Jay-Z recently did a photo shoot and interview with Blender Magazine and shares some information on the entertainment value of rap music:
B: At the end of a song on American Gangster you yell out, “It’s just entertainment!” What do you mean by that?
J: It’s my way of saying, “People, stop taking it so seriously — not everything rappers say is true to life.” It’s entertainment, too. If you can watch a movie and see Denzel as a character, you should be able to do the same when you’re listening to rappers. I know we’re always saying, “Keep it real.” But for the most part [he laughs] — it’s not true!
