Finally, someone is stopping 106 & Park (at least for one day that is). BET has announced that they will cut todays episode of the popular music video countdown show for a special interview with Jay-Z. The special, titled "Food for Thought: Conversation with Jay-Z," was taped in Sequoia’s restaurant in Manhattan’s South Street Seaport. Set to premiere at 7 p.m. EST today, the show features Hov as he engages in a conversation with Hot 97 radio personality Angie Martinez, journalist Harry Allen and sports commentator Stephen A. Smith.
During the interview, Jay-Z reportedly talks about his marriage with Beyonce, meeting President Obama and even bringing Oprah to Brooklyn. Of course Jigga won't forget to talk about his new "Blueprint 3" album.
In related news, vintage footage of Jay-Z visiting Hot 97 hit the net today. Back in 2006, Jigga went to the Funkmaster Flex show to promote his "Kingdom Come" album but ended up talking about everything including the new internet age and music downloaders before dropping his infamous "Grammy Family" freestyle.
