Jay-Z interview with Tim Westwood and more

Check out Jay-Z’s latest interview with Tim Westwood. He touches on a couple of subjects including new music, rumors and more.

Jay-Z has dropped two tracks that were originally destined for his new album Blueprint 3, the Oasis-taunting “Jockin’ Jay-Z” and Santigold-sampling “Brooklyn Go Hard,” won’t be making the album’s final track list.

Speaking recently to Radio 1’s Zane Lowe about his much talked-about headline performance at the 2008 Glastonbury festival was all about breaking down barriers.

His performance caused a media storm after Noel Gallagher said it was “wrong” to have a hip hop headliner.

Jay-Z opened his set with a cover of the Oasis’ Wonderwall and playing along with a guitar.

He told Zane: “I felt like breaking down the barriers. There’s a few people that wanted to see the concert and everything in its traditional form but that’s not the way of the world.

“It felt like once I got to the people, they were excited. I had to be good. I was so focused on that. Just to really perform and put it out there.”

Speaking of his surprising stint on the guitar, he said: “I was actually backstage trying to get that little piece together 10 minutes before the show.

“I should’ve practiced. I wanted to at least act like the chords were right.”

Jay-Z said that he’s still a huge fan of Wonderwall.

“We always play it,” he said. “I have a restaurant called the Spotted Pig. We have this small room, it’s like a back room, about 100 people can fit in there and we play it all the time and we just go crazy.”
