In an interview with The New York Times, the rap mogul confirmed he and Yoncé did indeed collaborate on a joint album while working on their respective releases, 4:44 and Lemonade. The two are getting progress in resolving their issues as according to Jay-Z, he already talked with West.
"I grew so much from the experience. I think she's incredible". Being aware of it in everyday life puts you at such ... an advantage.
He added that what happened nearly led the pair - who now share three children together - to divorce. That's whythe magazine asked why the most famous couple in music would want to be so honest. But you brought my family into it, now it's a problem with me.
Why you taking a gander at me? "I think she's incredible". You're in this space where you're harming, and you think I see you, so you don't need me to take a gander at you.
At one point, JAY-Z spoke about his well-loved song, The Blueprint's "Song Cry", and how it is possible to be sad even at the height of success.
"You have to survive". So you go into survival mode, and when you go into survival mode, what happens? You close down all feelings. "So even with women, you gonna shut down emotionally, so you can't connect".
Rumours have swirled around Beyonce and Jay-Z's marriage for several years but now the rapper has admitted to infidelity, suggesting that it was caused by a survival mode he found himself in.
"It didn't occur in that way", he pushes. Um, we still have a lot of that music, ' he added. "And then the music she was making at that time was further along", Jay explained.
Jay said collaborating on an album helped the couple work through their highly-publicized issues. Uh, maybe not use hurricane because so many people are being affected right now. "The best place is ideal amidst the agony". What's more, it was awkward. And we're both entertainers.
"So, you know, most people don't want to do that. I believe she's astounding". I love Kanye. I do. "It's a convoluted association with us". 'Cause, you know - Kanye came into this business on my label. It's dependably been similar to a bit of hidden rivalry with your enormous sibling. And we're both entertainers.
"However, that happens", he focuses.
"Hopefully when we're 89 we look at this six months or whatever time and we laugh at that".
Though we might never know what happened between Beyoncé and Jay Z, the rapper recent words shine a light on what may have occurred, as well as the importance of going to therapy. Um, we still have a lot of that music. These are the things that are unsatisfactory to me. This is what I feel.' I'm sure he feels that I've done things to him as well. "I'm not an impeccable individual by no extend".
