Rapper, songwriter, producer, entrepreneur and hip-hop mogul Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter charts his unlikely rise from the Brooklyn projects to superstardom, sharing what he's learned along the way. Since 1996, the 21-time Grammy winner has dominated an evolution in popular culture, with more than 35 million records sold and 14 number one Billboard hits (second only to the Beatles). Candid, raw and real, Jay-Z offers personal revelations about integrity, failure and why knowing your truth is everything. He reflects on the challenges of growing up without a father and how they made their peace before his father's death. The entertainer offers his thoughts on the healing power of hip-hop and why we all must search for our own truth. Jay-Z says, "Belief in oneself and knowing who you are, I mean, that's the foundation of everything great." Jay-Z and his wife, Beyoncé, kicked off their On the Run II stadium tour Wednesday, June 6, 2018, in Cardiff, U.K., with stops in 15 cities across the U.K. and Europe. The 21-date North American leg begins July 25, 2018, in Cleveland.
