Ladies and gentlemen, there is a new Jay-Z.
So if you want the old Hov, buy his old albums. This new Shawn Carter is here to stay. Gone is the old rugged Jay-Z who would never fall in love. Sure, he used to be the worst, switching chicks every day, the guy who had dudes so mad that they wished he was gay.
But this new Jay-Z is no threat. He smiles and goes on vacation. Yes, the new Jay likes to vacation on big yachts, in flip-flops. Wait, not just any flip-flops, but white Louis boat shoes. If you got a problem with that, then the Brooklyn emcee has some words for you:
"Y'all should grow the f*ck up, come here let me coach you."
Let's face it, when it comes to rappers, no one has matured or changed more than Jay. Last night proved that. The usually stone-faced rapper tweeted a picture of himself in a b-boy stance in the Barclay's Center where he's getting ready to perform 8 sold out shows. Jay seems like he's just living life and actually having fun!
We're not used to Jay-Z sharing this much, but if you weren't paying close attention recently, then you might have missed a few non-Hova like moments from Jay-Z. Check 'em out below.
We're telling you: with a wife like Bey and a new baby, it's a whole new Jay!
Jay-Z once rapped that he can't wear skinny jeans because his knots are too fat. Yet, in some recent flicks we witnessed Jay-Z wearing skinny jeans while getting off a helicopter. "Y'all should grow the f*ck up."
While getting in some chill time with his wife, Hov was spotted sipping an alcoholic beverage out of a coconut while lying on the beach. What happed to sipping Mai Tais down in Nevada with Ty Ty? "Y'all should grow the f*ck up."
Not only that, apparently the Watch The Throne rapper also has a side job as a table for Beyonce's food.
There was a time when you never saw Jay and Beyonce let off any form of PDA, now this!
And this! Matching outfits!
Even face grabs. Aww.
Ice cream socials in Paris. What happened to no room service, just snacks and shit?
Hov has been a fan of tennis, but watching a tennis match with the Carlton Banks sweater over the shoulders? Swag! Marcy.
When you're in love you do new things, like bury your wife in the sand.
The first images of Jay-Z on daddy duty were a bit of a shock!
But seeing Jay-Z speaking goo goo ga ga language took the cake! All jokes aside, we like the new and improved Hov!
