Jay Z

Rapper, songwriter and producer, Jay-Z, didn’t have a record label when he started out, so he founded his own, Roc-A-Fella Records in 1995. Since then he’s had 13 solo platinum albums plus collaborations with Kanye West and wife Beyoncé with whom he also has 3 children. Outside his music career, Jay-Z produced the 2002 urban gangster drama “Paid in Full,” based on the life and crimes of Alpo Martinez, AKA “The Mayor of Harlem.” You’ll see why Jay-Z was fascinated by this drug kingpin in “Gangsters America’s Most Evil: The Mayor of Harlem.”
