I was really excited when I saw this article because this book is fantastic and not just because I love rap. Jay-J is a complete inspiration, not just because he went from nothing to more than something, but it’;s the fact that he has expanded his empire by leaps and bounds in only a few short years. He was a successful music mogul, but was able to diversify himself so well. He has created a complete brand and image that is hard to replicate. Check out this book not only for tips on rhyming but also for some savvy business nuggets.
One of the wonders and strengths of free enterprise is its openness to newcomers. Entrepreneurs from the most unlikely backgrounds can achieve astonishing success. The key is offering products or services that other people want, even if they didn’t realize they wanted them before they saw them.

Check out how these two star’s Hollywood homes stack up against eachother.
A couple years back, Kanye put his West Hollywood Hills 3 bedroom/4 bathroom pad on the market (see “Kanye West Shows Eye for Design in His Hollywood Home“) which was quite interesting to say the least. Showing off his former love of ‘The Jetsons,’ Kanye decked out his home with playful pops of art. Surprisingly, he showed a serious modern approach to his home with mid-century inspired items and sleek furnishings.
Not too far away is Kim Kardashian’s currently Beverly Hills residence (see “Keeping Up with Kim Kardashian“) that has been featured on her reality show, ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ several times. Her 5 bedroom/4.5 bath abode is nothing less than glamorous (would we expect anything less with Kim?) sticking to a neutral palette and wood finishes. Much of her interior taste is quite classic and timeless that is carried through every room in the home.
