Keep the interviews coming Jay!
Unlike his good friend Yeezy, Jay-Z has been on a roll with the interviews. During his most recent interview with Rap Radar’s Elliot Wilson held at the NY Yankee Stadium he dished on a array of topics from Beyonce, to being a dad, what he struggles with and more. Hov wasn’t afraid to dish on his feelings towards the George Zimmerman case and he even admitted to not sleeping for two days after the reading of the verdict.
I was really angry. I didn’t sleep for two days. We all knew there was still a bit of racism in America but for it to be so blatant, ask yourself the question, “Didn’t Trayvon have the right to stand his ground?” He was being chased, he fought back. He may have won but that doesn’t mean he’s a criminal. If you chase me and try to attack me and I defend myself, how can I be wrong? This guy went to get some skittles and go back to watch the All-Star Game. He had plans. He had no intention of robbing anyone’s home. They’re funding George Zimmerman because they want to hold onto their guns. We all know it was wrong.
Hov also admitted that although he and Drake are good friends, he feels like Drizzy is his biggest competitor.
We hear the lines “feelin like the throne is for the takin, watch me take it”. It wasn’t meant with malice or disrespect, it’s just like I’m coming acknowledge my existence. There is a respect thing but there’s also a competitive thing and it’s being done the right way. He’s definitely reared his head as that guy. He’s definitely Kobe Bryant.
