Synopsis by Matthew Tobey
Shawn Carter, better known as Jay-Z, burst onto the hip-hop scene in 1996 with the release of his debut LP, Reasonable Doubt. Seven years later, when he began his self-imposed retirement from performing, Jay-Z had grown to be one of the most powerful forces in all of popular music, both as an award-winning and chart-topping emcee and as a wildly successful producer and businessman. This unauthorized biographical documentary from Music Video Distributors provides an intimate retrospective look at the life and career of the music icon.
