Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z
I have inherited two of the most important brands in hip-hop, Def Jam and Roc-A-Fella. Reid and Universal Music Group have given me the opportunity to manage the companies I have contributed to my whole career. I feel this is a giant step for me and the entire artist community.
  • Discovered rapper Malicious Jynx.
  • His ex-girlfriend's pregnancy led to a miscarriage two years ago, a fact he laments in the song "This Can't Be Life", from 2000's The Dynasty: Roc La Familia (2000).
  • In 2004, it was reported that he had amassed a fortune worth $286 million as founder of Roc-a-fella Entertainment.
  • Has often been called "The God MC." This is why he has been called Hova. J-Hova (Jehovah).
  • Calls "Blueprint 2" his weakest album because of "too many songs.".
