About the Author:

Richard Spilsbury is an experienced author of nonfiction books for young people. He has written about a wide range of topics including science, nature, and history.

From Booklist:

Not only one of hip-hop’s greatest artists, Jay-Z has become one of the music industry’s most influential entrepreneurs, and thus he is a fitting inclusion in the Titans of Business series. Starting with Jay-Z’s early life as Shawn Corey Carter in a poor Brooklyn neighborhood, the biography recounts how he overcame his difficult adolescence as a drug dealer with his desire to be a musician. The straightforward text recognizes that Jay-Z’s success can be attributed as much to his business skills as his singing talent. When his first record company failed to widely distribute his debut single, Jay-Z founded his own record company, Roc-A-Fella. Since then, the book describes, he has also worked as CEO of Def Jam Records and created a business empire that includes designing his own clothing line and producing films. The author also notes Jay-Z’s critics, who contend he is more interested in his brand than his music. Numerous color photos, quotes by Jay-Z, and entrepreneurial tips throughout ensure the musician’s continued popularity among young readers. Grades 5-7. --Angela Leeper
