Today rapper Jay-Z celebrates his 41st birthday. The Brooklyn-born emcee worked his way up from street hustler to one of the most respected people in entertainment. We’ve loved watching Jay-Z evolve from rapper to mogul, and even distance himself from his past misogynistic lyrics. His marriage to Beyonce is a constant reminder of the beauty of Black love. Join us in wishing Jay a happy 41st birthday.
