There are reasons no other rappers have been able to do what Jay-Z makes look easy. When other rappers faced pressure, they fell in the major pitfalls. Meanwhile, Jay-Z managed to sidestep those issues by aligning himself with popular and powerful people.
Marrying Beyonce was one of his smartest business decisions, giving him an outlet in music, outside of Roc-A-Fella Records. Eventually, this led to him leaving Def Jam and creating Roc Nation. Now, his company manages sports, does streaming with TIDAL, and handles touring.
Jay-Z is on the brink of becoming hip hop’s first billionaire and it didn’t come easy. Today, Jay turned 49 years old, and he remains one of the most-popular rappers in the game. His streaming service, TIDAL, is celebrating his life and career, with a video stream of Jay-Z’s biggest career moments.
