The following are some of the many reasons why Jay-Z has style: He is able to rock a hip-hop attitude while he is suited up as CEO / Entertainment Mogul. He has never written down any of his lyrics before going into the studio. He is not afraid to take risks in the name of good music hence his Linkin Park Collaboration and the "Grey Album" . Over the past 15 years he has evolved as an individual which is reflected in his lyrics. Most people didn't realize it, but he made a powerful statement when featured on Punjabi MCs "Beware of the Boys". He is not threatened by the fact that he is married to a women who is currently selling more records than he is. He was able to run Def Jam Records and still stay true to himself as an MC. I can keep going, but the bottom line is, Jay-z has got style.
