Live Lounge

Fearne Cotton 11am weekdays, Jo Whiley on Saturdays


Jay-Z came to Jo's house to play tunes, shoot some hoops and eat some cookies!

He talked to Jo about what it's like to grow up in Brookyln and the turning point in his life where he realised he needed to change his lifestyle. He spoke of his 'wise mother' who let him make his own mistakes but instilled great values in him.

He shared with Jo his views on Kanye West, who he says is 'like a little brother to him'. He spoke of their friendship, the VMA's and Kanye jumping on tables whilst Jay-Z was trying to get him to record an album.

He performed Encore and Roc Boys, which you can hear by clicking on the audio link above.
