Rarely do we get to see Jay-Z do interviews, but Billboard caught up with the man at the NBA 2K13 launch event. He downplayed his “executive producer role” for the new 2K Sports title, “It was more like making a playlist than executive producing. But don’t tell ‘em that,” said Jay. “Executive producing an album, there was like 48 iterations of ‘G.O.O.D.,’ Kanye’s album, before we got to the ones that wound up on the actual album.”

Jay also spoke on what to expect from his upcoming 8-night Barclays Stadium. “I pretty much have sing-alongs at the concert and I want to encourage that even more,” he said. “It’s like a gift to Brooklyn to have this, to all us Brooklynites, to have this arena and this team. We just want to celebrate this team since it’s the first since the Dodgers.”

Watch the full interview above.
