Top 10 Reasons Why Kids Should Admire Jay-Z Jay-Zpromo1. He’s with Beyonce. There are plenty of reasons, but this is probably the best one. He kicks back with the hottest chick in the game. j1

2. The cars. Jay has evolved throughout the years. In that time, he has driven every hot car that’s been fashionable to drive. There has even been a GM line launched to match his proprietary color, Jay-Z Blue. After Bentleys, where else was there to go? It’s Maybach time. After copping the cars, Jay and Rick Ross did the soundtrack with “Maybach Music.” j23. Imagine owning a night club in New York City. It’s stocked with personal friends and beautiful women. Your Grammy-winning music plays throughout the place. You’re dressed head-to-toe in clothing made by your clothing label. While working the room, you stop at a table to pose for a photo and have a shot. Like everyone else, you opt for a shot of your own brand of Scottish vodka.  “Armadale for everybody!”j34. Business saavy. Jay-Z topped the list of Forbes Magazine’s Top 20 Highest-Paid Rappers. He’s down slightly (like everyone else,) falling just short of his $80 million annual income. His business sense is honed razor sharp.j45. Connections. Jay hob-nobs with music producers, endless artists, pro athletes, CEOs, and politicians. His free time is very scarce; and expensive. Talent giant Grabow wants a minimum of $80,000 to book Jay for an event.j56. Talent. Besides being one of the best lyricists anywhere himself, Jay is the boss; with plenty of big name rappers at his disposal. Jay launched Kanye West, Beanie Siegel, Memphis Bleek, and Freeway. Amir, Ja Rule, and Rhianna are secondary. Island/Def Jam gives Rick Ross, Ludacris, and D.T.P. Duets with R. Kelly, Pimp C., Bun-B, Young Jeezy…this guy IS the music business. j67. The Nets. Jay’s stake in the NBA is also huge. As part owner of the New Jersey Nets, he strives to combine hip-hop and fashion success with his team. Jay wants to move the team to Brooklyn, NY, but has been met with opposition (Difficult takes a day, impossible takes a week.) Imagine being remembered as the man who gave Brooklyn an NBA franchise? Props for life. Hov also stays in close contact with Cavs superstar Lebron James. This team is a dynasty in the making. Jay is handling location and logistics now; paving the way for his star to jet in from Cleveland. j78. His principles. Despite all the yellow bottles we’ve seen with him in the past, Jay-Z is over Cristal. Cristal should have been paying Jay all along, for furthering the brand. Instead, they made smug, racist remarks about Jay’s affinity for it. Jay has switched over to “The Ace of Spades (Armand de Brignac.) The subliminal hit came when Jay sent back a bottle of Cristal in the “Show Me What You Got” video. Fuck ’em, Jay; keep hustling.j9 9. The awards. American Music Awards, BET Awards, BET Hip-Hop Awards, Billboard R&B Hip-Hop Awards, Blockbuster Entertainment Awards, Brit Awards, Grammy Awards, International Dance Music Awards, MOBO Awards, MTV VMA Awards, MTV Austrailia VMAs, MTV Europe Music Awards, MTV Japan VMA’s, NAACP Image Awards, Radio Music Award, Soul Train Awards, Soul Train Music Awards, Shockwaves NME Awards, Source Awards, Vibe Awards, WB Radio Music Awards, and World Music Awards. Props.  j1010. Summer Plans. Jay-Z is rumored to be gearing up for a 2010 tour with Young Jeezy. This pair-up will no doubt expose the grimey, drug-dealing side of Jay. I can’t wait. Throw Ricky Ross on that bill, and watch it sell out twice. Shit, T.I should be out by then. Luda maybe?j11There you have it. Jay should go crazy now and start his own religion. Well, maybe not…that’s really more of a Diddy thing to do. jay intro
