Jay-Z Explains Why He Believes The Trump Presidency Is "Actually A Great Thing"

You can now watch the full 'My Guest Needs No Introduction' interview with Hov.

(AllHipHop News) Jay-Z has not been shy about sharing his views on Donald Trump. The Hip Hop icon spoke about the president with CNN contributor Van Jones in January, and his description of Trump as a "superbug" led to a Twitter response from the POTUS.

On the latest episode of Netflix's My Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, Jay once again addressed the current person in the White House. The 21-time Grammy winner told Letterman, "I think it’s actually a great thing."

Hov continued, "What he's forcing people to do is have a conversation and people to band together and work together. You can’t really address something that’s not revealed. He’s bringing out an ugly side of America that we wanted to believe was gone, and it’s still here and we still gotta deal with it. We have to have the tough conversation. We have to talk about the N-word. We have to talk about why white men are so privileged in this country."

The Jay-Z episode of My Guest Needs No Introduction is now streaming on Netflix.
