Jay-Z in Stop Smiling Magazine

Jay sat down with Stop Smiling for their second annual 20 Interviews issue. He speaks on a number of subjects in the Q&A, including racism, violence in music, and selling crack.

SS: It doesn’t seem fair that Martin Scorsese or Denzel Washington are considered true artists when they portray gangsters, but if you or one of your contemporaries talks about street life then you’re dealing with Bill O’Reilly, Oparh Winfrey, Stanly Crouch and congressional hearings?
 
JZ: Of course, there is an imbalance, but I understand where it comes from. In hip-hop, the whole ‘keep it real’ has become more than a phrase. Scorsese and Denzel are not tied to the films they make, so people see the separation between art and life. Unfortunately, they don’t see that separation between Shawn Carter and Jay-Z. As far as they’re concerned, everything I talk about is happening for real. To them, at no point is it entertainment. 

The issue also has an interview with Pete Rock. Check out some more excerpts from the Jay piece here and go here to order a copy.  

In unrelated Jay-Z news, his pockets continue to grow exponentially.

    Does Mark Wahlberg count as a rapper

    ——————-

    … he had two gold singles and a platinum lp … he was actually better than vanilla ice, and the rest of the anglo-mc’s of that era … back then 3rd Bass and House Of Pain were GOAT white MCs … with full disrepect to the insanely overrated Beastie Boys …

The new album features fellow Wu members Method Man, U-God and Raekwon. [Peep Ghost’s blog on SOHH for more information]

    The Super Gangster (Extraordinary Gentlemen), Styles P, debuted at No. 52 on the charts selling 29,000 copies. The Yonkers rapper tapped Akon, Ray J, Ghostface, Black Thought and Max B for the album.

    …it didn’t i remember the fact that Ghostface released 2 albums last year and neither sold more than 50,000 was one of the biggest reasons why we said jay was in fact hating on Budden, how can you justify an artist on a label putting out 2 albums in 1 year which can’t sell 50,000 combined but you won’t put anything out for someone else in 3 + years, shit and it’s not like it was just ghost there was yg’s memph bleek, meth and red and basically every rapper on the label….

    Raekwon interview

  108. Gho$t Ryder Says:

    It’s funny that Jay-Z is on the cover of a magazine called ‘Stop Smiling’. With lips his size, if he smiled they would need the same number of covers as pages in da damn shit.

    ^that pic is fine, but just as a warning NEVER trust angled or kinda blurry pics of chicks online. i learned the hard way….i spent a couple weeks during a summer talking to this chick from my h.s. i mean in those blurry pics, she was HOT. i meet her once school starts, and…i was quite dissapointed. she ended up following me around school for like a month asking me why i didnt like her, that shit was a nightmare.

  120. landLORD Says:

    *GOAT bitter old-head MC*

    … Raekwon … even though he’s my second favorite MC of all time … he STAY crying … everytime you see a photo of the god, he has that same exasperated,”suck your teeth” grimace and scowl … why Rae always so mad ? … he made cake during the movement ? … its not like he had to play the back, like Deck, Masta Killa & uGOD … Rae got much shine, during Wu’s long run of domination … i dont overstand his perpetual bitterness … if RZA did cheat with the ends, so what … this man got them ALL out of a dead end situation in Park Hill and Stapleton … RZA deserves a little icing off the top … Rae needs to switch the legendary flow up …

    … Jadakiss = modern day Raekwon … stuck in their own greatness, seemingly unable or unwilling to rhyme outside of the box …

    ^^ This was one of the first times I heard Bilal, It was on Guru’s Jazzmattazz and this song made me a stan…he also appeared a few times on Common’s Like Water For Chocolate that same year, Funky For You, 6th Sense…..

    ^i dont know about u guys, but whenever i hear about an album getting shelved i imagine a giant ass shelf in the basement of the record label, with an alfred the butler lookin ass nigga climbing up a ladder and placing yet another unheard album in the shelf right next to biggie’s third album “Siike, Never Gonna Die Ever”

    Damn, this is some funny shit, I can literally see this nigga starving. LMAO… He look like the type of nigga that If you go out and eat a Mom and Pops sandwich, with all the sauces on it, he still got mayonaisse and mustard on the side of his mouth, and then you gotta constantly tell the nigga ..”hey wipe yo mouth nigga”

    Ol sloppy, stank ass nigga, with a tooth pick in his mouth.

  138. Boosie Says:

    Raekwon…..Remind me of dat nigga, who always gotta Bring a towel errhwhere he go, cause the nigga be sweatin and shit.

    “Unfortunately, they don’t see that separation between Shawn Carter and Jay-Z. As far as they’re concerned, everything I talk about is happening for real. To them, at no point is it entertainment.”

    i thought he really chopped white, and was really shot at…..guess it was said in the name of entertainment rite???
