In case you missed it, check out Jay-Z’s interview on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher last night. This is one of the best interviews I’ve seen in a minute. I’ve always considered Jay-Z a lyrical genius, well…apparently Bill Maher does too! Maher presented Jiggaman, who’s known for not writing down his lyrics, a bound, hard copy book that lists all of his lyrics to date. The book was also embossed with the letter “B” for
Beyonce Jay’s hometown of Brooklyn.
Maher took time to break down a few of Jay-Z’s lyrics and they also discussed Jay’s many retirement efforts. Jay even talked about his upcoming 40th birthday, December 2nd, as Maher jokingly called him middle-aged. Peep the interview below:
