Jay-Z Plays Chess on the Cover of Time Magazine

All I can do is smile as I look at the cover of this magazine. With all the BS around his trip to Cuba, Jay-Z continues to play chess while everyone is playing checkers. I consider this to be one of the most important covers of his career.

Not so much because he made the Time 100 list, but when you talk about visual media (with respect to people of color) you have to take stock in what this image represents for a whole generation. A generation that just had a dream of making it. This image represents genius, beauty, sacrifice and triumph.

Jay-Z on the cover of Time Magazine for something POSITIVE is a true illustration that the sky is limit. You just have to be fearless, passionate, and a true visionary. Kudos to Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter. -LOM
