When Jay Z Was Interviewed in Bed With Lesbian Pornstars (NSFW Video)

Posted by Nathan S. on 01/10/14 | Filed under Top Stories, Videos, NSFW, Jay Z

There was a time in America when the prospect of a black president was almost unthinkable, only nerds cared about the internet and one of the most popular rappers alive didn't think twice about doing an interview in bed with lesbian pornstars* actively engaged in peach-eating. That time wasn't that long ago, 1997 to be exact, but it might as well have been a millenium.

Let me rewind.  

Back when video was something you had to watch on "tape", 2 Live Crew godfather Luke Campbell had an "interview" show called "Luke's Freak Show" that only consisted of interviews in the sense that words were occasionall said in between some straight up porn-action. Guests included athletes from Ray Lewis to Vince Carter and, of course, rappers like Jay Z. (Pause to credit Consequence of Sound for the spot.) 

While hip-hop certainly has't changed in the sense that NSFW videos with strippers/pornstars/video vixens are absolutely everywhere, let's all acknowledge there's no way someone of Jay's stature does this today. You don't think the NFL and NBA would be all over any player who went on the 2014 version of "Luke's Freak Show?" Let's put aside the fact that Beyonce would murder him and as a father his views on misogny have changed; there's not a chance in hell Barclay's owner/friend of Warren Buffet Hova goes within 40 miles of something like this now.

It's a reminder not just of how much Jay Z has personally changed, but how much hip-hop and media has changed (with Jay the personal and corporate are almost unseperable). In '97 you could do a video like this and it'd stay relatively under-the-radar, but in 2014 it'd go viral and be the subject of everything from Fox News pieces to trending topics to 11 billion blog thinkpieces. Fuck, it happened almost 20 years ago and I'm writing about it now. 

Second, it's a reminder that corporate involvement in hip-hop really has changed things. A decade ago a rapper does this because it'd increase his cool factor and hopefully album sales. In 2014, you're not risking losing that Samsung deal for album sales you need Samsung for anyway. If Rick Ross got dropped from Mt. Dew for alluding to date rape, you think Budweiser would be cool with their business partner in bed with actively-engaged-in-their-craft pornstars? 

So see this video as a sign of the times, or just see it as a "sweet baby jesus there's video of Jay next to lesbian pornstars eating each other out", but either way, I guarantee you won't be able to stop yourself from seeing it. NSFW, obviously

* I'm using "pornstar" in the common sense of the term
