Jay-Z

One of the biggest names in music, Jay-Z is a musical figurehead by any standards. Not only is he named as an inspiration bymany of the rappers who followed in his footsteps, but he has been named as the most financially successful entrepreneur inrap,with a net worth of $547,000,000.

One of the biggest names in music, Jay-Z is a musical figurehead by any standards. Not only is he named as an inspiration bymany of the rappers who followed in his footsteps, but he has been named as the most financially successful entrepreneur inrap,with a net worth of $547,000,000.

His first album came in 1996 with Reasonable Doubt. The album featured a high profile guest appearance by The NotoriousB.I.G., and is now considered a canonic classic within the genre. His subsequent four albums did not achieve the same level ofcritical respect and suffered diminishing commercial returns, but The Blueprint, released on September 11 2001, reinstated himas a major force. His romance with Beyonce Knowles,although rarely discussed by either party, has also ensured that Jayremains a tabloid mainstay.

In the 12 years since he debuted on a major label recording, Jay has ascended to a point where some now consider him thegreatest rapper of all time. Regardless of arguments over the quality of his music, he stands as a continuing testament to theglobal power wielded by the biggest stars in hip-hop, and a counter-argument to those who have claimed that there are nocareers in rap. « hide
