JAY-Z is a major figure in hip-hop and for the city of New York. His career began during The Notorious B.I.G. era. His Brooklyn upbringing created the foundation for his New York hip-hop roots. JAY-Z’s debut album ‘Reasonable Doubt’ dropped in 1996. After beginning his career unsigned, JAY-Z co-founded Roc-A-Fella Records, an independent label, in the mid-‘90s. This was just the first major example of his entrepreneurial spirit and motivation. After gaining momentum with his second album ‘In My Lifetime, Vol. 1,’ JAY-Z’s career began to take off. His albums leading into the new millennium, ‘Vol. 2… Hard Knock Life’ and ‘Vol. 3… Life and Times of S. Carter’ were both major records for the young hip-hop star. “Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem)” is one of the biggest hits of his career off of ‘Vol. 2.’ Hours before the terrorist attacks on September 11th, JAY-Z released ‘The Blueprint’ featuring production by Kanye West. This was the birth of another soon-to-be legend in hip-hop. JAY-Z has consistently released music throughout his career. Hit such as “99 Problems,” “N***** In Paris,” and “Holy Grail” are hits from the 21st century catalog of JAY-Z. Four years after ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail,’ JAY-Z released ‘4:44.’ A lot has happened since JAY-Z’s rough beginnings. He married Beyoncé and had children before being dragged through a cheating scandal. ‘4:44’ shows a more reflective and mature side of the rapper. Two decades later, fans can track the development of his music and his inner self. Get JAY-Z tickets to hear HOV on his ‘4:44 Tour’ this fall!
