Rags to Riches

Posted in Uncategorized at 5:56 pm by nicole

From rags to riches, Jay-Z has never neglected to speak out about where he’s come from. Brooklyn and the streets are always present in his songs as his shares his reincarnation through his rhymes. Jay-Z chronically takes us to the streets of Marcy Projects where he calls home. Before he made it big his early albums seem to speak directly to the community he occupied. Then, after his crossover success Jay-Z still speaks the streets but as an outsider connecting to the community in which he once physically lived in.
When it comes to authenticity I feel Jay exudes it. That’s one of the reasons I respect him most as an artist. He’s been at the bottom and made his way to the top. And I feel his hustler mentality defiantly contributed to his success. He’s established himself as a profitable artist, and business man. Jay-Z has managed to make a household name for himself, whether it be for his music, his clothing line or his many other business ventures. He may live a lavish lifestyle now but he’s maintained some of his hood mentality. He came from hustling on the streets to now hustling in the corporate world. His story is reflected in his music as he continues to reincarnate himself time and time again.
