Jay-Z was on Hot 97 yesterday (Halloween) for an Interview with Angie Martinez. He spoke on many topics in the 30+ minute session including his relationships with 50 Cent and Nas, on Def Jam artists being mad, (even threatening to push his album up to the 14th to compete with The Game, time will tell) and his thoughts on the Swagger Jacker that was released some time ago, which is quoted…
“…my thing is, if you take my work. I mean like 400 or something songs, I don’t know the number. Right, if you take my work and you take songs that interpret songs of other people’s work, it will be less then like 10% now. Somebody on the internet’s probably doing it right now…”
“…if I was the only one doing it, then I’d understand that. That’s not uncommon, that’s part of hip hop. I just make smashes with em’. Some dudes be doing it for nothing. My joints be like smashes! I’m sorry, forgive my arrogance…*laughs.”
Jay Z also said he is working with Green Lantern for a mixtape entitled the Presidential Invasion Mixtape, which he promised would include all new songs and exclusive freestyles that won't be featured on his the album, Kingdom Come.
“I’ve got this one joint, wooooow. I wanna put it on the album it’s so crazy. But it’s not really my track,” Jay reveals to Hot 97.
