Real name Shawn Carter, is one of the greatest rapper that is still alive and his business acumen makes his story a successful and blueprint for others to follow. His first album "Reasonable Doubt" back in 1996 is a classic and is what sprung him to the limelight under his founder rocafeller records. His is one of the best career any artist could wish for as his records has being on the billboard for a period of twenty years with each release. Having recorded fourteen album with each topping the billboard, he is a force to reckon with.
His lyrics are one of the kind and stand as an educational point/story to the youth. Jigga, Hov as he is called most time was once a drug dealer but with the Music Industry he is now the first hip hop billionaire. I tease people that this is the only billionaire with dreadlocks. Hov has influenced a lot of artists who have gone to have incredible music careers. Let me mention a few, Kanye West, J Cole, Meek Mills, Rhianna, Rick Ross, Young Jeezy e.t.c.
- His is married to Beyonce - another music super star - and they are team a supercouple as paparazzi term to flock them wherever they go. Their relationship started with a music collaboration on the Bonnie and Clyde hit song. They got married in 2008 and nobody has being the wiser. They welcome a daughter Blue Ivy Carter back in 2011 then twins Rumi and Sir Carter in 2017.
