Few people look at it this way, but Jay-Z is the most-influential rapper from the 1990s. He was one of many rappers who reached high levels of fortune and fame, during that era. Instead of simply relying on his music, Jay-Z relied on his ownership.
When most rappers were only making money, one way, through music, there was Jay-Z making money many ways. This led to him being one of the first rappers to cross $100 million, back in 2001. Over time, he built a huge profile, and connected himself with the world’s elite.
Jay-Z stopped by The New York Times, sitting down for the cover interview with Dean Baquet. The two talked about race, actually O.J., when referencing “The Story of O.J.,” along with the Kanye West tensions. Race also led to Jay speaking on being the only black man in the Nets’ boardroom, as he also spoke on being in therapy, Dave Chappelle, and much more.
