Legendary rapper JAY Z recently made an appearance of BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge, performing songs of his 4:44 album.

He gave an interview to presenter Clara Amfo, where he talked about many corners of his life – including his motivations for still pushing his artistry and home life with Blue Ivy. 

He revealed that the depth of wisdom he had shown on 4:44, had always been present through his career, though it had never been that concentrated on a single project.

He also performed a couple of songs, including Encore  and Family Feud. He dedicated his performance of Encore to the late lead singer of Linkin Park, Chester Bennington.
