jay-z, life cover and album cover

When I was a kid, the cover of LIFE magazine was for the shooting of John F. Kennedy or Martin Luther King Jr., now Jay-Z is showing us that it's for the comeback of rappers. Go figure.


Some quotes from the Life Cover story:

"I listen to the song 'Victory' on Puff's No Way Out album," Jay-Z tells LIFE of his preshow routine. "When Notorious B.I.G. comes in on the first verse, it feels like Rocky to me."

"When I'm onstage, I'm thinking, Is this going to be the town where they don't know the music? But even in Poland, they knew my lyrics," Jay-Z tells LIFE.

"I don't feel like I'm living in a bubble. I still feel like a man of the people," says Jay-Z, in a Mercedes in Paris, where his show sold out. "Give me great food and wine, and I'm good," he says. "I'm a cheap date."

And, this image is rumored to be the album cover for Kingdom Come.
