ABSTRACT
This article presents information about Jay-Z, rap singer, businessman, and New Yorker. Jay-Z was born in the Bedford-Stuyvesant housing project in the Brooklyn section of New York City and was a drug dealer before becoming a legitimate entertainer and businessman. Fans still admire Jay-Z because he has retained his thug persona and doesn't appear to have sold out to the establishment.
