    Last week at the Barclays center, Jay-Z was seen rocking large gold pendant that serves as a symbolic representation of the Five Percent Nation affiliation.

The author of two books on the group, Michael Muhammad Knight explains, “The rationale is that the black man is God and created the universe, and is physically stronger and intellectually stronger and more righteous naturally. Whiteness is weak and wicked and inferior — basically just an errant child who needs to be corrected.”

The latter half of the interview dropped today, and in it Drizzy discusses in more detail three particular records off his new album. Drake even gets his not-often-heard producer, Noah '40' Shebib, to come out to say hi and talk about what it's like to work with the rapper.

    50 Cent is no stranger to beef, so it's no surprise he has a few opinions concerning the recent back-and-forth between Drake and Jay Z.

He also addressed a few other topics, including the current status of his relationship with Nas, as well as the rumor that G-Unit will be reuniting at 50's Summer Jam performance this June. Read some excerpts from the sit-down below.
