YN just threw up some stuff from his Hovie cover story that didn’t make it into the book.
Jay on Yeezy vs. Curtis:
It was Kanye who came up with the idea to go head-to-head right? Were you with the idea at first?
To be honest with you, Kanye called me and I was like, “Man, you ready for that?! ‘cause I know 50. He’s liable to trip ya girlfriend in the party. You ready?’” You know, I thought it was great. Fantastic. Took me 2 seconds. I mean, no one’s going to get hurt. 50 Cent sold a gang of records. You know what I’m saying? Maybe his ego is bruised a little bit, but he sold 700,000 records.
He also talks about where he sees the Roc going, Kanye’s early days as a lyricist and why he signed Uncle Murda.
