In a recent conversation on People’s Party with Talib Kweli, N.O.R.E. openly shared his views on JAY-Z’s recent interview with Gayle King. The host of Drink Champs expressed his belief that Jigga could have had a more significant impact by choosing a hip-hop media outlet for the discussion.
During the extensive three-hour chat on Monday (November 13), N.O.R.E. and Talib Kweli delved into the cultural significance of podcasting. They noted JAY-Z’s noticeable absence from this space and discussed the potential for influential figures to contribute to the culture through such platforms.
In a CBS segment focused on the Book of Hov exhibition, JAY-Z covered various topics, ranging from the viral $500,000 dinner scenario to insights into his lyric-writing process and favorite albums. N.O.R.E. expressed his belief that these topics would have been more fitting for platforms like People’s Party, Joe Budden’s podcast, Drink Champs, or Million Dollaz Worth of Game.
Sharing his perspective, N.O.R.E. stated, “I love JAY-Z. He sat down with Gayle King, it’s a great relationship … would I rather him sit with the People’s Party? Would I rather him sit with Joe Budden’s podcast or Drink Champs or Million Dollaz Worth of Game? Of course.”
