Jay-Z: I read everything.

Andy Warhol: There’s always another book.

Jay-Z: Well, if you find it for me, I can give you the context.

Warhol: I don't want to get involved. It's too much trouble.

Jay-Z: It’s the nation saying that.

Warhol: It’s all fantasy.

Jay-Z: I thought it was great.

Warhol: You know, you read about it for years. And actually it was great. It was really, really, really great.

Jay-Z: It’s, like, one of the best pieces in my house and I’m very attracted to it.

Warhol: What‘s it about?

Jay-Z: Not much.

Warhol: You could sleep with the publisher.

Jay-Z: I had this on yesterday and I thought it looked good, so I wore it again.

Warhol: You're stronger than me, and fitter and handsomer and younger, and you wear better clothes.

Jay-Z: That’s a different book.

Warhol: I had some leftover camouflage.

Jay-Z: I don’t look at it like that.

Warhol: A good display in a window.

Jay-Z: Martin Luther King, Maya Angelou, Gandhi.

Warhol: We’ll use the silk-screened ones.

Jay-Z: It could be spring; it could be winter.

Warhol: These kids are so intellectual.

Jay-Z: People see different things.

Warhol: I like this idea that you can say the opposite.

Jay-Z: Et cetera, et cetera.

Warhol: I don't know; they got so much press.

Jay-Z: Sometimes you’ve got to be careful what you ask for. You might get it.

Warhol: I always think it's gone but it isn't. They still have their hard-rock nights at the Ritz. Do you ever go there?

Jay-Z: Hopefully. I don’t know. I have no idea.

Warhol: Maybe.
