How I Got My Nickname, ‘One-Take Hov’- Jay Z

During his appearance on CBS Mornings with Gayle King, Jay-Z divulged the origin of his moniker, ‘One-Take Hov’.
The interview also featured a tour of the “Book of HOV” exhibit at the Brooklyn Public Library, which pays tribute to the rapper’s legacy.

“This was when you were recording to actual tape. So, you can’t mess up, ‘cause then you got to go all the way back and cut the tape,” Jay explained as the pair stroll by a display of his master tapes. “That’s where the whole ‘One-Take HOV’ came from. Because if you wanted a fly chorus on this thing, you had to go to dinner. It took an engineer hours to cut the tape… fly it over here… So I start learning my lyrics really good so I could do them one time—you understand—straight down, and I didn’t waste time.”

Like, take the $500,000, go buy some albums, and listen to the albums,” he continued. “It’s all there. If you piece it together and really listen to the music for the words, well, what it is, it’s all there.”

The upcoming two-part event will showcase an exclusive tour of the library’s esteemed “Book of HOV” exhibition, a remarkable homage to Jay’s extensive accomplishments. This exhibition encompasses his illustrious Grammy-winning repertoire, and groundbreaking ventures in sports, music, alcohol, film, and public service.

“But there was a time where she was like, ‘Daaaad,’” he adde

d, doing an impression of Blue’s voice while covering his face in mock embarrassment. “I’m like, ‘I’m cool. I don’t know what you sayin. At your house, your parents is cool.”
