Quicklet on the Best Jay-Z Songs: Lyrics and Analysis
For Shawn Carter, there is a no more fitting moniker than his self-given The Hustler. The artist known as Jay-Z released his first solo album in 1996, and proceeded to release a new one every single subsequent year until 2003; when he released The Black Album, his supposedly final record. However, three years later he was at it again.
To release eight albums in as many years takes a hustlers ambition indeed. That is why Jay-Z sits on the throne of today’s hip-hop world. He has worked hard to get there. He has done it all: hit songs, classic albums, clothing lines, fragrances, shoe deals, a book, nightclubs, champagne, and a cosmetics line.
