JAY-Z X ABSOLUT: NY-Z Documentary

As far as the background story goes, we’ve heard most of this before. Jay discussing the influence of his parents’ collection of classic soul, his love of New York, what it means to perform at Madison Square Garden. I think what’s crazy though is how the context of the conversation keeps changing. What makes his career so important to Hip-Hop is the experience of seeing just how far he can really take it. Every time we see him, the collaborations are bigger, the imagery is more iconic and the story becomes more legendary.
