Jay-Z December XXL Cover Story Preview Pt. 2

Is up now


Speaking of taking shots, there’s a certain veteran Def Jam artist who continues to blame you for his recent sales problems. Are you surprised at what LL’s been saying?
Yeah, I’m definitely surprised. ’Cause, you know, like, I got a lot respect for him. He’s a legend in the game, and you can’t market LL. You’re LL. That’s it. Nobody really wants to look at themselves. He’s had a long, long career. Sometimes it works, sometimes it don’t work. Sometimes the stars line up and magic is in the right place. Sometimes it ain’t. Who can I blame about my last album going two million? L.A., you piece of shit! [Laughs] That’s just how it goes. You can market to death. The people ultimately decide. And the people are not saying that was a great album they missed. Are the people saying that? 

He also speaks on the Dehaven campaign, Capo’s deal with Sony, and whether or not he’s staying at Def Jam.

    Nah, it’s Hovember.

    Honestly.. LL’s last album, the one with the JLo collabo… The one before that, headsprung? Yeah. It went Gold. He went Plat on his 2002 album because everything went plat that year. Why the FUCK is he bitching about Jay-Z? Did he really think he was gonna sell 2 million????????
