Jay Z on Vanity Fair Cover

Jay Z The New Chairman of the Board: From the Streets of Brooklyn to American Icon—His Most Revealing Interview Ever!

"Everyone's supposed to stay in their lines and be neat. You're a rapper. You're supposed to rap, carry a boombox, wear chains, and go to the club—that's all you do. What are you doing collecting art? What are you talking about? Wait a minute, you're getting out of the zone. People hate when people cross lines." ~ Jay Z

Well said, Mr. Carter. He definitely crossed the lines defined for a rapper. Forty-three-year-old Shawn "Jay Z" Carter has broadened his career and life in a positive way. From drug dealer to rapper to entrepreneur, mogul, club owner, sports agent, art collector, clothing and watch designer, part owner of a basketball team, husband, father and more. The list of Mr. Carter's achievements and titles go on and on. And this is why I stan for Jay Z. In the November issue of Vanity Fair, Lisa Robinson writes a detailed cover article giving insight to this fascinating man.

"I'm beyond certain that this is why he still does it—knowing somewhere in this world someone is staring at the speakers in analytical mode." ~ Roots drummer Questlove

  1. I don't usually use the word "stan" (it feels too extreme? serious? to me), but I am a huge fan of Jay Z's, too. Love him. Thank you for posting the link to the article.
