Jay-Z recently talked about how he feels hip-hop is going global and how he finds inspiration with the world accepting rap music. Still in awe of how far the hip-hop culture has gone, Hov spoke about rap appearing on everything from commercials to world championship games. "The world is inspiring me," he said in an interview with MTV. "I get out and see the world and more of the world is accepting of our music and what we do. I'm just inspired by the whole thing and how big hip-hop can be and how much of a phenomenon it is. You couldn't imagine hip-hop being at the World Series. I touched the championship trophy before A-Rod and the Vince Lombardi trophy before the Saints."
Jay went on to say "you couldn't imagine that happening 10 years ago. How about five years ago? I'm saying that to say that the journey hip-hop has taken and we are right now, there's no imitation to it … still. Still!"
