I’m Not a Businessman; I’m a Business, Man  商業嘻哈一把抓 —— Jay Z

  Shawn Carter, better known as hip-hop heavyweight Jay Z, is the greatest rapper of all time. He has sold over 100 million records with 13 albums that have gone number one on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, which is even more impressive than Elvis Presley’s accomplishments. In addition, Carter has 21 Grammys, and counting, to his name. His skill with words is thought of as one of the best in the game, and his knack for business has made him one of the richest men in America. However, things were not always like this for him.
  Growing up in the poor neighborhoods of New York City, Carter made money by
leading a life of crime. His experiences growing up influenced his early songs, which he would often rap about around his mother’s kitchen table. It was clear that Carter had a natural ability to freestyle his troubles, victories, and feelings into his songs even as a young child.
  Carter was first heard on Jaz-O’s records in the early 1990s. In 1996, he released his
debut album, Reasonable Doubt, which became a classic on the streets. Soon, Carter entered into the music business with his own record label, Roc-A-Fella. The hard lessons he learned as a child growing up helped him become one of the most successful businessmen in the music industry.


 

  蕭恩•卡特,以嘻哈巨擘『傑斯』聞名,是史上最棒的饒舌歌手。他以十三張在告示牌百大唱片排行榜登頂的專輯賣出了一億多張唱片,這甚至比貓王的成就更加令人折服。除此之外,卡特坐擁二十一座葛萊美獎,而這個數字還在持續增長中。他使用文字的技巧被認為是業界內最好之一,而他在商業方面的本領也使他成為美國最富有的人之一。然而,一切事情對他來說並不是一直如此順遂。
  卡特成長於紐約市的貧窮區,靠過著犯罪的生活賺錢。他成長的經歷影響了他早期的歌曲,他常常在母親的廚房餐桌旁唱著這些饒舌歌曲。甚至在還很小的時候,卡特顯然已擁有即興唱出他的麻煩、成就以及情緒的天賦。
  卡特的歌聲首次在九○年代早期 Jaz-O 的唱片中被聽到。他在 1996 年時發行了他的首張專輯《合理懷疑》,這張專輯在街頭成為經典。很快地,卡特以自己的唱片公司 Roc-A-Fella 進入了音樂界。那些他從孩提時代成長中所學習到的痛苦經驗幫助他成為音樂界裡最成功的商業人士之一。
