More Excerpts From Jay-Z’s XXL Interview

XXL’s October issue on newsstands September 15.

You’ve been getting a lot of heat about your second single “Run This Town,” featuring Kanye and Rihanna. Critics and the blog world have said ’Ye out rapped you.

I think that thing has gone a little too far. I think it’s more about that than the song now. What I’m saying is that’s just life. If [whose verse was better] was the thing, and we based [song quality] on that, after I’ve done 400 songs, I’m sure once the average of who was better on the song weighs out, I’m pretty high. Some nights [L.A. Lakers player] Pau Gasol can score more points than Kobe Bryant—not saying that Kanye is Pau Gasol, ’cause you have to be really clear with that—[but] as long as I’ve been in the game, that’s going to happen, once or twice or even three times.

Because you had so much time to live with this new album, do you think it’s your most thoughtful body of work?

No, it’s just the approach. I don’t think it changed the music any. You can look at it both ways. The Blueprint was all natural. You could tell the rawness of the spontaneous thoughts. Or you can have someone who plans and plots and makes sure everything is the same. Lyor [Cohen, CEO of Warner Music Group] asked me, after he listened to the [new] album, “Did you mess up by putting an album out every year? Should you have taken your time and done it like this one?” And I was like, “No, it’s just process.” I don’t think The Blueprint was bad. But this album has to come out. It’s just really cohesive. It feels really good.

What would you say is The Blueprint 3’s grand statement?

I keep using this phrase “new classic,” because it has classic sounds and instrumentation, like how music was recorded before. That’s why the whole album cover [features] white instruments just left in the corner, no color. It’s all about the instruments. It feels classic in that approach, but it’s new subject matter, new flows. It’s not like an Amy Winehouse thing: a take on what was already done. I mean, if you listen to “D.O.A.” just the sax alone, those type of sounds. The subject matter is right now. It’s a hot-button issue right now.

It’s funny that you stress the subject matter being current. One criticism of “D.O.A.” has been that the topic is a year old.

A year past or a year early?

A year too old. Music was being saturated by Auto-Tune the most last year. So were you thinking business first, like, Kanye’s coming out with this 808s & Heartbreak album, so I’m going to hold off on the criticism ’til he’s in the clear?

No, that’s not how it happened. It really just happened in the studio. We were just having a discussion about the game and music and where everything is going. So No ID plays this track, and Kanye jumps up. Actually, Kanye gave me the idea. He jumps up and is like, “Man, this is hard. This is against everything.” I don’t know if he knew where I was going to take it, but he sparked the idea. I came back the next day and did the record.

What’s puzzling is that your own buddies, like Kanye and Pharrell, wear the brightest shirts and tightest jeans, but you’re clearly not going at them. You’re going after the cats that are trying to be like them, and not themselves. Correct?

Yeah, once it becomes… A trend is a trend. I follow trends. I set trends. Now, when a trend becomes a gimmick, it’s time to get rid of it. As far as hip-hop. Like, when they were saying “bling bling” on CNN, it’s time to never say that word again. It was just about the aggression of everything. I saw everyone, ’cause it was successful, following one path. You turn on the radio, and that’s all you hear. I’m not saying I hate T-Pain. What I’m talking about is a trend that’s becoming a gimmick. And if we continue down this path, we’re going to open the door for another genre of music. Same way when rock was doing hair metal it opened the door even wider for hip-hop to come through and put rock music in trouble for 10 years and more. Right now, there are a lot of indie bands coming out, which is making rock more exciting: the MGMTs and the Kings of Leons. You keep messing around, making generic music, people are going to start turning off one at a time. And if these guys [keep] making great music, guess what? [Fans are] gonna go to them. If you look back in the history of music, that’s what happens all the time. I’m just saying, Stay up. Be aware. Be innovative. Let’s keep making this shit interesting. I love Drake. I’m not hating on young people. Like, when people say that, I’m like, What are you talking about? It’s just stupid. I’m not hating on young people. I love Drake. I worked with him on the album. Every time they ask me what I’m listening to, it’s So Far Gone and Kings of Leon. Them two [acts] owe me money. I’m not Bill Russell, [saying] Michael Jordan ain’t shit. I’m saying Lil Wayne and Kanye are like LeBron and Kobe. My job as someone at the forefront of the game is to leave it in a better position than when I came in. Same way that Russell [Simmons] left it to me. ’Cause this thing saved my life. Literally. So I have a responsibility to it karmically. And after that it’s on you. I did my part. I made “D.O.A.” I said it. I made the statement. I made the push. Here, y’all take it from here.

    After listening to BP3 from top 2 bottom several times, it really is a lackluster album!!! Than when that CL2 bomb came yesterday, and I listened to that, I don’t see how I’m gonna be able to put BP3 back in the CD changer… BP3 is not a bad album, but its not a really good album either… it has no vibe & no essence & no cohesiveness to it. I’m all about ppl having their favorite artists, everybody is entitled to have that. But don’t bullshit yourself… like for me Nas is my favorite MC, but when Streets Disciple dropped, just b/c he is my favorite it doesn’t mean I can’t be honest and say the album wasn’t hot, b/c it wasn’t… and I don’t see how a “real” Jay Z fan can say this album is hot!

    now he’s 40 so jiggaman is dead
    big pimpin’, 99problem, hard knock life and dirt off
    do it again, that was jiggaman type of shit… now jayz wants more musically coalition and experience ! he’s not a multi millionaire emcee
    he’s a mogul musician now ! that’s hit, he listens Coldplay and thang like dat. he ain’t hungry, his legacy is done, now he will make mogul music !!!!

    just hope dat that will be with confirmed artist more than cudi and rihanna.
    musically :
    i wanna see jigga with scarface, beanie
    i wanna see jay with nas
    i wanna see jayz with coldplay, the roots
    that can be great combination for him AND FOR HIPHOP !
    jay/beyoncé album ? but i prefer the first three propositions

Period.

    on a side not… its it me or are we always so damn quick to hate on our own. hip hop is ours and the main detractors of the genre are its own fans. i will never understand that shit.

    2. a star is born
    3. off that
    4. venus vs. mars
    5. hate / doa

    3 & 4 are interchangeable…but those top 2 are def top 2. j.cole is dope on ” a star is born”. the wordplay on venus vs. mars is epic. and i like off that because the beat is nuts, flow is good, hook is good, and i can get swole in the gym to it YADIG

  59. Dashing Says:

    Ye’s verse on RTT is so overrated.

    ===============================

    Co-sign. Jay’s verses on Run This Town are meant to be catchy and not overly lyrical. You can hear it in the flow. Ye’s is less constructed so because of that it sounds like a dope variation whereas Jay’s is the same on both verses but that don’t make it better. Plus Jay sticks to the theme of the song. Kanye’s best line is “What you think I rap for to drive a f–kin Rav4?” It’s not that hot.

  60. AmpGeez a.k.a Ni@@as Is Puss Says:

    Stans don’t have the capability for honest critical thought.

  61. MF TREE Says:

    I lurk from time to time and have become fond of some of these Nahggers, but I’m with Amp on this one.. The random Islam shit is a little strange.. Shit’s poppin up out left field.

    People just need to chill and smoke a L when it comes to Religion.. it’s like i’m totally cool living my life not knowing whats about to happen to me when I go.. I don’t need some Religion to tell me about some shit they have no idea about..

    People worry to damn much, make some money, fuck some bitches and listen to some good music… stop worrying about shit you can’t control.

    oh and BP3 > KC & AG
    shits dope from front to back

  62. g7 Says:

    top 5 on bp3:

    1. run this town

    ======
    I haven’t listened yet, but I pray this is not true.

  63. Mr. 2 step Says:

    You can’t take anything a nahrighter or a blog head says seriously. They are the WORST a&r’s in the history of music…80% of them was praising charles hamilton and calling him next…the sites owner thinks Jay rock is next up…they think Joe Budden is hot and some random dude with “lyrics” is next to blow

    Worst of all 95% percent of them papoose was hot and is the truth…They said lil wayne was trash and unwillingly had to admit that He was “decent” in fear of being a hater…They HATE to co-sign deeper than rap cause it doesn’t sound like their “pure” rap..

    They claim they’re nas fans but don’t like Bp3 but think untitled was hot. Lol. and wtf?…they ears are still stuck in the 90’s…if its rooted in the 90’s era its hot and good, if its rooted in the now era, its garbage…All the Hot rappers out they hate because their era is gone…they hate that their way of life in hip-hop is now obsolete and their opinion doesn’t matter…

    Bottom line you can’t trust a nahrighter on hip-hop music coming out today…their stuck in the past…these niggas still think Doom is next up..smh

    top 5 on bp3:

    1. run this town
    2. a star is born
    3. off that
    4. venus vs. mars
    5. hate / doa

    3 & 4 are interchangeable…but those top 2 are def top 2. j.cole is dope on ” a star is born”. the wordplay on venus vs. mars is epic. and i like off that because the beat is nuts, flow is good, hook is good, and i can get swole in the gym to it YADIG
    ________________________________________________________________

    wow you just picked the worst top 5 on that album my dude….a star is born is aight and it don’t even crack top 7….I swear niggas aint listening to music.

    Just cause j.cole rapped on it…sounding like a 90’s throwback…niggas is gassed and think its hot, when the beat is one of the worst on the bp3

  66. Boos Bigelow Says:

    already home is like the best track on BP3

    You can’t take anything a nahrighter or a blog head says seriously. They are the WORST a&r’s in the history of music…80% of them was praising charles hamilton and calling him next…the sites owner thinks Jay rock is next up…they think Joe Budden is hot and some random dude with “lyrics” is next to blow

    Worst of all 95% percent of them papoose was hot and is the truth…They said lil wayne was trash and unwillingly had to admit that He was “decent” in fear of being a hater…They HATE to co-sign deeper than rap cause it doesn’t sound like their “pure” rap..

    They claim they’re nas fans but don’t like Bp3 but think untitled was hot. Lol. and wtf?…they ears are still stuck in the 90’s…if its rooted in the 90’s era its hot and good, if its rooted in the now era, its garbage…All the Hot rappers out they hate because their era is gone…they hate that their way of life in hip-hop is now obsolete and their opinion doesn’t matter…

    Bottom line you can’t trust a nahrighter on hip-hop music coming out today…their stuck in the past…these niggas still think Doom is next up..smh

    ^^^^^^^^^

    how can you even say that…you’re honestly going to tell me the pharrell extra homo track or mr. hudson track is better than any of those 5? particularly a star is born? the first two tracks are plain boring…i can understand maybe the jeezy track or the track with alicia being put in there but there is no way a star is born isn’t in the top 3, let alone top 5.

    co-sign shit slaps…swizz coulda come harder with the beat tho.

    and “a star is born” might become my favorite track on the album given some time.

    man ya niggas is some haters real talk, yea on raekwons nuts wit that ob4cl2. that shit maybe hot but dude is 40 now, he aint on da strip no more wit crills in his pocket duckin 50, it 09 now he gotta come wit new shit that crack rap/ mafioso shit is played out. as for bp3 shit was ill i dont give a fuck what any1 says, ya niggas say big pimpin is 1 of jays best songs but to me that shit is pure trash. but ya hatin on a star is born? where da science in that, a star is born is deep that shit wasnt meant for hov 2 be on some real lyrical shit he was statin how pretty much all the greats came up & left room 4 j. cole to shine on it. & ya hatin on kingdom come that shit was hot 2. ya hate on those 2 albums but ya dont mention how vol. 1 was a piece of shit compared 2 everything else he made. hov would even say vol. 1 wasnt all that thats why he dont listen to it. like he said on da 1st couple bars on on to the next one, he aint gon go bak to the same bp1 formula, if ya want his old shit go buy on amazon.com & stop bitchin, i’m a hov , he’s my fave rapper. but alot of songs that ya consider classics is trash to me especially joints of vol 1, vol. 3 & the dynasty. wit that said my fave bp3 tracks r: the whole album is dope maybe wit da exception of hate i think that song was wack, young forever coulda been betta. i think if he woulda had history & brooklyn go hard in place of those tracks it woulda been sick but overall i give it 4.5/5 & fuck wat ya say

  92. OED Says:

    y’all niggas hate on Rae cuz he old, then go watch the old nukka in the movie shoot up the building….
    foolishness.

    the hate on rae (in sheeps clothing) = (closet) love for joe budden

    no tracks on CL2 will be featured on Dance Party USA, so it’s wack???

    some of y’all are talking like you wear one sparkly glove, penny loafers, and high water (skinny) jeans.
