In conjunction with the recent release of his book Empire State of Mind: How Jay-Z Went from Street Corner to Corner Office, Forbes magazine reporter Zack O’Malley Greenburg discusses Jay-Z’s business endeavors and tactics on the road toward becoming of one of contemporary music’s biggest stars. Specific topics include how Greenburg researched the book, Jay-Z’s secrecy with the media, his dealing with hangers-on and rival rappers, whether hip hop generally steers away from feminine associations, whether Jay-Z’s business investments represent the extent of his reach or are instead an attempt to build up ostensibly 2nd-rate brands, his impact on Beyonce’s career, and obstacles he faced once he secured a record deal.
