Jay-Z to Share Forbes Cover With Warren Buffett

September 23, 2010

It’s funny, this morning I decided to listen to the original version of Jay’s Vol.3 album. Lyrically Jay was on the ball for that album. However you could see that he was trying to replicate the success he just got for doing Vol.2. But honestly who could blame him? If you just sold 5 million records you would try to do it again too wouldn’t you? Hell Michael Jackson was chasing Thriller until the day died. However it’s seems like Jay has found a happy medium since then. He’s started a new label with mega promoters Live Nation and just played a mega concert at Yankee Stadium sharing the spotlight with none other than Eminem. The boy is doing alright.

I’ve been a Jay fan since his days of rapping with Original Flavor. I had a Jay-Z postcard of the feeling it single taped to my bedroom wall when I was a teenager. I was putting my classmates on to him when the maxi single for Dead Presidents dropped. To see this man from Marcy projects finally on the cover of a prominent magazine he used to rhyme about makes me smile. Score another one for Brooklyn.
