Week 6 of "Entrepreneurs of the Week" goes to Brooklyn's own Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter!
Little needs to be said about this man that hasn't been said already, but I'm about to contradict myself by saying that keeping this short would be an injustice to him. His rise to fame and power through sheer power moves and business smarts would quickly become a story to be researched, analyzed, and replicated by many other creatives and entrepreneurs in the Black community. He is an inspiration to many, including myself. Being the second richest artist in the hip-hop community, Jay-Z has been the creative mind behind his very own streaming service, restaurant chain, record labels, and many more ventures. However, it all started in 1995, when Jay-Z launched Roc-A-Fella Records. This would be the catalyst for his unquenchable desire to embark on the numerous other ventures that he is currently managing. We all have the one venture that gives us a taste for entrepreneurship, and hearing Jay-Z's own 'first taste' is fascinating. What fascinates me the most, however, is his ability to seamlessly transition from boss to artist, and right back. In fact, I would challenge this notion that he transitions between these identities, and suggest that he simultaneously embodies these identities at any given time.
Again, to cut Carter's story this short would be an injustice. For this reason, I STRONGLY encourage you to read up and research this man's history of entrepreneurial ventures. A man who not only made it out of Brooklyn, but came right back to build it up. This is the goal. ·
