There are some stories you stumble upon and just think, “Yes, this is an appropriate closer to the week. This is the perfect, seamless segue into the weekend.” This is one such story: Gawker has a NSFW video from 1997 of Jay Z being interviewed next to a pair of women who are quite clearly going to town on each other. It’s kind of weird to watch and I’m confused.
“Distract your subject with hardcore lesbian sex happening right next to him” doesn’t seem like a viable interview strategy, but then 2 Live Crew mastermind Luther Campbell is no ordinary interviewer. The, uh, chat above happened in 1997, around the time of the release of Jay’s second album, In My Lifetime, Vol. 1. The rapper/mogul pair attempt to discuss Jay Z’s music, but that proves impossible, which is the point, I guess? If everyone had two women hooking up next to them, no one would get any work done.
Yup, that’ll do. Happy weekend, everyone!
