Jay-Z speaks out about Kanye and Obama

Jay-Z opens up in the Feb. issue of Interview magazine and shares his thoughts on several subjects including his relationships with Kanye West and President Barack Obama.
His relationship has changed with Kanye since they first began working with each other, said the rapper.

“Well, he’s really more of a peer now. You know, before, he was more a new guy trying to get on—a fan of the music that I’ve made and my lifestyle—so things were a little different. But he’s an extraordinary person. He has these ideas and these things that he wants to do and places he wants to go, and he’s really passionate about them. He’s very sincere.”


Jay-Z also dishes about his relationships with Obama and Bill Clinton.


“It’s unbelievable because it’s so far away from where I come from. We were the kids who were ignored by every politician. We didn’t have the numbers, the vote, to put anybody in office, because no matter who was in the office, we didn’t think that it would affect change where we lived. So nobody went out and voted. For me, being with Obama or having dinner with Bill Clinton . . . It’s crazy. It’s mind-blowing, because where I come from is just another world. We were just ignored by politicians—by America in general.”
