PHOTOS: Jay-Z’s In An Empire State Of Mind In ‘Interview’ Magazine

Jan 15th, 2010 // 2 Comments

In this month’s Interview magazine, rap legend Jay-Z opens up about success, his music, and that whole Taylor Swift thing. The pictures from fashion photographer Craig McDean, (the same celeb snapper who gave us the nearly-nude Rihanna pics from this month’s W Magazine) show a pensive and serious Jay-Z. And why shouldn’t he look introspective? The man just turned 40. He tells Interview, “… in rap years, I’m like The Rolling Stones or U2.” We hope he’s not saying he plans to release a series of irrelevant albums and just rest on his old hits. (Ahem.) Take a look at these pics and you’ll agree: after all these years, you still can’t knock that he’s “a hustler baby”.

    Go get'em Jay! I am light years from being Gay(Respect to the community), but i can say with certainty how much i admire you, your swagger and the way you've grown to represent well the black man in America, as well as the little unknown guy in every corner who grow up deprived of dreams just to make a name for himself. Thank.
