Jay-Z got real about everything from his marriage to Beyoncé to his mother's sexuality and his relationship with Kanye West in an interview with T Magazine.
Jay opened up about his infidelity, a personal topic he delved into on 4:44.
"The hardest thing is seeing pain on someone’s face that you caused, and then have to deal with yourself," he said during the interview with New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet.
Between 4:44 and Beyonce's Lemonade, "we were using our art almost like a therapy session," he said, revealing he was "really proud of the music she made, and she was really proud of the art I released."
Jay confirmed that he and Bey worked on a joint album together around the time Lemonade dropped and that they "still have a lot of that music" that is unreleased.
He also spoke of weathering storms in their relationship. "You know, most people walk away, and like divorce rate is like 50 percent or something ’cause most people can’t see themselves," he said.
