It might not be his finest hour, but Ari Melber is chuffed with Jay-Z’s transformation into, well, a song – or a semblance of it.
The celebrated media personality had released a breakdown of Jay-Z’s verse in the song “God Did.” The dissection had pleased many, from LeBron James to Jay-Z himself, and Hov decided to transform it into something else, dubbed “HOV Did.”
Ari Melber was deeply honoured by the gestures, and he said so out loud. As a journalist, according to him, he gets to meet several artists and report on many subjects. But Jay-Z sharing his report in the form of a track is a first and “an honour.”
Driving deeper, he noted that Jay-Z sharing the segment for listeners is good for posterity. For one, it elevates the context. He further stated that Jay-Z sampled his voice and turned it into a hot song. As to whether Ari was using his voice right, the media personality wouldn’t be dragged into that.
