On having Barack Obama "on the text"
"Yeah, I've spoken to him on the phone and had texts… Yes, that's happened and it's amazing. He's a regular guy as well. He's very heavy into sports so a lot of his analogies end in sports… I don't know if this is reaching National Security, but when he was getting elected the second time, he was like, 'Fourth quarter, just gimme the ball.'"
On Beyonce's Life Is But A Dream HBO documentary
"It gave me a little anxiety, but it's something that she had to do, she wanted to do… You feel weird just putting yourself out there in that sort of way, especially when you reveal so much in your music. It's like, any more? I'm naked out here."
On whether he'll have more kids
"Absolutely. God willing… A little basketball team."
On whether there will be a Watch The Throne 2
On his relationship with 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. 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 in life."
On Blue Ivy
"She's very musically inclined. Amazing rhythm. She's around music all the time."
