Jay-Z ft. Alicia Keys | Empire State of Mind Music Video

I can attest that Jay-Z's Empire State of Mind has captivated the New York audience. In fact judging by its warm reception I will venture to say that it is not long before this track joins the ranks of God Bless America and the National Anthem - played at every sporting event somewhere between the third and fourth inning, 2nd and 3rd period and at the half. In fact it would not surprise me if more people knew the lyrics to the track then God Bless America. But I guess that's what Jay does - a living, breathing, walking hit machine. The 39 year old rapper, songwriter, MC, record executive, producer, entrepreneur, fashion designer, media mogul and philanthropist's 11th album reached #1 on the Billboards surpassing Elvis Presley as the solo artist with the most chart-toppers in US chart history.

Hats off to you Mr. Carter, hats off to you.
