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

Uh, uh, uh, yeah, uh, your boy is back
(Sexy sexy) I know y'all miss the bounce
Need to bounce for the sexy you know

Yeah ma, your dude is back, Maybach coupe is back
Tell the whole world the truth is back
You ain't got to argue about who could rap
Cause the proof is back just go through my rap
New York New York yeah where my troopers at
Where my hustlers where my boosters at
I don't care what you do for stacks
I know the world glued you back to the wall
You gotta brawl to that
I been through that, been shot at shoot back
Gotta keep it peace like a Buddhist
I ain't a New Jack nobody 'gon Wesley Snipe me
It's less than likely, move back
Let I breathe Jedi knight
The more space I get the better I write
(Oh) Never I write, but, if, ever I write
I need the space to say whatever I like, now just

(Change clothes and go) You know I stay, fresh to death I brought you from the projects
And I'm a take you to the top of the globe so let's go (Change numbers and go)
Uh huh yeah, uh (Now girl I promise you, no substitute) It's just me

And I 'gon tell you again let's get ghost in the phantom
You could bring your friend we could make this a tandem
You could come by yourself and you could stand him
Best believe I sweat out weaves, give afropuffs like R.A.G.E.
Awww you get If you could move it
Back it on up like a U Haul truck
Then run and tell them thugs you heard Hovi knew
He and the boy Phareal make beautiful music
He is to the east coast what Snoop is, to the west coast what Face is to Houston
Young Hov in the house it's so necessary
No bra with the blouse it's so necessary
No panties and jeans that's so necessary
Now why you fronting on me is that necessary
Do I to you look like a lame
Who don't understand a broad with a mean shoe game
Whose up on Dot Dot Dot and Vera Wang
Ma are you insane, let's just
What you want me to do?

(Change clothes and go) You know I stay, fresh to death I brought you from the projects
And I'm a take you to the top of the globe so let's go (Change numbers and go)
Uh huh yeah, uh (Now girl I promise you, no substitute) It's just me

Uh, uh (Sexy sexy) Woo! (Ah ah)
Uh huh (Sexy sexy) It's so necessary right) (Ah ah)
Uh huh, woo! (Sexy sexy) That's right it's a groove (Ah ah)
Uh huh, it's a groove (Sexy sexy) bring it back (Ah ah)

Young Hovi in the house it's so necessary
No bra with that blouse it's so necessary
No panties and jeans it's so necessary
Why you fronting on me?
Let's go to my hotel cause this don't go well
With those S Dots, try to stay fresh ma
Ma, I don't shop what the rest by
Oh no ma please respect ma
Jiggy this is probably purple label
Or that BBC or it's probably tailored
But y'all niggas acting way to tough
Throw on a suit get it tapered up, and let's just

(Change clothes and go) You know I stay, fresh to death I brought you from the projects
And I'm a take you to the top of the globe so let's go (Change numbers and go)
Uh huh yeah, uh (Now girl I promise you, no substitute) It's just me

(Ah ah) Uh uh (Sexy sexy) sing along (Ah ah)
Yeah, uh (Sexy sexy) turn your radio up (Ah ah)
Woo! (Sexy sexy) Put your hands in the air if your in the car (Ah ah)
Uh. Snap your fingers now (Sexy sexy) woo, uh (Ah ah)
Uh, uh, your boy is back
Uh huh, uh, uh, uh, the bounce is back
Uh, uh, woo, uh Hov is back, peace.
