BBC documentary tries to explain Jay-Z to British folks (Video)


    Remember that flame-up that happened over Jay-Z headlining Glastonbury, and how British people lost their minds over some guy they apparently don’t know (or like) having that spot? Well, the BBC produced a documentary tying to explain Jay-Z to British people (he’s a rapper, he’s huge in the U.S., he’s good, he’s from the hood, etc.). I can’t imagine anyone who has had a passing interest in hip-hop in, say, the last 10 years, wouldn’t know all of this, but apparently this stuff is of some worth on the BBC. The whole documentary is pretty long, to watch the whole thing, go here. [Real Talk NY]
