Jay Z‘s recent 4:44 release served as an introspective look at the rapper’s career and life.
Much like his wife Beyoncé‘s Lemonade album, Hov addressed the relationship strains that affected his marriage in 4:44.
Jay’s recent New York Times sit-down interview sheds more light on the rapper’s marriage and his relationship with Kanye West.
In the interview, Jay revealed that at the same time he and Beyoncé were working on their albums, their art was more like a therapy session and almost resulted in a joint album.
It happened- we were using out art almost like a therapy session. And we started making music together. And then the music she was making at that time was further along. So her album came out as opposed to the joint album that we were working on.
The 8-time Grammy nominee also goes on to reveal that he has genuine love for Kanye West, despite their complicated relationship. Hov adds, ‘I [walked to] Kanye the other day, just to tell him, like, he’s my brother. I love Kanye. I do. It’s a complicated relationship with us.’
