President Carter covers the October issue of UK publication Q Magazine. The issue highlights 10 of the most exciting figures in the music industry right now. Hova sounds off on his rap rivalry with Nasir, his relationship with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, his upbringing in Marcy Projects and the infamous Glastonbury ’08 performance.
Though they’re the best of buddies now, Jay revealed his teenage train of thought if he were to ever spot Chris Martin on the pavements of Mary Projects. Jay admits, “That’s a different scenario. He couldn’t walk through Marcy. I was a different person then. I wasn’t open to the world and to cultures. I would have been, ‘Yo! Who are you? Give me your money.’ You couldn’t have a guy like Chris walking through Marcy. He’d have to get robbed. At best.”
