Morrison Hotel Gallery is thrilled to present this Jay-Z photo gallery. One of the world's best-selling music artists, Jay-Z released his debut album Reasonable Doubt in 1996, just one year after founding the record label Roc-A-Fella Records. He has been musically inclined since childhood, nicknamed "Jazzy" around his old neighborhood and later attending a technical education high school with rappers like Busta Rhymes and The Notorious B.I.G., who would later make an appearance on his album Reasonable Doubt. Through the years, he has created some of the most popular rap and hip hop songs on the radio, collaborating with top charting artists like Kanye West, Rihanna, and the pop and hip hop diva that would later become his wife, Beyoncé Knowles. Jay-Z has said his earliest influences are driven by the soul records his parents used to play, including Marvin Gaye and Donna Hathaway, and according to a 2009 interview by Kyle Anderson with MTV news, states, "As long as I can hear their soul through the wax, that's what I really listen to."
