Jo Whiley of Radio 1 spoke with Jay-Z as the rapper was in London for the show on Wednesday. When asked what’s difference between rap and hip hop, Jay Z said, “Well, rap is more of a business and hip hop is more of an artistic expression. I think hip hop is the root of rap. It’s the foundation and sometimes they cross.” The 11+ minute audio clip and transcript has since been removed from bbc.co.uk.
