November 15 - Jay-Z joins elite company with "American Gangster" release

On this day 4 years ago, Jay-Z went back to the top of the charts with his album "American Gangster". The album would be the 10th "Jay Hova" release to hit No. 1, which temporarily tied him with Elvis Presley for 2nd all time (The Beatles are at 19 No. 1 albums). In 2009, Jay-Z released his 11th No. 1 album, "The Blueprint 3" which gave him sole possession of 2nd all time.

"American Gangster" was a very well received album and gave us the singles "Blue Magic" and "Roc Boys". The album was a follow up to Hova's 2006 release, "Kingdom Come".

Jay-Z has sold over 50 million albums worldwide and has a reported net worth of over $150 million. He is widely regarded as one of the best rappers in the history of the genre and has worked with several big artists including Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, and Beyonce.

Jay-Z has many other interests outside of music. He is a part owner of the New Jersey Nets and is the creator of the clothing line "Rocawear". Jay-Z is often linked with "The Illuminati", which people believe is a secret society comprised of the most powerful people in the world.
