Vanity Fairâ€™s editor Lisa Robinson caught up with Jay-Z for their November issue and was able to get the 43 yr. old rapper to spill some quite interesting information with his fans.
Jay-Z talks about his past life as a drug dealer and how that has helped him become a wise business man as well as be able to help in his new role as a sports agent.Â He says â€œI know about budgets.Â I was a drug dealer.Â To be in a drug deal, you need to know what you can spend, what you need to re-up.â€Â
One small detail Jay did mention about dealing drugs that will be a lesson for all is that at some point, you have to have an exit strategy, because your window is very small; youâ€™re going to get locked up or youâ€™re going to die.Â Â Those were his words exactly.
Just reading the article gives you a since of pride that Jay-Z has for his daughter Blue Ivy.Â He tells Robinson that Beyonceâ€™ says their 18-month-old prefers Jayâ€™s music over hers.Â Jay says â€œThatâ€™s not true.â€ But he does admit â€œThis album was new [Magna Carta]Â she loves all the songs.Â Â She plays a song and she goes, â€˜More, Daddy, moreâ€¦Daddy song.â€™ Sheâ€™s my biggest fan.â€
Jay also boast that Beyonceâ€™ was a good charming Southern girl until she met him.Â Robinson asks is she not a good girl anymore.Â Hov says â€œNah, sheâ€™s gangsta now.â€
