JAY Z: MU­SIC IS MY THER­APY

Sunday Sport - - LINSEY'S WORLD -

RAPPER Jay-Z says he uses his mu­sic as “ther­apy ses­sions”. The Em­pire State Of Mind singer doesn’t like to talk about how he feels with other peo­ple. But he reck­ons when he gets into the stu­dio, he lets it all come out in his songs.

Jay Z, 40, said: “It’s re­ally like ther­apy ses­sions. That’s why I do it in the stu­dio. I’m not a per­son who will sit and talk about my feel­ings.

“But the mu­sic just pulls it out, and it’s like, ‘Man, I can’t be­lieve I held that in for 12 years!’

“My life af­ter child­hood has two main sto­ries: the story of the hus­tler and the story of the rapper.

“I was on the streets from the time I was 13. I learned about in­tegrity, about the im­por­tance of be­ing a man of your word. These are things that ap­ply in

busi­ness to­day.”
