jay z bbc radio 1 live lounge

During his recent stop in the UK, which included a headlining set at V Festival, JAY-Z delivered his first BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge performance in almost a decade. Joined by Young Guru and a choir, Hov performed “Family Feud,” off his new album 4:44, and “Numb/Encore,” which he dedicated to the late Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington.

Jay also sat down with BBC Radio 1’s Clara Amfo to discuss his career trajectory from Reasonable Doubt to 4:44, social media, being inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame (and his memorable Twitter speech), Blue Ivy’s freestyle, his next album (“I have some ideas”) and the current political climate in the United States. “This guy, I’m looking at him like, ‘man, this is a joke.’ I can’t even say with all due respect; with all disrespect,” he says. “He’s not a very sophisticated man, especially when it comes to the idea of: until everyone’s free, no one’s free.”
