An hour with Jay-Z from the Brooklyn Museum
On an episode of PBS’ “Charlie Rose” that premiered Wednesday, the Brooklyn icon chatted it up with the veteran journalist, and once again Jay-Z drew laughter with his wry jokes and entertained with his engaging conversation. With Beyoncé, his mother and other family members seated in the front row, Jay-Z held court on an array of topics, including Tupac Shakur, his arrest for stabbing a record executive and his drug-dealing past.
The program was taped at the Brooklyn Museum last month, when Jay-Z was in full promotional mode for his “Decoded” book.
My favorite part of the interview is when he corrects Charlie Rose on the pronunciation of the name “Tupac”
