Rev Run Explains How Beyonce Captured Jay-Z
"How does a woman maintain her power and capture Mr. 'Big Pimpin'," he asked, in an interview with Radio.com. "Beyoncé did it flawlessly."
Beyoncé and Jay-Z were married in 2008 in a private affair. The power couple, who topped Forbes' "Highest Paid Celebrity Couples" list in 2012, originally kept their relationship under wraps and away from the public eye.
The perennial bachelor image Jay-Z portrayed during his "Big Pimpin'" days was among the factors that piqued the public's interest in the couple. On the single, "Big Pimpin'," which was released in 2000, he rhymed about his longstanding love affair with his money, which no woman could come between.
To melt Jay's icy veneer, Run pointed to Beyoncé's inner fire. He explained how she was happy to see Jay-Z but always went "back to work" on herself.
"[Beyoncé] danced, sang, spoke–perfect steps, that's what Ruth did in the Bible," Rev Run continued, referencing a story from the Old Testament's Book of Ruth. more on this story
