The show airs live at 10 p.m. Friday on HBO and repeats immediately at 11.
In a recent interview with hip-hop journalist Elliott Wilson, Jay Z complained about Zimmerman. "This guy's not a professional," the rapper said. "You're not a professional to profile someone. A professional law enforcement officer is taught not to profile. This guy's a novice. This guy's a [expletive] mall cop."
Jay Z also lambasted Florida's stand your ground laws, but said of the slain Trayvon Martin: "His memory will live on... hopefully this is the moment that changed that [stand your ground] law, that changed the way we interact with each other."
Jay Z also can explain what happened to the hypen in Jay-Z. The Daily Beast is spotlighting the hyphen issue.
Mr. Z will be the mid-show interview guest. Right after "Real Time," Jay Z will present the world premiere of "Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film" exclusively on HBO.
The top-of-the-show interview guest will be actor Larry Miller.
