Prior to premiering the video for “Picasso Baby,” JAY Z appeared on HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher to discuss a variety of topics ranging from music, the mogul’s disagreement with Harry Belafonte, stop and frisk, politics, and more.

“I don’t really want to scare America, but the real problem is there’s no middle class. So the gap between the haves and have nots is getting wider and wider,” JAY explained. “It’s gonna be a problem that no amount of police can solve, because once you have that sort of oppression and that gap is widened, it’s inevitable that something’s going to happen.”

It’s nice to see Jay-Z using his power to address important issues affecting the lower classes. We were getting a little worried about whether or not Jay still cared. Thank Jay. We look forward to seeing more of your political side and community engagement.
