people have dreams they’ll never chase and business plans they’ll never execute because deep down at the core of their soul, they don’t believe they can do actually pull it off. We are essentially scared to fail, which is a reality altering fear.

    To actually believe at your core that you can accomplish something specific, with out any fear of failure has to be and incredibly liberating.

  • still best rite now!!

    All im sayin is Eminem & Wayne did amilli in a week…no gimmicks!!

  • JUDAH

    Exactly…@ still best rite now

  • Donn

    Ppl say Jay shouldn’t get the credit and white ppl do this blah blah. If that was the case why aren’t u and damn near every rapper as rich as Jay if all u had to do was hire advisors? Exactly

  • ZoomZoomDad-Otis

    50 Cent way better than Jay-Z, and that’s an undeniable fact. G Unit!

  • Converse

    Jayz that nigga. hiphop lose when he die

  • Officer Ricky

    This interview is horrrrriibbbbbblleeeeeeeeee

    Angie Martinez has no idea how to conduct a quality interview, she is a total hack.

    There are no journalists in hip hop, there is just a PR circle jerk

  • ShamGAWD

    It’s dope that Jay still shows love to Dame & vice versa. I really hope these two patch it up sooner than later. They don’t have to be best friends just be on amicable terms.

  • Hip Pop Is Alive!

    Uck Eminem’s Larry Bird gimmick and the Celtics that own him

    The doors are opening I definitely see in the next 3 years a roc reunion tour at the very least dame and jay moment like jay had with nas.

  • Clos1881

    Hate when people say they not feeling jays music it’s always clown that’s gonna talk about money smh two separate issues master p laid the blueprint for a lot of these dudes but I’m not a fan of his music anymore either.

  • Fuck Your Opinion

    Jay is a genius, the guy is a living legend. No one will take hip hop as far as this guy has/is. His win streak is impeccable and he’s still dropping dope music well into his 40’s.. Over the past month it’s felt good to be a part of this culture, from all the new(er) guys (Cole, Wale, Mac) dropping great albums and having huge sales & recognition to seeing Hov come out of nowhere and fuck up the world(all pun intended). Sometimes as fans we get caught up in the hype & the bullshit that entertainment brings, when we really should be celebrating hip hop and all the dope music that’s come out. *throws 2 cents* #mylaugh

    I’m a big fan of Angie and a bigger fan of Jay-Z. Loved the interview. My favorite rapper is a genius and a living legend. Platinum before the album comes out and on path to have the number #1 album next week.

  • smfh

    jay z knew he wasnt going to sell a mill so he went and cheated and used corp america to get it not mad at but cheating cheating

  • Jack Hoff

    Adele puts these rappers to shame.
    No gimmicks to try to sell albums just pure talent

  • StarFox64

    i knew i was smart for waiting for the breakfast club, this shit i tried to watch but this guy is so fucking awkward and uncomfortable and angie just makes the shit unbearable with her man voice…ill wait

  • StarFox64

    my style is ferocious my win streak is impregnable…

  • hah

    this interview is hella awkward

  • Northwest

    This is dope but why ain’t no one post about the kanye west yeezus leftover song “reckless youth”? Best song within the last ten years http://www.soundcloud.com/Love_At_First_Sound/recklessyouth

  • rillmerch

    This interview wit a instrumental behind hit is a pre-platinum album [mylaugh]
