Jigga Man, ya heard

Here's a moderately interesting interview with the Jigga Man in Time Out New York. In the aforementioned interview, we learn Jay likes Bellinis, still won't talk about his wife and calls the "emergence" of hip hop as the biggest cultural influence on NY in the past 13 years.

Not to be a second-guesser here, but I'd probably go with 9-11. But that's just me.

Anyway, Jay-Z was one of 40 people chosen by the magazine to celebrate the - I believe - 40th anniversary of the flagship publication's availability in London. Convoluted, I know.

But Time Out was able to interview disgraced former New York governor Eliot Spitzer, his first Q&A with media since the summer scandal that forced him out of office. He doesn't really get into anything that we'd actually want to know about.

There's some other interesting people on the list - Tina Fey, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Stephen Colbert - but little in the way of revelations. Still, check it out.

Hip Hop will have a longer lasting effect on CULTURE in America than 9/11.

I'm open to a debate on that one. People live hip hop daily and we came together as a nation over 9/11for 5 years.
