How Jay-Z Became The Blueprint For Hip-Hop Success


From selling over 125 million records to becoming hip-hop's first billionaire, 23-time GRAMMY winner JAY-Z has more than enough mind-boggling feats to fill up his episode of Black Sounds Beautiful.

Jay-Z earned his first Grammy nods in 1998. He took home his first win in 1999 for Vol. 2, scoring the Best Rap Album Grammy. Jay-Z developed a passion for writing music when he was a kid. He performed freestyle raps and sold CDs throughout the ’90s. In 1996, the artist produced his first album, Reasonable Doubt. But most know him for his breakthrough album: 1998’s Vol. 2… Hard Knock Life.

Before long, Jay-Z received much praise from critics. He’s released more than a dozen studio albums and often works with other famous artists, like West. See How Jay-Z Became The Blueprint below!
