Kevin Hart is returning to Peacock for season two of Hart to Heart - and we can't wait. The unscripted series features Hart interviewing a whole lotta celebs while he asks the hard-hitting questions over a glass of vino. Lucky for us, he snagged a rare conversation with the one and only Hova, and we were able to get a little glimpse into what the two chatted about. Here's what to expect.

Taking place in Hart's infamous wine cellar, the upcoming season will see the comedian sit down with some pretty big names - including Hov. There is no topic left untouched for Hart as he sits down with celebrities, athletes, and public figures. Season one brought some of Hollywood's finest out, from Ice Cube to Miley Cyrus, Taraji P. Henson, and more - leaving season two even more stacked (if possible). In the second season of Hart to Heart, the host will sit down with several other stars from Chris Rock to Mark Wahlberg, and more.

A short promo clip of the host interviewing Jay-Z was recently dropped, to which Hart asked the rapper if he's retired. "Nah, I tried that," the rapper admits. The 99 Problems singer was referring to the time he announced that The Black Album would be his last in 2003 - only to come out of retirement a few years later. "I don't know what happens next," he said. "I'm not actively making music or making an album or have plans to make an album, but I never want to say that I'm retired. It's a gift, so who am I to shut it off? And it may have a different form or interpretation. Maybe it's not an album, maybe it is. I have no idea, but I'm just going to leave it open."

Although the artist assured he is not retired, he is also not sure what exactly his next steps in the industry will look like. Jay's last solo studio record, 4:44, marked his thirteenth studio album, which was released just over five years ago. And recently has entered the NFT world. But don't get me wrong, we would love nothing more than a surprise Hov track! Until then, stay tuned.
