Happy 49th birthday to the G.O.A.T.
Nah, nah, nah. We can argue his status on the list another day.
In my opinion, he is the G.O.A.T. So let it be for now.
Prior to his latest solo venture, 4:44, this photo was taken and folks all over tried to list Shawn Carter’s albums from best to worst.
Needless to say, this was a great conversation that lasted for a few days.
And let’s not even try to list Hov’s best songs. So many to choose from.
But even more than the music, Jay has become an icon.
Not a music icon, but an icon to be researched and appreciated in the story of America.
Single parent home in the projects. Hustler. Rapper. Poet. CEO. Activist. And he’s got the hottest chick in the game wearing his chai,err, ring.
Even folks who are not fans of his music can admit that Hov has pushed the culture forward. NBA owner status, Tidal, liquor companies, foundations, and the list goes on.
So big salute to Shawn Carter on his 49th birthday.
Hip hop owes you as much as you owe hip hop.
