You know him by many names; Sean Carter, JayZ, Hova, and now by a book he released not long ago, Decoded. Now Jay-Z sits down to talk about why when he wears a Yankee cap, he can make it more popular than a Yankee can. Watch the video below:
The truth of what Jay-Z says, matched with his technical skills being honed every time he puts the pen to paper, is what makes him so influential. His “all black everything” clothing agenda set hip hop on fire in the “Run this town” video with Rihanna and Kanye. Jay-Z is a trendsetter along with many other things to his long list of credits, but one thing we can all agree (or disagree) on is the topic of best rapper alive: where does he live on your list?
Being from Marcy projects, Jigga had a lot of odds against him, but his technique and style never took a backseat to his ambition. This summer, Jay-Z and Kanye West have more heatrock in the form of Watch the Throne; definitely a blockbuster of an album that’s gonna be!
When it comes to style, Jay-Z definitely has a style of his own that still influences tons of new hip hop fans across the world, despite the new school influence from artists like Wiz Khalifa, Justin Bieber, or Drake. We at AMOG salute Jay-Z for his many contributions to Hip Hop!
