Jay-Z was born in Brooklyn, New York and was raised in the infamous Marcy Houses public housing. According to his mother, he used to wake up his siblings at night when he was a kid to bang out drum patterns on the kitchen table. At the beginning of his career, he relied on flow and wordplay, and he had a penchant for mining beats from the popular producers of the day. Today his flow is flawless and he specializes in double entendre.
