Jay-Zby Dennis Abrams, Chuck D (Introduction)
Born Shawn Carter in New York City in 1970, Jay-Z enjoys the kind of rags-to-riches success that most people only dream of. Driven by raw ambition and tremendous talent, Jay-Z started his own record company, Roc-A-Fella Records, in 1995 when, as a struggling artist, he couldn't convince any music labels to give him a recording contract. On the strength of seven consecutive best-selling albums, Jay-Z quickly established himself and Roc-A-Fella as powerful forces in the music industry. Today he is a Grammy Award winner, the president and CEO of Def Jam Records, and a multimillionaire.
