Don’t call it a Q&A session — there were very few As given to even fewer Qs. During the course of his nearly seven-hour, on-and-off Twitter session, Jay-Z preferred to search for people who were tweeting about him rather than responding to inquiries sent to his official handle (@S_C_). In a few cases, he gave them a nice Twitter “BOO!” — imagine seeing that pop up in your @-replies.
When he did answer questions, he spoke about his favorite cereals and business strategies; naturally, he accepted hearty congratulations on his latest album, Magna Carta Holy Grail. There were eight random things that Jay revealed that have already had a massive impact on the universe as we know it, possibly altering the future course of entertainment… or whatever. In no particular order:
1. Miley Cyrus is The Future.
If you weren’t sure what to think about the whole Miley twerking thing or found her new video for “We Can’t Stop” unsettling but you were unable to stop watching it, you can now rest easy. She got the seal of approval from Jay-Z on MCHG track “Somewhereinamerica” (in which he repeats, “twerk Miley, twerk”) but now it’s really official — it’s cool to be Miley.
2. You now get to hear a rare Jay-Z track.
Another intrepid questioner asked why a particular rare track, “Dead Presidents 3,” isn’t out. So Jay gave his permission on the Twitters to producers Just Blaze and Young Guru to release it. Guru did it. Enjoy.
3. Everybody loves Britney Spears’ “Toxic.”
It should go without saying. But now we know Jay-Z’s favorite Britney song. Or that he has a fave Britney song.
