Jay-Z Hublot

Rap mogul JAY-Z turns 48 years old today (Dec. 4). The rap mogul whose real name is Shawn Carter has been in the rap game for 3 decades — longer than most of his fellow rappers have been alive.

Celebrities of every stripe wished the old man a happy birthday on Twitter.com.

“[H]appy birthday Jay Z. Thank you for every single lyric and every ounce of knowledge you continue to share with us. legend,” tweeted singer Bryson Tiller on Monday.

Jay-Z, a Sagittarius, celebrated his 48th birthday early with the Brooklyn Nets. Brent Yormark, CEO of Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment ordered an intricately detailed custom cake commemorating the mogul’s life and career.

Emory Jones posted a video showing off the cake on his Instagram.com account on Saturday.

    Happy Birthday!

  • Mischelle

    Happy birfday Jigga. On another note, Emory Jones wins best friend of the century award. Jigga has a career b/c of him and as soon as he was released, Jay held him down as he should.

  • Elevated Soul

    What?…I thought he was atleast 50.

  • Calikush

    Happy Birthday, Jigga Lips!!!!!

  • Harley

    Right you either age or your dead. Not sure why people are hung up on aging it’s a beautiful and natural process that one goes thru if they are fortunate

  • Duhjaaango

    Just give me a regular cake, all that fondant…

  • Jen_no_juice

    That’s a nice watch Jigga. Happy gday

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Maybe he’s not vain and just doesn’t care. Good for him.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    So he’s a Sag and Bey’s a Virgo.
    I can’t believe they have survived each other this long.

  • Desiree Edwards

    48 is NOT old….lol

  • Bonsai

    Jay Z is not a Sagittarius, he is a Ophiuchus. It’s the 13th Zodiac sign that NASA discovered last year. Those born between Nov 29th – Dec 17th are Ophiuchus.

  • Miss Thang

    Can you please put a warning before such graphic images?

  • Renee26

    I was just about to say something about this LOL
    I wonder if he lies a lot just to be lying like the other Sag men I know….they convince themselves of their own lies too. It’s laughable

  • cherrypie

    Wait sooooo 48 is now old???? Well I’m 42….so i guess I’ll be considered old 6 yrs from now. Smh

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Ophiuchus is a constellation – not a sign of the zodiac.
    At least that’s what it says online. I had to check because two people in my family are Sagittarius.

  • Renee26

    That cake is busy as hell…I wonder if it tasted good

  • bella28498 .

    yea 48 is old

  • bella28498 .

    smh lol lawd

  • bella28498 .

    lol thank you

  • Renee26

    How much of an improvement would that really be??

  • Ms.Vanilla

    lol. girl you’re funny.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I was thinking that Virgos can be very critical and you can’t convince a Sag that his ish sticks.
    That sounds like a Sag would just disconnect from the relationship just to avoid being criticized and being someone’s science project.

  • what?why

    Oh, I thought he was 50 +, same difference.

  • Applebootay

    The cake looks awesome….BTW 48 isn’t old by any stretch of the imagination….

  • Applebootay

    Women sags are liars too…

  • Ang

    He’s wasn’t already 48? *shrugs*

  • Tammie Reed

    I thought he was older than me….hmm?

  • Wayup!

    To quote our infamous President… I find Sag to be SAD…
    Not only do they lie about their life.. They talk about others like THEY have no flaws
    Just my experience….
    This one Sag I know swears up and down he used to be a ball Hustler…
    Yet he 600pds and claims that he’s at the court at least 3xs a week..
    My question to him each time would be “what did you do on the court?
    He claims he passes the ball allot.. Whereas “when he was in shape”… He was running up and down the court..??
    I ask “when was that”?
    He says “oh.. About 30 years ago.” Boy 30 years ago you was bout 21 and you was still obese so…
    Lil sh!t like that. Irkin…

  • Coy little wink

    ???

  • Ni Ni

    Yeah, he old, but my old azz is old too even though im nine yrs younger than him. Most of yawl on this blog is old too…yawl just in denial ?.

  • LadyL

    EXACTLY! I hate that. Most people don’t even make it to see his age, Especially our young black males. Be happy that GOD has allowed you to see another day and another year of life period!
    Happy Birthday Jay- God bless you with many more to come.

  • LadyL

    He is beautiful to someone.

  • LadyL

    Me too..

  • SDot

    Exactly LadyL.

  • bhavana

  • Karen Brady

  • Karen Brady

    But the worst part is they act like they’re not going to be that age some day. Bet they won’t be calling it old then. SMH.

  • Gamer?? Chick

    Try 53…

  • Rachel B

    No. You have 75 year old still pushing along. Elderly is really in your mid 70s. We have a lot of youth left. I am still in my 30s but 40 is approaching. I am very much so youthful and happy.

  • Rachel B

    And 68 ain’t even that old. A lot of them is still pushing along. Mid 70s is when you are up there. Think about Samuel Jackson is around that age.

  • Renee26

    Lmao I believe it!!

  • Renee26

    Lmao I don’t know any but I believe it

  • Paula Wilson

    I/m from BK too. Most people in the 40s are still HOT and LOVE hiphop!

  • Renee26

    Yes we Virgo’s are and we see right through all the lies and BS and will call them on it too. We analyze damn everything so it’s hard to pull the wool over our eyes

  • Karen Brady

  • YellowSauce

    when people are dead at 48 they say they died too young but when you are alive and 48 they are ready to put you in an old folks home … I refuse to let stupid humans cut my life short …someone 68 would love to be 48 and someone dead at 22 WISHES they could reach 48 … silly humans … smh

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    (keep it sober) Lol!

  • ALLMINE?

  • ALLMINE?

    his mom always looked young to me. hes her youngest chid too.. lol

  • ALLMINE?

    i was listening to reasonable doubt at 10..lmao. time flies..

  • MsChocCookie

    He’s in his 50’s but who cares 50’s is the new 40’s although it’s not doing Jay any justice. You can’t fix whats broken in a million pieces but Bey loves him.

  • teather

    Go Jigga!!! We love you! Lookin’ good. 48 is just the beginning. Old man? Funny. Whatever, you’re here with US and We’re glad!!

  • Look@m3

    Old rich man that is….but 48 can’t be that darn old come on!!! Jeesh…when you report on Cynthia from Housewives do you call her old?

  • Wayup!

    But the kicker is … he telling me the story he got the straight face. ????
    To the point where I almost believe him until I had to step outside of my reality and look at the shi+ for what it really is… He’s been a long-term long-distance friend so I don’t completely cut him off but when he start talking that bulshi+ most of the time we watching a series or watching the game… I just know.. I just nod and roll my eyes..
    Not all Sag are like this.. I’m sure… Except the ones I met ?

  • dontgetblocked

    He needs to get those old knees off the stage. Bought all those Grammy nominations for that lame album. Kendrick Lamar is killing him.

  • Lolly Asher

    ok wow my mind totally rejected it as a cake until this comment. Yeah that’s too much going on.

  • Lolly Asher

    Well we know he’s a vampire or something right so yeah he’s old:)

  • Guest©

    Great point.?

  • Guest©

    Honestly I remember when I thought 40 was old but now, being in my 30’s, that has changed, lol. Jay is seasoned not old.

  • Guest©

    Aww, give her a hug n kiss if you can. I wish I had my grandmothers?

  • Guest©

    Right, at some point one must accept their “ugly”.

  • imright

    first of all Hov came in the game in 96…hes been in the game for 21 years PUT SOME RESPECK on his name ?? Happy Bday Jigga

  • Khaliah

    Go, YellowSauce! Good observation!!

  • bella28498 .

    68 is one foot on the grave and the other foot on a banana peel. 48 is old. If you’re ball room dancing and Chicago stepping when u go out you are old.

  • sunni_daze

    Was the album over your head. It was jive like adult music, it wasn’t made for the kids.

  • Ni Ni

    Aint no use in lying about it chile ?.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    4:44 is a BEAST!! I think you’re right though. These young people only want to hear about bloody shoes and smoking weed. He was talking sense and grown business.

  • sunni_daze

    That good grown up music.

  • NIA

    He is not Old!.

  • ?Royalty?

    ??

  • Maxima

    This!!!

  • Michael Washington

    What makes him as GREAT as you people believe him to be?

    I think culturally we are group thinkers…If cool people dig him…i dig him too…same for Yonce…like her yes..but shes like 9 on my list of 8

  • Michael Washington

    Oh and for the record , Blacks stay and Love to call people old and passe….its a way of devaluing and discrediting always remember that… Black call people 28 and up “long in the tooth” lol…

    I hate the way he speaks tho, its very postured..lol…

  • Goddess™
