Rapstar Jay-Z did an impromptu interview with Angie Martinez of Hot 97 radio yesterday, where he discusses the rumored feud between himself and Kanye West, a video for the new track “Otis,” Watch The Throne and the upcoming tour.

“Kanye’s my brother… Yes, we get on each other’s nerves. We push each other to be greater. Of course, there are times when we’re in the studio and we’re yelling. I would never disrespect that man or put my hands on him.”

Jay-Z also talked about the album, his Maybach and President Obama. 

“I think this album is the perfect album at the perfect time. I keep in my Maybach Ace of Spades, Nerds candy, an Hermès throw blanket, a couple Yankees hats, and sunglasses. The President is like the second coolest person in the world [next to me].”
