Jay-Z with his Global Leadership Award

When you put Jay-Z‘s career into perspective, it’s hard not to be in awe of the man who went from “Marcy to Madison Square” and who continues to inspire hip-hop fans with his achievements.

The Rocawear founder attended the 2008 Global Leadership Awards in New York City yesterday and was honored with the “Champions of the Millennium Goals Award” for his “Water For Life” initiative and partnership with the United Nations.

Does Jay inspire you and if so, why?

  • Luxury Life says:

    Watch 50 Cent hate on that I heard him saying that beyonce is the reason that JayZ is known globally now and that he doesnt think JayZ businesses arent worth a billion. But lets be clear J has come a long wait further than any of us couldve ever thought he knew when to cut people off who he thought was stopping his growth, and though we arent over the Dame and Rocafella breakup we have to understand that it had to be done….. If you follow this blueprint we could all be a success too…. BK NY EAST Coast Hustlers Hip Hop JAYZ Fans stand up and remember to Vote November 4th dont talk about it be about it !!!!!!!

  • Joe Q. says:

    Man, Jay has really done it again. He is truly a hip hop legend, mogul, philanthropist, and he’s proven that he’s a good person as well. That was cool that he has time in his busy schedule to support such worthy causes. Role model, homie. ROC 4 EVA.
