Another interesting topic Jay touches on in the article is his drug-dealing past. He reflects on how he indulged in the illegal activity to make ends meet, but didn’t consider the lives he was destroying in the process.
Jay also touches on the rumor that Beyoncé was not actually pregnant with Blue Ivy.
“It’s just so stupid,” Jay states in the article. “You know, I felt dismissive about it, but you’ve got to feel for her. I mean, we’ve got a really charmed life, so how can we complain? But when you think about it, we’re still human beings. . . . And even in hip-hop, all the blogs—they had a field day with it. I’m like, We come from you guys, we represent you guys. Why are you perpetuating this? Why are you adding fuel to this ridiculous rumor?”
