Jay-Z Talks To The Wall Street Journal

Lucky lefty talks to the Journal about his new book as well as a few things I've never heard him put into words. It's kinda dope. He says the next big concert he wants to do is Central Park which may have been done a million times before but not by a guy like Jay-Z. Check out a little excerpt I found interesting below and continue to read the rest of the interview here.

WSJ: What would you change about hip-hop if you could?

Jay-Z: We have to find our way back to true emotion. This is going to sound so sappy, but love is the only thing that stands the test of time. "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill" was all about love. Andre 3000, "The Love Below." Even NWA, at its core, that was about love for a neighborhood.

We're chasing a lot of sounds now, but I'm not hearing anyone's real voice. The emotion of where you are in your life. The mortgage scandal. People losing their jobs. I want to hear about that.
