Sean Carter zet zijn eerste muzikale stappen door zijn cd’s uit de kofferbak te verkopen. In 1995 start hij zijn eigen platenlabel samen met Damon Dash en Kareem Bigs, Roc-a-fella Records.

In 1996 verschijnt zijn debuutalbum Reasonable Doubt. Al snel tekent hij een contract bij Def Jam, waarna Puff Daddy zijn album In My Lifetime Vol. 1 verschijnt. In de Top 40 komen we zijn samenwerking met Foxy Brown op I’ll Be tegen, wat zijn eerste bescheiden hit wordt.

Nog geen jaar later is het album Vol. 2… Hard Knock Life, waaraan ook Swizz Beats en Timbaland meewerken een feit. Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem) wordt zijn tweede hit in ons land met een vijfde plaats als resultaat.

In 2003 werkt Jay-Z samen met Beyoncé, zijn toekomstige vrouw. ’03 Bonnie & Clyde staat in het voorjaar in de top 10. De hernieuwde samenwerking met Beyoncé, in de zomer van dat jaar op Crazy In Love, komt op de tweede plaats van de Top 40. Ook zijn samenwerkingen met Rihanna (Umbrella, 2007) en Alicia Keys (Empire State Of Mind, 2010) zijn succesvol en bereiken beide de tweede plaats.

In 2013 verschijnt zijn elfde studioalbum, Magna Carta Holy Grail. Tien jaar na de eerste successen van Jay-Z en Beyoncé staat het duo opnieuw in de tipparade, nu met Drunk In Love.


Songtekst

[Intro: Blades of Glory sample]
We're going to skate to one song… one song only

[Verse 1: Jay-Z:]
So I ball so hard mothafuckas wanna fine me, first niggas gotta find me
What's 50 grand to a mothafucka like me, can you please remind me?
(Ball so hard) This shit crazy, y'all don't know that don't shit faze me
The Nets could go 0 for 82 and I'd look at you like this shit gravy
(Ball so hard) This shit weird, we ain't even 'posed to be here
(Ball so hard) Since we here, it's only right that we'd be fair
Psycho: I'm liable to go Michael, take your pick
Jackson, Tyson, Jordan, Game 6
(Ball so hard) Got a broken clock, Rolleys that don't tick tock
Audemars that's losing time, hidden behind all these big rocks
(Ball so hard) I'm shocked too, I'm supposed to be locked up too
If you escaped what I've escaped, you'd be in Paris getting fucked up too
(Ball so hard) Let's get faded, Le Meurice for like 6 days
Gold bottles, scold models, spillin' Ace on my sick J's
(Ball so hard) Bitch, behave, just might let you meet 'Ye
Chi town's D. Rose, I'm moving the Nets to BK

[Hook:]
Ball so hard mothafuckas want to fine me
(That shit cray, that shit cray, that shit cray)

[Verse 2: Kanye]
She said, "'Ye can we get married at the mall?"
I said, "Look, you need to crawl 'fore you ball
Come and meet me in the bathroom stall
And show me why you deserve to have it all"
(Ball so hard) That shit cray, ain't it Jay? What she order, fish filet?
(Ball so hard) "Your whip so cold!" This old thing?
Act like you'll ever be around mothafuckas like this again
Bougie girl, grab her hand, fuck that bitch she don't wanna dance
Excuse my French but I'm in France, I'm just sayin'
Prince Williams ain't do it right if you ask me
Cause I was him, I would have married Kate and Ashley
What's Gucci, my nigga? What's Louis, my killa?
What's drugs, my deala? What's that jacket, Margiela?
Doctors say I'm the illest, cause I'm suffering from realness
Got my niggas in Paris and they going gorillas, huh!

[Interlude]
I don't even know what that means
(No one knows what it means, but it's provocative)
No it's not, it's gross (Gets the people going!)

[Hook]

[Verse 3: Kanye]
You are now watching the throne, don't let me get in my zone
Don't let me get in my zone, don't let me get in my zone
These other niggas is lyin, actin' like the summer ain't mine
(I got that hot bitch in my home) You know how many hot bitches I own?
Don't let me get in my zone, don't let me get in my zone
Don't let me get in my zone, don't let me get in my zone
The stars is in the building, they hands is to the ceiling
I know I'm 'bout to kill it, how you know? I got that feeling
You are now watching the throne, don't let me into my zone
Don't let me into my zone (I'm definitely in my zone)
