Johnnie_Black:Jay did anybody ever told you that you couldn't rap? Tried to put you down?

Jay-Z:All the time.If you're gonna make it in this business, you gotta have a strong belief in yourself. For every two people that love you, there's gonna be two people that hate you.

martini:Who do you think is the greatest producer around now? and who is your favourite to work with??

Jay-Z:It's a toss up between Rick Rubin and Dr. Dre for the greatest producer. Right now, I think Kanye is the best out now and my favorite to work with, although I have a great time with Timbaland and Pharrell

Hazard304: What is your process for making a song when first getting the beat?

Jay-Z: I try to figure out what the song is saying and what emotion does it convey. That's the first thing I think about.

shamarr: How do you stay so grounded, fam? What keeps you so chill? How do you stay so focused?

Jay-Z:Wow, that's a great question. I guess because success or money don't change you. It enhances who you already were. Since I was already cool, I'm super duper duper cool. Hahahahaha...and really modest.

Rahulinho:What was the first thing you bought after your first check in this buisness

Jay-Z: You must not know too much about the rap business. Hahah. "Waitin on royalties..." Ghostface said.

platinumdiva:If you could work with any artist (dead or alive) that you have NOT worked with, who would it be? (male or female)

Jay-Z:Marvin Gaye, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, etc... It goes on forever.

tmontana:Jay, I just got meat suace on my pants. What should I do?

Jay-Z:Hahahahahahahahaha.

JPoloEnT:How do you feel about acting? Any plans for any movies in the future?

Jay-Z:Yeah... I hope to eventually get around to that.

Birdie06: How would you describe the rap game in this time period?

Jay-Z: It feels like it's waiting on the next movement, the next generation of stars.

pharell360:What are your thoughts about Fishscale that faces a great start ?

Jay-Z:I think it's one of the most creative albums in hip-hop in a long time. It's Ghost at his best. We had a strong debut.

kianicole:What's your favorite city to perform in besides your hometown NY?

Jay-Z:It's between Philly and Virginia.

milman:Did u start free stylin before u started writing?

Jay-Z: No... I started writing first.

T: So Jay, what's your favorite track off College Dropout?

Jay-Z:Spaceship and Two Words

dee-jay06:What made you start your own record label?

Jay-Z:I couldn't get a record deal.

Suha:So what was today's meeting about?

Jay-Z:Just the radio, video, and marketing pictures on about 20 artists.

Spox:Do you remember your first concert (really first :) ) ?

Jay-Z:I didn't go to concerts until I was in the music business.

EsqMrs: You're at dinner with 5 people (dead or alive) to ask about life, love, and their experiences. Who would those 5 be?

Jay-Z:Marvin Gaye, Bob Marley, Martin, Malcolm, Muhammad Ali

cartiercutie:How do we really know that its you?

Jay-Z:Put your phone number up. I'll call you back

Jay-Z:Hold on. I'm making a phone call.

Hazard304:Who's your favorite comedian of all-time?

Jay-Z:Richard Pryor followed close by Robin Harris and early Eddie Murphy.

cartiercutie: He really did just call me!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jay-Z:Told you so! God Bless you too! Tell your brother to send his cd to the address on the back of any Def Jam cd.
