Music mogul Shaw “Corey” Carter also known by his stage name Jay-Z covers the latest issue of London’s based publication New Music Express. Inside, the magazine talks to people from Jay-Z’s crew that contributed to his latest offering, Magna Carta Holy Grail. Below is an excerpt from REM’s Michael Stipe (Jay-Z used his lyrics on MCHG).

Michael Stipe of REM has told NME that he is “thrilled” that Jay-Z chose to include lyrics by his band on his latest album ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’. Speaking to NME as part of this week’s cover feature on the US rapper, Stipe discussed his relationship with Jay-Z and his reaction to words from his song ‘Losing My Religion’ appearing on his new song ‘Heaven’. “I’ve known Jay for a long time, he’s super cool, super grounded, super smart and super talented,” says Stipe in the magazine, available digitally and on newsstands from today (July 17). “I’ve always had the deepest respect for him, and his music and choices. We’re thrilled (for our lyrics) to be included, it’s a really great honour.” Other artists and music industry insiders interviewed as part of this week’s cover feature include Tinie Tempah, Rita Ora and Wiley.”
