Jay-Z was of the guests on LeBron James' The Shop: Uninterrupted, and he talked about his song "Smile" off the 4:44 album.
The song deals with his mother Gloria Carter being gay, a topic that she didn't want to be put out there at first.
“When she first heard that song she got super defensive," said Jay, who also revealed on the show that he once boycotted the Grammys because DMX wasn't nominated. “I was in L.A. and she flew out to L.A. and then she left and was like, ‘No’. We talked through it and then when she flew back to L.A. she had written a poem. She wrote that on the plane. It came with the American Airlines note pad … I was like, ‘You got bars, ma.'”
