Peep Who Jay-Z Thinks Is A Modern Day Shakespeare!


(AllHipHop Rumors) Since Jay-Z was inducted into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame, and since he released his ‘4:44’ album, he has actually taken time out to shine a light on some of the other artists and individuals he thinks highly of. One artist in particular was Coldplay’s Chris Martin.

In an interview with Metro News, Jay credited frequent collaborator Chris Martin with being a modern day Shakespeare.

“I have been in the industry long enough to know when I’m in the presence of a genius… and Chris Martin is just that. In years to come, Britain will look back at him as a modern day Shakespeare. He is an incredible recording artist, an incredible songwriter, but where he really comes alive is performing live. If you get the chance to see Coldplay live, do it — you ain’t gonna regret it,” said Jay-Z

Remember Jay-Z and Martin have collaborated frequently, known each other forever, and Beyonce and Jay-Z’s daughter, Blue Ivy, was even featured on Coldplay’s album, ‘A Head Full of Dreams’.

Despite the close relationship, Jay maintains that what he’s saying about Martin goes beyond their friendship!

Do you agree with Jay’s words on Chris?
