Black rapper, real name Shawn Carter, got his name from his youth in Brooklyn where he was know as "Jazzy." He formed Roc-a-fella records along with Damon Dash and Kareem Burke and debuted in 1996 with his first album, Reasonable Doubt. He dominated the New York rap scene through the late 90's and early 2000's until he made his final album in 2003, called the Black Album. Now retired, he has his own clothing line (RocaWear) and is part owner of the New Jersey Nets.

Blasee"YAWN" Unoriginal,contrived,over-sampled or"stolen. "Actually go back before Biggie or Nas to EPMD and the father, Rakim to when there was actually a DJ with talent, to find this sound." Money he Got all good.
But get him off my t.v. and papers.
Donald trump and David Gates have Mad money and I love them. They earned it through being innovative. This cat should be out in the subways with a hat and a harmonica.
Damn your shit sounds Jay-Z

Decent rapper. Very overrated by the media. Made two great albums (Reasonable Doubt and the Black Album, and no, I don't consider Blueprint a great album, due to the fact that more than 2/3rds of the lyrics aren't even his), but aside from that, can't see why anybody would put him above Nas, Big L, Rakim, Big Pun, GZA, ect. Also got wrecked by Nas. Anyone who says otherwise is deluding themselves, even Jay-Z admitted he got ate.
Eh. Jay-Z is okay.

Sean Carter other wise known as Jay-Z,Hova,young hova,Jay-hova,S.Carter or Jigga is one of the most brilliant rappers in the history of hip hop. His endless flow, deep lyrics, and ofcourse his brillance sets him apart from the commercial and overated mainstream hip hop artists today. To me, and to many, Jay-Z's lyrics are couragess and some are just down right touching. He tells his story on a level of brilliance and meaningfullness that surpasses the crap and stupid shit people are now calling hip hop. Some people don't know what he is talking about or dont understand his lyrics but that is clearly a case of ignorance or those kinds of people just need to really listen to his lyrics although it is understandable that poeple could be baffled by his greatness and the heavyness of his words. Despite all of this, Jay-Z has maintainded a small head which he carries quite well on his shoulders. He is the current president and CEO of Def Jam and Roc-A-Fella Records. If anyone in this fucked up world has any sense he will go down in history as one of the greatist rappers that has ever walked the face of this earth.
I love Izzo,Regrets,Renegade featuring Eninem,and 99 problems. The Grey Album shows off Jay-Z's creativity and the layering of music is crazy.
