Jay-Z Covers Time Magazine's '100 Most Influential People In The World' Issue

 

Jay-Z is honored by Time magazine as he lands on the cover of their annual issue of The 100 Most Inlfuetial People In the World issue. The 42-year old rapper/business mogul continues to raise the bar by making one power move after the other.

 

Jay Z embodies so much of what makes New York New York. A kid from a tough neighborhood who grows up in public housing, overcomes lots of bad influences on the street, never lets go of his dream, makes it to the top — and then keeps going, pursuing new outlets for his creativity and ambition. When no one would sign him to a record contract, he created his own label and built a music empire — before going on to design clothing lines, open sports bars and, most recently, represent professional athletes. He’s an artist-entrepreneur who stands at the center of culture and commerce in 21st century America, and his influence stretches across races, religions and regions. He’s never forgotten his roots — “Empire State of Mind” was a love song to our city — and as a co-owner of the NBA Nets, he helped bring a major league sports team back to Brooklyn, not far from his old neighborhood. In nearly everything he’s tried, he’s found success. (He even put a ring on Beyoncé.) And in doing so, he’s proved that the American Dream is alive and well.

NYC On The Rise Artist Jon. O He's probably one of the 1st artist in a while that we've seen give the audience a piece of his soul. Crafting every song like a poem his music is a breath of fresh air, he will be captivating all the ladies that's for sure. Not only is he lyrically good but the quality of sound and production is great. He's been flooding the internet & clubs of New York with nothing but shows and work. I think we'll be seeing great things coming from Jon.O. New York City…See More
