When Jay-Z unveiled his new Life+Times website to the public on April 4, the Brooklyn rapper gave fans from his Marcy Projects stomping grounds all the way to the Hollywood Hills an instant glimpse into his luxurious lifestyle. From posts about his favorite clothing trends to write-ups about the music he’s currently listening to (Warpaint?) and exclusive interviews with the likes of chef Daniel Boulud, S. Carter officially welcomed his followers to the good life.
As if that weren’t enough, Jay’s bestie, Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow, sat down with Hov earlier this week to talk about the site and what it’s like to be the “coolest man on Earth.” “Women keep men cool,” said the 41-year-old superstar. “The hotter the chick the cooler the guy… that sounds like a really bad rap line!”
With Life+Times garnering a buzz, XXL wondered what other MCs would school readers on if they had their own piece of the Internet. Check out our picks for five spitters that should follow in Jay’s footsteps.
