jay-z. [photogenic, hip hop week.]

As an emcee, he is actually remarkably unremarkable. His flow is usually stunted and unimaginative, rarely is there a clever turn of phrase to be found, and often words don’t even rhyme (and not in a intentional, poetic way, just in your average, lack of skill way). However, in spite of it all it cannot be denied that Jay-Z is one bad-ass motherfucker. He is the king of the Hip Hop world, both in finances and in influence. He is as powerful a force as there is in musical entertainment. In his own words (and this is one of the few clever turns of phrase he’s offered), /i’m not a businessman/ i’m a business, man/

Also, let’s not forget his ability to wear a t-shirt and sunglasses with such casual sexiness and swagger that he makes it look like a finely tailored suit.

And, since it is entirely possible I will never blog about Jay-Z again, here is another.

    The fact that he’s wearing a watch that probably costs more than my master’s degree helps his sartorial brilliance too.

      And in addition to that, the cost of that wine/cigar combo in the second picture would probably cover two-three months of my rent.

    I used a similar picture in a blog post I did on 9/15/11, that discussed pairing cigar with spirits. People tend to associate cigars with aged spirits, but there are some wines that will do fine also. Feel free to leave comments on the post, thanks! http://thecongenialhour.tumblr.com/post/10255208744/ahhhh-the-jiggaman-makes-it-look-so-cool-doesnt
