No one has shaped music and the business surrounding music in the past, say, 50 years quite like the New York City-born rapper, Jay Z.

The musician and lyricist has created many hits as well as brought many new faces to popular songs. He has more businesses than one can count and—perhaps we’ve buried the lead here—he’s husband to the Queen, herself: Beyonce.

But while we could go on and on about the recent Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, instead, here, we’ll just dive into his Top 15 songs. They’re all bangers, as the kids say, so turn up your stereo.
