(The Root) — When Vibe announced that Jay-Z would be answering questions on Twitter on Monday, black Twitter nearly collapsed under its own weight.

It’s a big deal because the music mogul rarely tweets; he’s pretty much averaged one tweet per month this year, with the exception of June, when he hit the “tweet” button a whopping six times (he even joked about his rare tweet spree). Celebrity Twitter accounts help us piece together the person behind all the glitz and glamour, giving us a bit of humanity with the celebrity. Jay-Z’s radio silence has made him somewhat of an enigma.

So the Internet jumped at the chance to ask some questions and clear some of the mystery shrouding the man behind the music. Most questions were about his latest album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, and some were decidedly random. It was fun seeing which tweets he decided to respond. Here are some of the best questions and answers from the session so far.
