And even if you know not (or care not) about this hip hop mogul’s music or lifestyle, you ought to check out his new blog Life + Times.
It’s a super cool concept, very visually engaging and well-edited. Perusing around the site I noticed a lot of cool lifestyle imagery and articles that have literally nothing to do with rap or hip-hop music. For example, interviews with people like Chef Daniel Boulud and Gwyneth Paltrow and articles about Aether ski jackets and bags.
Here’s a little video clip from the blog launch… this just demonstrates how creativity in one sphere of life really flows into others and like him or not, don’t think you can argue that Jay-Z does possess that artistry and creativity and his blog makes it apparent he has the eye to appreciate it from others as well.
