When it comes to writing about one of the rappers who went from rags to riches. The hip hop fans can not afford to not to mention Jay-Z. He was growing up in the projects of Marcy, Brooklyn and became a hip hop mogul. Jay-Z was selling drugs and dreaming about a hip hop career. He is one of the most successful rappers of now.
He is not only a rapper, but also a great entrepreneurial master mind. He started the hip hop record label Roc-a-Fella records with his childhood friends Damon Dash and Kareem 'Biggs' Burke . He dropped some hip hop classics and his latest album was 'The American Gangster'. I think he is one of the greatest examples of rags to riches stories of nowadays. People in France call it Nouveau Riche. This means the new riches. He was also the president of the major hip hop record label Def Jam.
