The big homie Jay-Z is on the October issue of Q magazine. There are actually two covers for the October issue. Jay has a cover by himself, and he shared the other cover with Lady Gaga and Dave Grohl.
In the cover story, he’s asked about his relationship with his big brother Eric of “You Must Love Me” fame:
“How come I had a gun at age 12?” he says. “That’s the life in Marcy. I was an angry and confused kid trying to work my situation out. I would never do that now. I’m a different person. And Eric and I are good now. He was doing buttons on my suit when I got married.”-Jay-Z

How the world’s greatest rapper became its best rock star too. With help from Noel Gallagher. Jay Z is raps’ top mogul and has topped this years Forbes hip hop rich list having earned $63 million this year. This month he talks about growing up in the projects, wearing a bullet-proof vest and rap rivalry with Nas. A lot of things have changed now, he can call Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow close friends and has produced tracks with Jack White (will we ever hear them?). Jay Z also talks about festival performances, of Glastonbury ’08 being reminiscent of “a shanty town, not built on poverty and struggle. Built on music”.
