Jay-Z Covers GQ; Men Of The Year Issue

Jay-Z sports his Sunday best for the cover of GQ‘s December issue. If you’re keeping track, this is Hov’s second appearance as Gentleman Quarterly’s Man Of The Year. The issue’s on newsstands now, but you can peruse the feature here.

So will the God MC be changing diapers?
“Of course, of course. One hundred percent.”
And will we see you putting the car seat in the Maybach?
“Yeah,” Jay smiles. “Wouldn’t that be great? That would be a great picture.”

    I’ve become indifferent to this guy over the years but he is a legend. congrats!!!

  • The Truth

    So why is he the man of the year. They gave it to Drake last year so I knew they wouldn’t give two years in a row. If a hip-hop artist should of got was either J. Cole or Kanye. Kanye is resonsible for everything on WTT every concept. Hov proteges desevre this cover more than him.

  • Alicia Keys

    I thought GQ was for attractive men. You wouldn’t see the fat ugly bitch from Precious on the cover of Essence.

  • Real life

    Jay Z just look like a very insecure dudes to me. His postures lacks confidence, I just get that vibe even from his smile. On another note he will be pushing 42 in less than a month geez haha

  • rocstar

    All these talks about his looks is telling me rapradar is visited by a buncha homos. He’s a rapper not a model. We judge him on his rap skills not looks u fukin queeers.

  • Michelle

  • the thronein the arcade tron

    Jay-Z labelled a ‘bloodsucker’ by Occupy Wall Street movement Rapper’s clothing company is under fire after using the movement’s slogan and not handing over any money

  • shots fired

  • shots fired


  • ZoomZoomDad-Otis

    @rocstar. Theses are the new internet thugs. For example they say things like this “Jay-Z is a camel” or “50 Cent is irrelevant” or “Eminem is wack”. Jay got Beyonce, 50 Cent got business ventures poplin, Em is making great music and getting his artists poppin. Theses NET THUGS see people making moves yet their stuck in mom and dad’s basement.

  • asaps

    and drake should have never been on last year’s cover. he’s far less a fashion icon…wayne musta been maaaad. hip hop is like hydrogenated soybean oil, it’s a secret ingredient contained in everything wanted to sell.

  • Young Nigga

    @asaps Lil’ Wayne would no right to be mad his bitch ass was lock up most of the year.

    beyonce with the roots that what above average and jay was below average secret victoria my white ass


  • lost the throne

    Jay-z needs dame dash but dame dash does not need jay-z

    The book decoded was great but my mom bought it for xmas…best gift ever

    this is the music jay z i miss and collaboration was alway/s a bad karma for jay

    remember how you talked about biggie making fun of you 24/7 until that never again my nigga quote from the book………….jay got memory lane issues he makes others look good..and beyonce looks like the top and so does kanye ..that why he is man of the year they make more interest of him then he does of them = GQ can you buy that

  • first thing first.

    you people really need to chill with calling Jay Z ugly, the same ones of them calling him ugly woudl say Lil Wayne looks good, its all about what you equate them too, since Nas said he look like Joe Camel, thats what yall latch him on too. if Joe Camel didnt exist how many of you would call him ugly ? not many.

    2nd. ” Jay-z needs dame dash but dame dash does not need jay-z “, the fact that Dame dash is broke and Jay Z is worth a half a billion kinda kills your argument.

    3. Some of you need to learn how to type, or atleast NOT type how you speak as i cant understand half the crap you are writing. yea im talking about you “lost the throne”

    4. Some of you are idiot, GQ is a fasion magazine, they are not writing about which rapper had the best year on the charts.

    ok,im good after that.

  • Yeah, Hov

  • Sean C.

    The article is kind of a trashy writeup. Jay’s overall theme was the rags to riches but still trying to grow and improve himself but it seems like the tone of the write diminishes the class and triumphs of his accomplishments. You don’t throw random curse words in the article when you start it off at an art exhibit. Check out my site: http://www.rapsandrings.com
