This coming Sunday, the latest issue of New York Times Style Magazine will be released and rap mogul Jay-Z has an extensive interview inside to go along with his front cover appearance. One of the topics discussed had to do with fatherhood and raising his daughter, Blue Ivy Carter.
Now, more excerpts from the interview have emerged. In one of them, Hov discusses Barack Obama and his thoughts on the upcoming presidential election.
"I've said the election of Obama has made the hustler less relevant. People took it in a way that I was almost dismissing what I am. And I was like: no, it's a good thing! No one came to our neighborhoods, with stand-up jobs, and showed us there's a different way. Maybe had I seen different role models, maybe I'd [have] turned on to that."
He also touches on rap group Odd Future and explains why he wanted them to make an appearance at his "Made in America" festival, which went down at the beginning of the month.
"[Odd Future has an] aversion to corporate America," he explained. "People have a real aversion to what people in power did to the country. So they're just lashing out, like: 'This is the son that you made. Look at your son. Look at what you've done.'"
Check out the full interview when the print is released this weekend.
