[Listen] Jay-Z Discusses 'Watch The Throne' Tour, Responds To Indie Record Stores In Interview w/ Hot 97
You're late for a meeting so you decide to pop into Hot 97 to conduct an impromptu interview with Angie Martinez of Hot 97. In the interview Jay-Z touches on numerous topics, including the supposed fall out between Kanye and himself. Most interestingly he touches on the open letter that a bunch of Record Stores sent out last week, and the response is valid I guess. We live in a modern age in which we can turn on this magic box, enter a search query and within a millisecond have what we want. Music leaks daily and Jay said that they didn't work this hard for 8 months for it to leak, and that's why it's solely being released on iTunes firstly: "We took great care to make sure it’s not leaking at all". The interview is an interesting listen and you can check it out below in full and thanks to Hypetrak for upping the interview.
Watch the Throne out on August the 8th with a large US tour going on later this year to boot. Dates are up in the air but go onsale tomorrow after already being pushed back.
