Over The Hill

Say happy birthday to Jay Z who turns 40 this Friday! Can you believe the 20th century icon will be over the hill? As Jay Z grows older, he is still active in the hip-hop scene. Most recently you may have seen him perform "Empire State of Mind" with Alicia Keys at the American Music Awards, where he was honored as Favorite Male Rap/Hip Hop Artist.

If you're interested in learning more about Jay Z, not only do we have many recordings in our popular library, but we also have several items in the Music Section of the Arts and Humanities Division. Take a look at "Somebody Scream: Rap Music's rise to prominence in the aftershock of Black power" (782.4216 R332) to learn about Jay Z's contribution to the genre.
