From one of the most respected rappers in hip-hop history to an outstanding entrepreneur, day by day, he continues to expand his portfolio while still taking on new challenges.
Rumored to be not often seen at interview, Jay-Z told The Sunday Times in England after a long time that he looked back on his 30+ years of hip-hop career and explained how he wanted to be remembered by the public.
Jay-Z said. “I don’t know. I’d like people to give me a little bit of my name when talking about legendary artists like Bob Marley. But that’s not what I’m going to say. I’m overcoming a difficult situation with people like me and myself, and I am most proud of providing the courage and opportunity to those who grew up from a similar background.”
Also, in the conversations coming and going, Jay-Z spoke to racism in the United States. “We’re still in the process of stopping Asian hate crimes, etc. We can’t sit in front of spilled milk and weep, but we have to admit that we have milk. Have we arrived? No. But are we farther than 50 years ago? Yeah.”
And regarding his personal life, Jay-Z said that COVID19 has given his family (Beyoncé and their three children) more opportunities to spend time together and has developed into a harmonious family that is more focused on relying on each other.
