Hip-Hop Rumors: Is There A Jay-Z Movie On The Way?


Is Jay-Z following in the footsteps of Eminem and 50 Cent and putting together a movie on his life? Sort of! According to the NY Post, Oscar winning Director Ron Howard and producer Brian Gazer will be filming Jigga’s “Made In America” music festival in Philadelphia. Whether it’s a documentary or an actual movie, we don’t know…but maybe this will be another “Back Stage” type of film. Check out what Brian Gazer told the NY Post below:

“The festival showcases 20 pre-eminent artists that speak to the new generation. I am producing the film with Steve Stoute and Jay. Ron is directing. It is going to be born through Jay-Z’s perspective . . . how he puts the event together.” Grazer added, “Jay stayed the king for a very long time . . . I can’t even begin to explain how he is capable of remaining relevant. He is a phenom, like a musical Michael Jordan.”

This sounds very exciting! The Budweiser sponsored festival is taking place on September 1-2 at Philly’s Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Fairmount Park. Everyone who’s anyone will be hitting that stage, including Drake, Rick Ross and Maybach Music Group Run-DMC, and even Pearl Jam.

The film is the brainchild of Jay-Z and Steve Stoute. Hov went out and got an Oscar winning director and producer – he does everything BIG! What type of footage do you think will be included in the doc-movie?

    I dont understand how niggas can listen to Swagger jacker and still be a Jay z fan
    line for line, bar for bar Jay Z is the greatest rapper biter in Hip Hop history hes not TOP#5 material maybe the lower half of the Top #10.

    • Lamonte Johnson

      your point?

      • kstaxx

        My point is Jay Z is a biter and doesnt deserve the high praises he gets as being one of the great rappers. He is not on 2pac, BIG, Rakim, Nas, Scarface or Eminem level. They are real autentic artists, JayZ is a swagger jackin thief line for line bar for bar.

      • Lamonte Johnson

        Why do you care how much anyone else likes him or not tho? Stating this opinion may mean something to you but it’s not gonna have so much of an effect that he gonna stop doing what you don’t like so it’s ultimately pointless to even bring it up

  • LetsBeRealpeople

    Whose going to play him? Will this include a scene where he gets b’tch slapped by Hatian Jack?

  • LetsBeRealpeople

    He is no damn Jordan, that comparison goes to Rakim or RZA, if you must. To be like Mike requires skill not ghostwriting and publication snatching.

    • S. Long

      So you saying Jay has no rhyming skills? SMH… If you can’t see Jay is the Jordan of rap then you rap isn’t for you, The man is making an empire off of rap like Jordan did with basketball and selling sneakers.

      • LetsBeRealpeople

        Ok, Carter is no Jordan. There is no Jordan, but Jordan. I see where the brand-wash is kicking in, but let me correct that. Michael Jordan is an athlete, who came up in the time of kings, who established the game to be a respectable commodity of brain and physical power. Jordan became the standard of the idea American College Athlete turned Pro. UCLA brought it, but what Jordan did, was turn the modern athlete into the most wanted, by skill , scholar, and all out efficiency of what an athlete is.Then, he changed the game itself. The NBA scrambling to defeat floor rules and point advantages. Then, he changed the game again by taking flight. His steadfast ability to craft his skill, challenge the outliers of the game and to his crown they couldn’t deny to call him the greatest. Then, the sponosorship came to him. They wanted his hardwork, sweat and pain/glory attached to their product. Then, they caught flight and got the consumer to costume themselves in the “like Mike” armor. Kids running around thinking that them 260 shoes gave them that power. Carter is brand savy, and can repeat lyrics like a mug, but he is no wordsmith. He is a remedial beat snatching opportunist, covering his “marcy park” street cred in other kings glory. You can go ahead and make like a muppet with his hand up yo behind to flap your lips to sing his praises, but he is no knig, no Jordan, no hip hop extension into the good life. He’s a business brand. He has said that the whole time you’ve been sleeping.
