Jay Z Tickets
For decades the rapper, known to the public as Jay Z, has been respected as one of the most successful and profitable performers in the rap music industry. The artist, born Shawn Carter, is not only a rapper but a songwriter, successful record producer, entrepreneur and actor and has managed to completely take over the entertainment world with his incomparable music and his business savvy within the music industry.
Throughout Jay Z’s wildly successful career he has managed to sell more than 50 million albums world wide. He has received numerous awards including an impressive fourteen Grammy Awards for his work. He is the founder of Roc Nation, Roc-A-Fella Records and was the former CEO of Def Jam Records, proving that he not only has the musical knowledge to succeed on the performance side of music but on the production side as well.
Although the artist has received a great deal of attention due to his marriage to pop superstar Beyonce, the singer’s most impressive and admirable feats still lie within his professional career. As a performer, Jay Z currently holds the record for most number one albums by a solo artist ever in the history of the Billboard Hot 200 with 11 albums reach the number one spot. He has also had four number one singles reach the top spot on the charts as well.
With a record-setting solo career and recognition as one of the most respected and legendary rap artists of all time, the individual accomplishments of Jay Z have alone made him an icon in the industry. However, the rapper has also made musical history with many of his collaborations. The rapper has collaborated with artists like R. Kelly, Rihanna, Akon, P Diddy, Bono Missy Elliot and more. He even came together with fellow rapper, Kanye West, in 2010 to release a record setting collaboration EP titled Watch the Throne, an album that would give the performers some of their most successful tracks to date and that would set numerous billboard and iTunes records.
Even with all of his talents it is Jay Z’s skills as a performer that have given him such a respected career in music today. The rapper will be taking those skills on an explosive world-wide tour called the Watch the Throne tour, that promises to be one of the performers biggest tours to date.
