Happy birthday Jay Z! Today, the rapper, record producer and entrepreneur turns 46. It’s been a busy year for the mogul, who’s traveled the world alongside wife Beyonce, daughter Blue Ivy, nabbed a victory in his copyright infringement trial over his 2000 hit “Big Pimpin,” and gained more exposure for Roc Nation Sports, which is on the upswing up due to new clients like middleweight champion boxer Miguel Cotto. So it’s only right that he celebrates in a big way this year.
Last year, the trio enjoyed Jay’s milestone birthday sightseeing in Ireland. While there’s no telling what Queen Bey has in store for her king this year, we’re sure they’ll be blowing out the candles together.
