Again, is Jay-z that charismatic? Don’t know anything about Jack White except he was in that mostly terrible vignettes film that Jarmusch did, so I will not go out on a limb here and assume he regrets saying what he said about the lack of creativity and emotion in hip-hop. I’m not even sure if they are officially collabo’ing or not but if they are, he might have some esplayning to do. Oh yeah, another thing about Jack White I know, I tried listening to his music once. Once.

RS: You’re not a hip-hop fan.

JW: Not particularly. I find OutKast and Wu-Tang Clan interesting. But I consider music to be storytelling, melody and rhythm. A lot of hip-hop has broken music down. There are no instruments and no songwriting. So you’re left with just storytelling and rhythm. And the storytelling can be so braggadocious, you’re just left with rhythm. I don’t find much emotion in that.

I already regret writing this. Link
