Do you really have President Obama on your text?

“Yes it has happened, and it is amazing. He’s a regular guy, he’s very into sports.”

Are there more kids in the future?

“Absolutely, god willing.”

Will you and Beyonce ever do a Best of Both Worlds album?

“No Way!”

Will there be a Watch the Throne 2?

“Hopefully yea,” explaining they haven’t begun recording for the album yet.

How do you feel about Damon Dash?

“The thing we built , you can’t take that away so no matter what, the love is still there. Because what we’ve done will forever be stamped in history. We created something that’s gonna go down forever. So I can only have love for Dame. I just don’t know where we are in our life, we’re not the same two men at that time when we gelled in that way.”

Do you feel bad it ended the way it did?

“I haven’t seen him in a while. I have ultimate confidence in him that he’ll find his way ’cause he’s an amazing and smart guy. He’s a hustler and he’s highly intelligent, so I always root for him and always believe that he’ll find his way out of it. But I can’t control what happens life.”
