Home > Entertainment > JAY Z: MAN OF THE YEAR


Well its no secret that all eyes are on Jay-Z and pregnant wife Beyonce’. Whether your “watching the throne” as Jay-Z tours with Kanyw West or your waching for a glimpse of Beyonce and her very famous baby bump, you cant stop watching and waiting for the couples next move. The fact that all eyes are on Jay and Bey, and have been for quite some time, probably has a great amount of influence on why Jay-Z was named in the top 5 Men of the year by GQ Magazine. An honor I have to say is WELL DESERVED. Jay- Z is featured in this months issue of GQ which hits stands Nov. 22 with other honorees; Justin Timberlake, Michael Fassbender (Breakout), Mila Kunis (The Knockout) and talk show host Jimmy Fallon. Known not only as one of hip hops best lyricist but this savy business man and most importantly father-to-be sat down with GQ and talked about fatherhood, working with great friend Kanye West and Music. Check out an excerpt from the issue below.On Kanye’s obsession with perfection: “I think he just can’t help himself. He puts so much into everything, and he’s like, ‘You have to treat it like I treat it.’ It drives you crazy sometimes—like when you’ve put seventy-five versions of a snare on one song and he’s like, ‘No!’ and you’re like, ‘Come on, man.’”
On the concept of “Ni**as in Paris”: “It’s not, like, ‘We’re here! We’re balling harder than everybody. It’s like, ‘I’m shocked that we’re here.’ Still being amazed, still not being jaded. Having so much fun and then stopping and saying, ‘What are we doing here? How did we get here?’”
On announcing his child at the VMAs: “It was actually Bey who wanted to [announce] it. You want to be in control of your life.”
On his relationship with his father: “If your dad died before you were born, yeah, it hurts—but it’s not like you had a connection with something that was real. Not to say it’s any better—but to have that connection and then have it ripped away was, like, the worst. My dad was such a good dad that when he left, he left a huge scar. He was my superhero.”
On whether he’ll play his music for his child: ”Of course—when the time comes, he’ll start with Reasonable Doubt, go from there. There will be a lot of that. And a lot of other records, all pivotal, important records. There’ll be Ready to Die, there’ll beIllmatic.”
On what being a father will mean to him: “Providing- thats not love. Being there- thats more important. I mean, we see that. We see that with all these rich socialites. They’re crying out for attention: they;re hurting for love. Im not being judgmental- Im just making an observation. They’re cruing ou for the love that maybe they didnt get at home, and they got everything. all the material things that they need and want. so we know thats not the key.”

On changing diapers: “Of course, of course. One hundred percent.”
On putting a car seat in the Maybach: “Yeah. Wouldn’t that be great? That would be a great picture.”
