The salient points

  • That's not his real name you twat. His real name is Shawn Corey Carter.
  • When Mr Carter was younger he made money by selling drugs to other people, which is generally a bad idea. He doesn't do that any more.
  • In 1995 he started his own label called Roc-A-Fella and released his debut album 'Reasonable Doubt' a year later.
  • His albums have always a been a hit and miss to be honest, but 'The Blueprint 2' is probably his best and there have been some proper bangers along the way.
  • Exhibit A. Exhibit B. Exhibit C.
  • He's married to Beyoncé, which is 'quite something'.
  • In 2008 he headlined Glastonbury which made a lot of boring people quite upset.
  • 2011 saw the release of 'Watch The Throne', an ego-free collaboration with notorious minimalist Kanye West.
