JAY-Z Tells Kevin Hart He Doesn't Accept Money For Features: "I Never Charge"
When it comes to giving features, JAY-Z is a pretty generous guy (to those in his good book, that is).
During a sit-down with Kevin Hart for the comedian’s Peacock series, Hart to Heart, the father of three spilled the tea on how much it costs to get a feature from him, what attracts him to working with certain artists over others, and his future plans – including the possibility of retirement.

“Mostly relationships,” JAY-Z explained of how he picks and chooses his collaborations. “It’s actually always been mostly relationships, sometimes it’s talent.”
He continued, “Pretty much every song that I’m on, I’m asked to be on. I don’t ask people to be on their songs.” The New York native then added that he won’t accept money in exchange for verses. “I never charge,” he confirmed.
