In “The Truth” interview, Jay-Z discusses the new generation of the rap game. He expresses that the younger guys should compete with his legacy just like he feels like he is competing with the rappers who came before him.
When asked if Drake was his biggest competition as far as the new school is concerned, Jay stated that he definitely is the one who has reared his head as the competition and added that “he’s Kobe Bryant.”
I’m completely assuming that if Jay-Z feels that Drake is Kobe Bryant, then he must view himself as Michael Jordan. Let us know how you feel about the comparison! The statement can be seen at the 2:40 mark.
