“We tend to, as black people—’cause we never had anything, which is understandable—we get to a place and we just think we separate ourself from the culture,” says JAY-Z.

“Like O.J. will get to a space where he’s like, ‘I’m not black, I’m O.J.’ Like Tiger Woods will get to a space and think, ‘I’m above the culture.'”

Kendrick talks about witnessing a black man being murdered in front of his house when he was 5-years-old. 

“The disrespect and the manner that this officer—he was a bad officer, I would say that for sure—that he approached my mother with was completely out of line,” he describes.

“I’ve never had an inferior complex ever,” continues JAY-Z. “I had a sense of who I am. From my mom, I had a strong belief in my talent, so I didn’t defer to anyone.” 

The video ends with a short preview of the official ‘4:44’ visuals, which will be released on Friday at 4.44pm.

JAY-Z’s new album is available now exclusively on TIDAL.
