JayZ & Sinatra

Both grew up outside of New York City in poverty, both were involved in crime and both associated themselves with democratic presidents.

Jay-Z married Beyonce. Sinatra married actress Ava Gardner.

Jay-Z sings about New York in Empire State of Mind. Sinatra sings New York, New York.

Their music couldn’t be any more polar opposite but in their primes, they both were at the top of pop culture and they both claim New York as their own.

What do you think? Is Jay-Z our generation’s Frank Sinatra?
