Jay-Z Rolling Stone Cover

jay-z-rolling-stone-cover-nahright

Jay-Z covers the latest issue of Rolling Stone, which is on newsstands now, and gives contributing editor Mark Binelli a glimpse into the sort of daily life the self-proclaimed God MC leads at the age of 40:

While Jay is notoriously private about his life with wife Beyoncé, Binelli gets the rapper to let down his guard, and Jay reveals his superstar better half vetoed a piece of artwork he’d bought for their 8,000-square-foot Tribeca penthouse. The black-and-white Laurie Simmons photograph in question depicted “a noirishly lit pistol with a pair of women’s legs emerging from the handle… Beyoncé sent it back and had it replaced with a similar Simmons piece, only depicting a perfume bottle instead of a gun.” Binelli also encourages Jay to open up about his biggest challenges as president of Def Jam (the most frustrating meeting? “Honestly? All of them”) and his one and only experience in therapy, when as Binelli writes, “The psychiatrist gave him tea that made him sleepy and asked him questions like, ‘Who are your best friends?’ “

Jay also professes his love for the indie rock scene, and brings up his most recent crush, Grizzly Bear. There’s been a trend of rappers fooling around with this genre of music, aside from Kanye’s blog picks and that horrid Lil Wayne rock album, as even Drake recently mentioned he’d only start a label if he could sign Away From Home tour openers Francis and the Lights, who produced Karaoke on Thank Me Later.

    ^oh yeah? the same one’s who rape little children? The same ones who butt fuck other dudes? And need your money and need you to come worship? now you want to listen to them? aaahh i get it. Ray Jay is a typing contradiction. Go listen to fancy you faggot.


    Woah woah woah….the amount of ignorance in that statement is too much to even digest.

    How you gonna eat an animal that would eat a dead carcus. That would eat its own shit. Eat garbage. Eat anything. And whose body doesn’t digest food for like 36 hours. That means you could be eating a pig with nothing but the most vile shit in its blood stream.
