#HOVology: is a project inspired by 'the nothing to something' success of Jay Z, it is comprised of my own understanding of his logic in lyricism, the selection of his production team.. what worked, what didn't… how things came into place and what influenced eras/trends.. so take this journey with me. 
*** DISCLAIMER: this project is not proclaiming Jay Z as 'the greatest' nor my personal 'most favorite' of anything it is a translation of mainstream success in not only hip-hop but the music industry as a whole.
