CBS News is giving viewers a deeper dive into Jay-Z‘s life, career and successes with none other than the rapper himself in an exclusive interview with TV personality Gayle King. The primetime special will take place on Tuesday (Nov. 14) at 9 p.m. ET on CBS News and Paramount+, and will feature never-before-seen footage from their three-hour interview — parts of which previously aired on CBS Mornings — which took place in the Brooklyn Public Library where an exhibit of Jay-Z lives.
