Jay-ZJay-Z did a little overseas press recently, addressing a few hot issues including rumors that he blocked Chris Brown from landing a Michael Jackson tribute and Game's recent disses.

In the interview, which will debut this weekend on Tim Westwood's BBC radio show, Jay denied rumors that he had Brown's scheduled Michael Jackson tribute at the BET Awards canceled.

"That's the silliest rumor I've ever heard," said the rapper/businessman. "First, let me categorically deny that. That's not even my style. If I got a problem with Chris Brown, I got a problem with Chris Brown. I haven't said anything -- I haven't said anything live, or behind the scenes. Whatever. I don't agree with what he did, and that's it."

"That's a sucker move, I wouldn't do it," Jay added.

The rapper did not have anything bad to say about Chris Brown as the interview continued in the short preview clip, saying "all of us are flawed human beings."

Westwood quickly moved on to other controversy, changing the topic to The Game, who Jay-Z mentioned in a freestyle during a recent show in Las Vegas, spawning numerous disses from the Compton rapper during his overseas tour.

Jay-Z pointed out that he spit the line: "I'm not talking about Game," asking how it could be a diss. Then, laughed it off before closing with "Tell groupie to get over it."

He also confirmed that the next single off his upcoming Blueprint 3 album would be "Run This Town," featuring Rihanna and Kanye West.
