Jay Z Covers the November Issue of Vanity Fair
Jay Z definitely shows out for the November cover of Vanity Fair as he shows off his style skills on the front cover and also inside the magazine. Aside from great fashion, Jay Z discusses what dealing crack has taught him and he also talks about Blue Ivy wanting to hear Magna Carta Holy Grail.
My album came out and I don’t know if Blue ever heard any of my music prior to this album—she’s only 18 months old and I don’t play my music around the house. But this album was new, so we played it. And she loves all the songs. She plays a song and she goes, ‘More, Daddy, more . . . Daddy song.

On Beyonce being gangsta:
Jay says that when he and Beyoncé were both featured on the cover of Vanity Fair’s 2001 Music Issue “we were just beginning to try to date each other.” Try? “Well, you know, you’ve got to try first. You got to dazzle . . . wine and dine.” He tells [writer] Robinson that “of course” he pursued Beyoncé, and when asked if he hadn’t been Jay Z—say, he had been a gas-station attendant and she pulled up—would he have been able to date her, he responds, “If I’m as cool as I am, yes. But she’s a charming Southern girl, you know, she’s not impressed. . . . But I would have definitely had to be this cool.” Jay confirms that the line on his latest album, “She was a good girl ’til she knew me” is about Beyoncé, and when Robinson asks if she’s not a good girl anymore, Jay laughs, saying, “Nah. She’s gangsta now.
On whether he’ll retire from rapping:
I know I said I wouldn’t be doing it when I was 30 so that’s how I know I love it. Thirty years old was my cutoff, but I’m still here, 43 years old.
