The Jigga Man back in the day.

Here’s a classic photo of Jay-Z back when it was appropriate for Jay to refer to himself as “Young.” You can easily see this photo was taken in the 80’s. Peep all the gold jewelry, and of course check his footwork. OG Air Jordan 4s. Am I the only one that thinks this would make a great cover for Jay-Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail album?

    @ G-Roc…u aren’t the only one to think so. Sure there are others. I’m not one of em tho. That would be just another rip-off, in a long-@$$ line of rip-offs, of Nas’s “illmatic” album cover. That said, jay lookin like he had all the chips in the game back then. Lol
    But um… “Ether”…remember that, aggin? Hah
