Jay Z was born in December 1969 as Shawn C Carter. He is famous for producing many hip hop albums that have sold out around the world, and he is said to be worth approximately $400 million. The rapper and entrepreneur received a number of Grammy awards for his great contribution to music and is ranked as one of the most talented rappers of all time.
The hip hop artist is the co-owner of the 40/40 club as well as the NBA's New Jersey Nets. The rapper has also produced a clothing line as well as serving as a co-brand director for Budweiser. He has consistently held the record for having four number 1 albums by an artist on the Billboard Hot 100. His album "The Blueprint" which is a trilogy of previous albums under the same title, was the center of controversy for including words that attacked other well known rappers such as Prodigy.
Nevertheless, this album managed to climb up to number two on the singles chart, which included the song "Bonnie and Clyde" that featured Beyonce Knowles, and the song "Excuse Me Miss" which featured Pharrell Williams. The "Black Album" was released in 2003 and was supposed to be his last album. It went triple platinum, and 3 years later, the rapper resumed his career by releasing another successful album called "Kingdom Come."
The popularity of this hip hop artist never waned as he continued releasing further albums in 2007 and 2009. He even surpassed Elvis for being the only singer with most records to have reached number one on the Billboard chart. According to figures, over 25 million units of his studio albums have been sold in the US alone.
On April 2008, Jay Z finally married his long time girlfriend, the R&B singer Beyonce. He was ranked as the fourth most successful rapper by Billboard in 2009 just behind 50 Cent and Eminem. In August 2011 at the MTV Music Awards, his wife announced that she is expecting their first baby.
