Jack White is a big fan of Jay-Z
Jack White is in awe of Jay-Z.
The rocker - who has fronted The White Stripes, and founded bands The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather - believes he actually has more in common with the legendary hip-hop star than groups with a similar sound to his own music.
He said: "I feel like I'm a lot more to do with Jay-Z than I do with the Black Keys. And I don't know what that is, it's just a feeling.
"I love hip-hop if it's done with a sense of the blues, even if the person who is creating it isn't thinking that at all. I think Jay-Z is just incredible. 'The Black Album' is one of the best albums of the decade."
Jack is also jealous of the musical freedom the 'Empire State of Mind' hitmaker receives under the hip-hop genre.
He explained to RollingStone.com: "I think that what he's saying in his lyrics is honest. His ideas about metaphor are really reflective about what struggle is. He has a lot more room to work than I do. He can get away with a lot more than I can. And I'm envious of that because he can stretch into metaphors that I would love to do. You can get away with a lot of interesting stuff in hip-hop and he's really good at it."Posted on 8 Jan 2010 07:30 to category : Music News
