Jay-Z, one of the best to ever bless a mic, is the living embodiment of what it means to be ikonic.
In 2004, he released his documentary ‘Fade to Black,’ a two-hour long offering that documents his career up until that point.
Today this, once hard to find, film became available for streaming on Tidal, centered mostly around his sold-out Madison Square Garden concert which was originally presented as his farewell from hip-hop and the conclusion of his career. Lucky for us that never held true.
It’s a birds eye view of his budding legacy at the time and it also includes footage of the creative process behind his fabled Black Album.
For true lovers of hip-hop, this is a spine-chilling viewing experience.
