Jay Z Still Has Beef With ‘Billboard’ In New Interview: Watch

105b80ea606dadec4911e519fe0d5de8 Jay Z Still Has Beef With ‘Billboard’ In New Interview: Watch

Jay Z is stil bitter about that chart snub that came with his million-copy Magna Carta Holy Grail Samsung deal, as he fired some shots at Billboard in a new interview posted on his Life + Times site. “They work for us,” he said of Billboard. ”Their job is to encourage the business to bring in new revenue streams, not to discourage me. If you’re not with the changing times, you’re irrelevant to me. I’m going to move on.”

Jay says the Samsung deal was predicated on a couple factors: first, that the music industry is dying and needs new business models like this one. And secondly, that he wasn’t gunning for a No. 1 spot or looking to game the system, but merely seizing an opportunity for a deal that only an artist of his caliber could garner.

Over the course of the 28-minute video, Jay didn’t just talk about the chart gatekeepers and their place in the withering industry, of course. He also discussed his desire to groom the upcoming generation of artists, hip-hop’s place in culture and his artistic process.
