Lots has happened since Jay-Z shared his most recent album 4:44, including the release of several music videos like MaNyfaCedGod which appeared on YouTube just yesterday. As controversial and talked-about the body of music has been, he hasn’t personally contributed anything to the discussions about it aside from some footnotes on iHeartRadio — until now. His first interview since 4:44 appeared on Rap Radar podcast where he sat down to discuss the process, unconventional debut of the album, and some of the beef sparked by the misinterpreted line “Hello? What they say? Don’t put money in your ear?” If you have Tidal, check out the podcast below. A follow-up can be expected, as tweeted by Rap Radar host Brian “B.Dot” Miller.
