Jay-Z and Ciara and Fabolous

Tuesday, June 30, 2009 , Posted by Ashton at 6/30/2009

Jay-Z stands at a peculiar crossroads in his career: He’s left the boardroom and his position as president of Def Jam after a rocky tenure running rap’s premier label. Jay-Z is still a big star; it’s the industry that’s gotten small. Nowadays, rappers who used to shoot for diamond are lucky to even go platinum. So, the stakes are high for Blueprint 3, Jay-Z’s first album since leaving Def Jam as an executive and an artist. The reaction for his new songs is lukewarm but Jay-Z still has a catalog of hits to dip into. Opening is a pair of consummate entertainers: preternaturally limber pop-dance dynamo Ciara and pop-rap slickster Fabolous.
