It looks like Jay Z is using his voice for a feature that doesn’t involve a rap track or a R&B song!
The music mogul has joined forces with The New York Times for a piece called “The War On Drugs;” a short visual film (illustrated by Molly Crabapple) that details America’s fight against drugs and the drug trade in this country.
Jay lends his voice as the narrator, detailing his life in the 80’s and how the war has effected many in the US, including him and many inner city kids like him. The point of the 4 minute film is to highlight the laws and acts of the government that were put in place to racially oppress and how they poured money into a system that was never going to win anyway.
