Happy Birthday, J-Hova!

Shawn Carter was born December 4th/weighing in at 10 pounds 8 ounces. He was the last of my 4 children/The only one who didn’t give me any pain when i gave birth to him/And that’s how i knew that he was a special child

Miss. Gloria was dead on. I don’t know how many years it has been that I have held high loyalty to Jigga man, but it will not go away. People confuse my birthday for Jay’s (I dead used to ask my mom why she didn’t have me earlier) because my appreciation is that real. I thank you, Jay. You have always had a flow that was interesting to listen to and easy to recite that I can answer all to life with lyrics from your records. The power and creativity to make me feel like I was the one on corners late night hustling with ashy knuckles remains the reason I stay loyal to your craft. Folding the street mentality smoothly into the corporate world is inspiring and you have done this so well. From Roc-A-Fella to Roc Nation, from Obama on the text to Brooklyn Nets at Barclay’s, thank you for being an idol for so many and having a talent your fans will forever appreciate. It’s your 43rd year and I’m sure you are mighty thankful for what this year has brought you. God bless you, Bey, and Blue Ivy.

 We loooove you, Jigga.

Video: Jay-Z Running all Towns

Two days ago, seeing the Made in America teaser had me… inquisitive. Not knowing if it was a music video for the record filmed through a kaleidoscope or a documentary, the Hova gawd spilled the beans by announcing the two-day Budweiser Made in America Music Festival. Jay stood side by side with the mayor of Philidelphia, Michael A. Nutter at a press conference mentioning the event is set for September 1st and 2nd, filled with 28 acts from hip-hop to jazz, and a portion of the proceeds will go to local non-profit organizations in Greater Philly and South Jerz through United Way. The Roots already hold it down for the Roots

Mind you, Barclays Center is due for opening at the end of September with Jay christening the stage first night.  Along with Rihanna, the two Roc Nation stars will star in BBC Radio 1 Hackney Weekend in London June 23-24; their cultural festival before the Olympic Games, starting July 27.

Hmph. 2012 summer will be realer than I thought.

Shouts to Rapdose on the footage.
