Trevor Noah Explains How He Got Featured On Jay Z’s New Album!

Trevor Noah Jayz Album

The Born A Crime Author , Trevor Noah, has been speaking on racism for a very long time and when you listen to Jay Z’s 4:44 album you understand why he would get the call.

Speaking to The Drive With Mo Flava & Masechaba Ndlovu, Trevor opened up about his excitement at featuring in Jay Z’s documentary with other international stars.

“It was one of those things that came out of nowhere. I just got a phone call and its someone saying ‘hey listen Jay Z wants you to…’ (and you just say) Yes!” he said.

Jay Z recently dropped his latest album 4:44, with which he released a short documentary called Footnotes: The Story Of OJ. It features black men telling stories of their experiences as a black man in the States.

“Imagine you go from a world where you were just listening to Jay Z and then Jay Z asks you to be on his album…like Jay Z is saying to you, can you be part of this story that I am trying to tell on this album. So I jumped on it of course, then on top of that I watched the video and there’s Will Smith, Chris Rock. I can’t even believe I am in the same picture as these people, I don’t take it for granted,” he said.

We can’t wait to watch the video!!!
