Jay-Z's episode of My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman is excellent and informative on multiple levels.
The artist talked about everything from his tumultuous relationship with his father, to how he started to sell crack at age 16, to when he first began rapping.
It was candid, emotional, and sometimes hilarious — like when he maybe kinda shaded a current late-night host.
He also addressed his falling out with Kanye West, how he views him as a little brother, and how he stood on a table during one of their recording sessions and shouted, "I am the savior of Chicago!"
He talked about his marriage, his infidelity, and going to therapy with his Beyoncé, his wife.
Letterman asked Jay-Z about his views on President Donald Trump, who Letterman referred to as a "dumbass." Jay-Z said he believes his presidency is actually "a great thing" that's forcing people to have "the tough conversation[s]" and will mobilize young people across the country to vote.
He also addressed his fear of becoming a father, and having a "low emotional IQ."
And he told the most adorable story about Blue, and the most beautiful thing she's ever said to him.
My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman is streaming on Netflix now.
