First and foremost I’m a mahooooosive Jay-Z fan!!! I’ve been to see him on soooo many occasions and have every album, including the unreleased bits and bobs: dvds, books, et-cet-er-fucking-raaaaah!!! Yeaaaa I love things like this because to have a pin hole insight into mind of your role models mind is something special because it reminds you that the person is just like you, well not exactly but a human being all the same. Here’s a spiel about the mini doc:
