South African comedian Trevor Noah is set to feature on a short documentary rapper Jay Z has put together for his 4:44 album. Noah joins stars such as Will Smith and Chris Rock who will also feature on the short documentary about black men sharing their experiences of racism in the United States.
Trevor Noah shared his exciting news with The Drive With Mo Flava and Masechaba Ndlovu on Metro FM and said the whole experience was surreal for him.
“Imagine you go from a world where you were just listening to Jay Z and then Jay Z asks you to be on his album…like Jay Z is saying to you, can you be part of this story that I am trying to tell on this album. So I jumped on it of course, then on top of that I watched the video and there’s Will Smith, Chris Rock. I can’t even believe I am in the same picture as these people, I don’t take it for granted,” he said.
The documentary is called Footnotes: The Story Of OJ and is available exclusively to subscribers of Jay-Z’s online streaming service Tidal.
