In a corner of Jay’s office, on the floor, there’s a street sign that says MARCY AVE., a remnant from his days in the Marcy projects. And on his desk, in the center, is the Best Rap Solo Performance Grammy he won for "99 Problems," the guitar-heavy 2003 single produced by Rick Rubin from the CD that announced Jay’s retirement as a recording artist, The Black Album. The Grammy arrived a few days ago, and he decided to let it sit on his desk for a moment before bringing it home. Six years ago, Jay boycotted the Grammy Awards, saying, "Too many major rap artists continue to be overlooked." Not anymore. "I didn’t care about Grammys until we won one," he says. This is his fourth. Beyonce has eight. He says she teases him about having so few.

    Rap mags try and use my black ass

    Or understand the intelligence that Jay-Z has
    I’m from, rags to riches, niggaz I ain’t dumb
    I got 99 problems, but a bitch ain’t one – hit
