Old Interview Of Jay-Z Saying He Regrets Some Lyrics In ‘Big Pimpin’ Goes Viral: ‘I Can’t Believe I Said That’

An old interview Jay-Z did with The Wall Street Journal goes viral.

Jay spoke with the Wall Street Journal about how profound most of his lyrics are, while explaining that he regretted writing some of the bars in “Big Pimpin.” “That’s the exception. It was like… I can’t believe I said that,” he said in 2010. “And kept saying it? What type of animal would say this sort of thing. Reading it is really harsh.”

The interview surfaced online, and many media outlets believed it was recent, yet the interview was from 2010. Since those comments, Jay has performed the smash hit tons of time, and it’s still one of the biggest rap songs.

 

The viral interview comes following his collab with Nas on DJ Khaled’s new album. We know Jay doesn’t do much press, but recently he spoke with The Times UK, and spoke about his family, life during the pandemic, social media and more.
