It’s not unusual to see Gwyneth Paltrow throwing up the diamond at a “Watch the Throne” concert or sitting front row with Beyoncé at the Grammys. The Oscar-winning actress, who is BFFs with hip-hop’s royal couple and can recite the lyrics to N.W.A.’s “F**k tha Police,” shares her hip-hop-heavy playlist with Jay-Z’s Life+Times.
Some of her selections may surprise you. The hip-hop aficionado is “excited” about Kendrick Lamar’s debut, calls Frank Ocean’s channel ORANGE a “masterpiece,” and can’t wait for a clean version of Chief Keef’s “I Don’t Like,” so she can play it around her kids.
Find out what Gwyneth is bumping in her Beats.
