Jay-Z History and Facts
Jay-Z was born Shawn Corey Carter in Brooklyn, New York on December 4, 1969, and had a rough childhood. He father abandoned the family when he was very young and when he was 12, his brother stole some jewelry from him and Jay-Z shot him. His mother sparked his interest in music by buying him a boom box early on, which he used to listen to other artists of the day. He began writing lyrics and freestyling rap at a young age and gained the nickname "Jazzy" around his neighborhood.
The nickname "Jazzy" was shortened over time to "Jay-Z" which he adopted as his stage name. In 1996, Jay-Z released his first album entitled Reasonable Doubt and the album reached number 23 on the charts and was well received by music critics. In 1997, he released his second album, which focused on his difficult childhood and upbringing called My Lifetime Vol. 1 . This album met with an even better reception than his first one and eventually was certified platinum in the United States.
In 1998, he released his next album called Vol.2...Hard Knock Life, which continued in the tradition of his early work of focusing on his upbringing. The album sold over 5 million copies and was eventually certified five times platinum. During this period in his life, he had a brief run in with the law when he was accused of stabbing Lance "Un" Rivera, a record producer he thought had bootlegged his third album. The third album, Vol 3...Life and Times of S. Carter, was the album that caused the issues between Rivera and Jay-Z.
He appeared in court and pled not guilty to the charges, which were eventually lowered and he pled guilty to a misdemeanor. He received three years of probation for the incident and vowed never to get himself if that type of situation again. Over the following years, he recorded and produced over 11 more albums, of which four were collaborative efforts with other artists. These artists include R. Kelly, Kanye West and Linkin Park. In addition, several other artists, such as Beyonce and Nas, have requested guest appearances on their projects.
