Jay-z Tickets
Born Shawn Corey Carter on December 4, 1969, Jay-Z grew up in Brooklyn's drug-infested Marcy Projects. Considered one of the greatest, successful hip-hop artists of all time, he was one of four children to a single mother. During a rough adolescence, where Carter admitted to dealing drugs and flirting with gun violence, he attended Eli Whitney High School in Brooklyn, where he was a classmate of rap legend Notorious B.I.G. Carter turned to rap at a very young age as an escape from the drugs, violence, and poverty. In 1989, he joined the rapper Jaz-O, an older performer who served as a kind of mentor, to record a song called "The Originators." The song won the pair an appearance on an episode of Yo! MTV Raps. It was at this point that Shawn Carter embraced the nickname Jay-Z, which was in part an homage to Jaz-O, a play on Carter's childhood nickname of "Jazzy," and a reference to the J/Z subway station near his Brooklyn home. Jay-Z remained relatively anonymous until he and his friends, Damon Dash and Kareem Burke, founded their own record label, Roc-A-Fella Records, in 1996. That year, Jay-Z released his debut album, "Reasonable Doubt." Although the record only reached No. 23 on the Billboard charts, it is now considered a classic hip-hop album. It features the songs "Can't Knock the Hustle," featuring Mary J. Blige, and "Brooklyn's Finest," a collaboration with Notorious B.I.G. Reasonable Doubt established Jay-Z as an emerging star in hip-hop. He would go on to be a multi-platinum selling artist, as well as founding several successful business ventures including a clothing line, nightclubs, and he is part owner of the New Jersey Nets.
