Seeking a Renaissance in San Francisco
NPR – Fresh Air’s Terry Gross recently interviewed the Rap mogul, Jay-Z. The interview is extremely candid and touches on many of the themes in Jay-Z’s new book, Decoded. He talks of his life in Brooklyn to the Grey Album to Katrina. He even quoted one of his earliest rhymes, which he wrote when he was just 9: ‘I’m the king of hip-hop / Renewed like the Reebok / The key in the lock / Words so provocative/ As long as I live.” Jay-Z says that when he looks back on that rhyme now, he thinks, “Wow, that was pretty prophetic.”
