After their father, Adnis Reeves, abandoned the family, Jay-Z and his three siblings were raised by their mother, Gloria Carter.

Jay-Z claims in his lyrics that in 1982, at age 12, he shot his older brother in the shoulder for stealing his jewelry. Along with rapper AZ, he attended Eli Whitney High School in Brooklyn until it was closed. He then attended nearby George Westinghouse Career and Technical Education High School with rappers.

According to his mother, Jay-Z used to wake up his siblings at night banging out drum patterns on the kitchen table.

Known as “Jazzy” around the neighborhood, he later adopted the stage name as “Jay-Z” in homage to his mentor Jaz-O.

Jay Z Career

This album would later be included in Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time as No. 248 and eventually reach platinum status.

After reaching a new distribution deal with Def Jam in 1997, Jay-Z released his follow-up In My Lifetime, Vol. 1. Produced by Sean “Puff Daddy” it outsold his previous release.

In 1998, Jay-Z released Vol. 2, Hard Knock Life which spawned the biggest hit of his career at the time, “Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem)”. He relied more on flow and wordplay, and he continued with his penchant for mining beats from the popular producers of the day such as Swizz Beatz, an upstart in-house producer for Ruff Ryders and Timbaland.

In 1999, Jay-Z collaborated with Mariah Carey on “Heartbreaker“, a song from her seventh album, Rainbow. The song became Jay-Z’s first chart-topper in the US, spending two weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100.

In that same year, Jay-Z released Vol. 3… Life and Times of S. Carter. The album proved successful and sold over 3 million copies. Vol. 3’s most successful single was “Big Pimpin“, featuring UGK.

The album helped to introduce newcomer producers The Neptunes, Just Blaze, Kanye West, and Bink, which have all gone on to achieve notable success. This is also the first album where Jay-Z utilizes a more soulful sound than his previous albums. The Dynasty sold over two million units in the U.S. alone.
