If you ain’t already know, Jay-Z’ Magna Carta Holy Grail album has already been certified platinum, though today was the official release date. We’re sure those Samsung sales didn’t hurt not one bit. In addition to chatting with folks on Twitter yesterday, Jay-Z decided to swing by Hot 97 for a “surprise” interview with Angie Martinez. She got to ask him all types of questions. Check out his responses below and listen to the entire interview on the last page.
On failure: “I fail all the time. I’m a person that loves to win. I don’t hate to lose.”
Fatherhood: “It’s more reaffirming. The things that’s really important in life and editing your life in such a way that you don’t have anything that’s distracting you, anything that takes away from that time you can be with your child.”
Money: “I just don’t need money. … I think success is just being able to do what you like to do on your terms.”
Miley Cyrus: “Miley’s serious. I like what she’s doing right now. She’s fearless. I think it’s more a reaction to people wanting her to be Hannah Montana. Just watching the situation, people want her to be something and she’s like, ‘I’m not that. I was six years old. You want me to be six years old forever?’ And this is her reaction to it. Maybe it’s loud, but it’s understandable.”
Beyoncé’s new music: “Right now, B has a hundred thousand amazing songs.
A Best of Both Worlds-type album with Beyoncé: “No way. You see how that ended.”
Dame Dash: “No matter how many years I ain’t see him, the love is still there because what we’ve done will forever be stamped in history… I have ultimate confidence in him that he’ll find his way because he’s an amazing and really smart guy. He’s a hustler and he’s highly intelligent. I always root for him and always believe that he’ll find his way out of it.”
