Following his appearance at the Meadows Festival in New York City, JAY-Z traveled to the U.K. to chat and perform on BBC Radio 1. During the candid conversation with host Clara Amfo, Hov discussed his 4:44 album, fatherhood, social media, Donald Trump, and more.
The rapper performed “Family Feud” from 4:44 and his classic collaboration with Linkin Park, “Numb/Encore.” Hov was joined by his longtime engineer, Young Guru.
Watch the interview and performance below.
DJ 4REST, a member of Japanese duo A4, performs a routine using the group’s remixes of JAY-Z and Kanye West‘s “N#ggas in Paris” and Kendrick Lamar‘s “HUMBLE.” In 2014, 4REST competed in the Red Bull 3Style Japan Finals.

MAKJ has an excellent track record on DJcity. The majority of his releases have made the daily Hot Box chart, many of which have also appeared on the monthly Top 50.
His latest offering, a throwback-style remix of Joan Jett’s 1982 anthem, “I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll,” is likely to do the same. The track features moombahton and twerk influences and a prominent Jay-Z sample.
“I love the idea of blending genres,” MAK tells us. “I’ve always done it in my sets, and I wanted to make something I could play live, hence the idea of mixing Joan Jett with Jay-Z. They say opposites attract.”
