So as they took their court side seats alongside nephew Julez, JayOnce entered the Prudential Center to watch the New Jersey Nets take on the Detroit Pistons.
So this clearly shows no interest in having kids anytime soon… He could at least have sat in-between you guys at least! Jheez!
Still sweet though…
And in other Carter news…
As we all anticipate the release date for Jay’s “Decoded” memoirs, he has been reflecting over past lyrics and how he perceived women at that point in time.
Check out what Hov had to say:
While working on his new book, “Decoded” in which the lyrics to his songs are printed out and explained, Jay-Z admits he regrets his songs that didn’t present women…or his opinion of them…in the best light.
“Some [lyrics] become really profound when you see them in writing. Not ‘Big Pimpin.’ That’s the exception. It was like, I can’t believe I said that. And kept saying it. What kind of animal would say this sort of thing? Reading it is really harsh.”
The lyrics to that track mainly talked about him having women sexually available to him at all times, something he has abandoned since marrying Beyonce in 2008.
In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Jay-Z said,
“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 N.W.A, at its core — that was about love for a neighborhood.”
I see his point.
He also said he’d like to hear more about the real challenges facing people today, like the housing crisis and unemployment. Remember the time before gangsta rap when Public Enemy was the CNN for black people? That’s what Jay’s talking about. And he cites hip-hop’s efforts to help Barack Obama elected as proof the community can help foster social change.
“Whether he does a great job or not is almost secondary to what it did for the dreams and the hopes of an entire race. Just based on that alone, it’s a success — the biggest we’ve had. … It’s Martin Luther King’s dream realized. Tangible. In the flesh. You can shake his hand.”
Cannot wait for that!
And so to wrap up our news for the week on the power couple, Kanye & Drake are on the heels of Jay for his lyrical vocals.
Speaking to MTV News Drake disclosed he would love to drop a radio track with Mr Carter:
Although Drake and Jay-Z have collaborated on Blueprint 3’s “We Off That”, “Thank Me Later” & “Light Up”, he still wants more from him!
“I probably wouldn’t title it ‘Light Up 2,’ but there could definitely be potential for a record where me and Jay just spit about life,” said Drake to MTV News, referencing the track from his debut album. “I look forward to making that. I don’t think I’m ready to do it yet, though. If me and Jay do another record … I just want it to be a song. I don’t necessarily want it to be a life/time marker. I would love to do a song with Jay that hits radio. I’d love to do something that’s more musical, as opposed to all that rapping.”
And as well as that the musical genius who created Blueprint 3 Mr Kanye West has also revealed him and his “big bro” are looking to roll out a full length album!
“We putting out a whole album now,” Kanye told MTV when asked about Watch The Throne. “We had done five [songs] so far, and then a few of ‘em, kind of, were out there, and I put them on my album. Sorry Jay. But we got some more, and we going to the south of France at the end of this month just to record new ideas.”
Looks like the Carter planner is full!
