Mainly for his music, and sometimes for the fact that he’s married to the Queen B herself, Beyonce.
Born as Shawn Corey Carter in Brooklyn’s notorious Marcy Projects, Jay Z turned to rap as an escape from the ongoing drug and gang issues in his neighborhood.
They recorded the song, “The Originators”, which won the pair an appearance on an episode of Yo! MTV Raps.
For a couple of years, Jay Z remained relatively under the radar until he and two friends, Damon Dash and Kareem Burke, founded their own record label, Roc-a-Fella Records, in 1996.
Jay Z released his debut album, Reasonable Doubt, in June that year, which was followed by his 1998 album Vol. 2 … Hard Knock Life, which scored him a Grammy.
These include “Big Pimpin’,” “I Just Wanna Love U,” and “Izzo (H.O.V.A.)”.
Jay Z is also known for another thing – His relationship with pop sensation, Beyonce.
It is unsure of when exactly the couple met…
But, when Beyonce was still a part of Destiny’s Child, she collaborated with the rapper to produce the duet, “03 Bonnie and Clyde”, where the pair sang about their boyfriends and girlfriends.
And, when asked about their relationship in an interview, Jay Z famously said:
“She’s beautiful. Who wouldn’t wish she was their girlfriend? Maybe one day.”
Though the couple never officially confirmed their romance, they were spotted together several times at various social and red carpet events.
It was obvious.
And quietly tied the knot in New York in 2008, famously with no engagement or wedding rings.
On the topic, Beyonce once said in an interview, “people put too much emphasis on that. It’s just material, and it’s just silly to me”.
Jay Z and Bey have become one of the most iconic power couples in the world (cheating rumors aside…).
Blue Ivy Carter, aged 8, and twins, Rumi and Sir Carter, both 2-years-old.
But most frequently at the Los Angeles Lakers basketball games.
He is a huge Lakers fan.
And is regularly spotted courtside at their games.
Nothing out of the usual, I know.
And players were spotted greeting the rapper and shaking his hand prior to the game.
One fan decided to get a little too close for comfort.
And Jay Z instantly recoiling away, pulling a face of the utmost disgust and discomfort.
Where Jay Z can be seen chatting to and greeting players until a fan sneaks up behind him and puts his arm around his shoulders.
But suddenly recoils away from the stranger, with a look of disgust on his face.
But the fact of the matter remains – Don’t go touching people without their consent. Period.
Twitter users were horrified by the clip, with many condemning the actions of the unidentified fan.
I can’t bear to watch anymore.
Let’s just hope that this fan will realize the error of his ways, and stop hugging strangers. That is all.
