Jay-Z turns 43 today and in appreciation of one of the greatest rappers of all time, we take a look at 20 of his best tracks
In a career that spans two decades, eleven solo studio albums, a number of chart hits, and years of financial success, Jay-Z is definitely one of the greatest of all time. He now co-owns a NBA team in his native Brooklyn, he has altered the hip hop landscape numerous times, and as other artists have faded away, he has consistently been relevant, both culturally and musically. He has been critiqued as being too business-like and has responded with successful album after album, which made this list even harder to choose. On Hova's 43rd birthday we've broken down twenty of his top track - though in fairness that still doesn't pay proper tribute to the Jigga Man.
