Jay-Z reveals he never charges for collaborations but super selective with artistes

Regarding features, JAY-Z has no associated cost.

The rap legend talked openly about his selection process for collaborations during his interview with Kevin Hart for Season 2 of Peacock’s “Hart to Heart.” Not unexpectedly, he admits that he is frequently the one to be asked to work together and that “mainly relationships” are the basis of his decisions.

“Pretty much every song that I’m on, I’m asked to be on. I don’t ask people to be on their songs,” said Hov.

And if you’re one of the lucky few to get a JAY-Z feature, it won’t cost you anything. “I never charge,” he stated.

However, he acknowledges that the likelihood of him accepting is remote. The multibillionaire businessman, who last year worked with Pusha T on “Neck & Wrist,” claimed that there were “far more no’s than yes’s.”

But if it’s a no, he won’t waste your time. “I try to be straight up. Sometimes it slips through the cracks. Sometimes I want to do it and my life is in a certain place and I’m movin’ and I can’t do it,” he said. “But I typically try to be straight up with people. I don’t like to drag or like waste people’s time or hold them.”

The father of three spoke candidly during the conversation about how becoming a father has affected the way he focuses his time.

“You’re reckless with your time before,” he said while revealing that he tries to be home as much as possible. “Every second that you spend, you’re spending away from the development of these people that you brought here that you love more than anything in the world.”

Elsewhere, he reflected on his short-lived retirement and how he never plans to quit rap again.

“I tried that, I’m terrible at that,” he said before revealing that he is not currently working on music. “I don’t know what happens next. I’m not actively making music or making an album or have plans to make an album, but I never want to say I’m retired.”
