I LOVE JAYZ WITH PASSION HE IS THE MAN TO WATCH THIS YEAR? WHAT DO YOU THINK???
Claim to Fame: After releasing ten successful albums, Jay-Z announced his retirement from rapping (which he later reneged on) and traded in his jersey for a business suit as the newly-appointed president and CEO of Def Jam Recordings.
