Audio: Jay-Z Speaks to Chicago’s WGCI

aajayciara

Cool interview, he addressed pretty much everything that he told Angie Martinez in 4 breaks yesterday in just a few minutes today. Here’s a rundown of the events:

To plug his upcoming concert in the Chi on July 7, Hov calls in to WGCI:
He talks more about the coin toss
The Wendy’s commercial that used autotune.
DJ Webstar’s a young dude who doesn’t understand.
How him and B got bills to pay so they tour.**
Advice he gave Rihanna.
He wants Kobe to get his ring.
Nets are breakin’ ground in BK in Sept.
His top 5: Big, Pac, Scarface, Eminem and Andre 3 Stacks
Lauryn Hill is GOAT of female MC’s.
And BP3 (a.k.a. The New Classic) is mostly Kanye but Timbo got some heat on there and he’s still recording.

**B she only ride G3.

Listen here.

Props to YN

  2. HOLLA MANN Says:

    With rap becoming more of a drama show than a actual art form the good people at Street Commodity Ent. proudly present the best unsigned with lines…… The and only Holla Mann hails from the grimey streets of Flint michigan with the rhyme skill of the best out and the heart of a soldier at his finest. Equipped with enough 16′s to upset your more established artist Holla Mann brings forth his debut mixtape series L.I.V.E Thru ME ( life-in-various-events). The 13 track opus is a soundtrack for those from all aspects of life be it ya’ bodega hustler or your average 9 to 5′er. Holla Mann’s uncanny ability to cover a wide range of genres from gutter,conceptual, lyrical and street gives listeners a reason to feel every track. Known for his metaphors, realism and ability to slaughter verses this force to be wreckoned with in the form of a man will make you holla for more! The world has been awaiting a artist like this, so open ya’ ears’ and put ya’ eye’s forward the futures before you

    No one will ever put Jay in his place, A) Even if hes half the MC he was back in 2000 (as some of your like to say), Hes still miles ahead of the rest. B) The people wont let him lose.

    with B) your absolutely right…I touched on that this morning. Jay is one of the GOATs no doubt, but that dont mean I have to give him a pass when he slacks the fuck off. So to ME (and should go for any other fan NOT stan that won’t credit every Jay song as classic no matter the lyrics) he can easily be put in his place.

    I think the sad part of Max’s predicament is that it had to transpire at all.

    If he did really do it, it’s sad that he felt that that was an option & sad it came to that. I feel bad for people with a furute who make bad decisions & A part of me wishes that he would have played it smarter & took his career more serious. Not as a stan or kin, but as a fellow black man. & any of us could have chosen the street life instead of whatever we are doing now. We all know how appealing it looks from the outside & we all know once you are in it, it is hard (II) to get out.

    I am not passing any judgment on Max. IMO its just sad that another kid with a future now lost it because of a dumb decision. (& the guy that got murdered is a whole other conversation that I feel somewhat bad about.)
