Jay-Z Clash Cover

Never heard of this mag until today. But they seem to be across the pond-based and Hov chopped it up with them when he was out there. Interview is the typical fodder, but there’s an interesting note about how it came to be for Kanye to get a guest verse on “Run This Town.”

Do you have a fixed idea of who you want on a particular track and then aim to get them?
Actually, they weren’t on till the other day. Literally, Kanye wasn’t on there until two days ago. It just felt like he needed to be on there. I was listening to this track and the drums just kept reminding me of ‘Jesus Walks’ and I could hear him… And that’s how collaborations usually happen for me. I don’t sit there and pick people out of the air. It’s more that I’ll find myself in someone’s zone and I’ll be ‘man, this would sound good if so-and-so was on it’.

“Hoover, Hova.”

After a gang of radio interviews, Morning Show Hov touched down in the Chi and did his 1-2 thing at the House of Blues. No Mr. West, but Mr. Carter takes a lil’ time to address the “Haters,” with the song’s first ever performance. Yes sir!

Young Guru: Critiquing Jay-Z

No, “Yes Men” here. Guru admits to telling Hov his opinion on his records. In fact, he says Jay switched his verses on “Already Home” and “Forever Young.” Good luck on finding those, leakers. Sidebar: Pardon the low audio. Squeeze the juice out your headphones/speakers.
