Jay-Z blames Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain for temporary hip hop halt

Rapper Jay-Z has stated that he believes that Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain was the reason that hip hop temporarily stopped in the early 90s. Thanks to Nirvana, rock and grunge took over the music scene in the early 90s and Jay-Z puts a lot of that down to Cobain.
 
 
Jay-Z claimed, “Hair bands' dominated the airwaves and rock became more about looks than about actual substance and what it stood for - the rebellious spirit of youth. That's why 'Teen Spirit' rang so loud because it was right on point with how everyone felt.”
 
He added, “I have always been a person who was curious about the music and when those forces come on the scene, they are inescapable. Can't take your eyes off them, can't stop listening to them. [Cobain] was one of those figures. I knew we had to wait for a second before we became that dominant force in music.”
 
 
Jay-Z continued, “It was weird because hip-hop was becoming this force, then grunge music stopped it for one second, ya know. Those 'hair bands' were too easy for us to take out; when Kurt Cobain came with that statement it was like, 'We got to wait a while'.”
 
Jay-Z is has admitted that he will be releasing a new EP which is titled Live In Brooklyn.
