A Blueprint to become whatever you want, wouldn’t that be grand? a guide to the do’s and don’ts of your chosen endeavours….well the closest we can get to this, is through the words of those who have done it.

The series comprised of individuals Letterman terms as “personally inspiring”, sees him gain a rather personable and candid perspective from the 21 time Grammy Award winner. One of the most enlightening topics in discussion between the two, is ‘What makes an Individual a good Rapper?’, standing currently as one of the best-selling Musicians of all time, he uses rappers such as Snoop Dogg and Eminem to elaborate his point.
Jay-Z and David Letterman, share words backstage after their Interview
The rapper says, “You can have a great voice, and you can almost say anything,” and “it sounds good.” He then goes on, “I think Snoop Dogg has a great voice he can almost say anything,” before dropping Snoop’s opening line on “Nothin’ But A ‘G’ Thang.”
In the case of Eminem, Jay says “You can be someone like Eminem and just have amazing cadence, and it’s like syncopation… It’s almost like you become the percussion inside the music.” “There [are] multiple ways to be good. Some people just have it all.”
Letterman’s interview with Jay-Z gives you a very rare and of course new watch of a truly remarkable and inspiring individual, who is very assured in the role he now serves to Music and the people.
