Where's Jay-Z from? Marcy, son!
Jay-Z is a Brooklyn boy at heart, and he's so thorough that he manages to close major business deals and big up his borough all at the same time.
From considering the name Brooklyn for his first-born daughter, to recording over six songs dedicated to New York City's most populated borough, Jay-Z goes hard.
