  The "Big Homie" of JAY-Z fan pages. No One Does It Better. This is [not] HOV.

"I confess, God in the flesh, live among the serpents, turn arenas into churches… I'm like Michael, recycle, these are not 16s, these are verses from the Bible… Tell that preacher he's a preacher, I'm a motherfuckin' prophet!" JAY-Z, photographed performing during day two of England's "V Festival" at Hylands Park in Chelmsford on August 20. He performed to over 150,000 fans over the two nights of the festival. #jayz @vfestival

"Jeff Koons balloons, I just wanna blow up…" JAY-Z, photographed closing day two of England's "V Festival" at Hylands Park in Chelmsford by Jim Dyson on August 20. His simplistic stage set-up featured a giant inflatable "Balloon Dog" sculpture by Jeff Koons. "Jeff worked with JAY-Z and his team in creating the 40-foot-tall inflatable 'Balloon Dog' piece for JAY-Z's festival dates," a representative for Koons told "artnet News" over the weekend. "Jeff has always been a fan." It is still unknown whether the piece is a enlarged replica or an original.

The stage design's minimalist aesthetic continues the theme of "4:44," which of course featured only the album title and the phrase "THIS IS HIS 13TH STUDIO ALBUM" on a background of matte orange creamsicle. Fittingly, orange is the color of the sculpture that cemented Koons' art world glory: in 2013 his work "Balloon Dog (Orange)" sold for $58.4 million at auction, setting a record for commanding the highest price for work by a living artist.
In the Summer of 2014 Hov and Koons both participated in "The Water Project," which had them designing artwork to cover a water tank in the New York City skyline. The project aimed to involve the city's citizens in conversation on public art, and to promote a deeper message about the high quality of New York City's water and how the city should play a "role as a world leader setting new standards for sustainability." #jayz @jeffkoons @vfestival

"They come out next year, but these my last year sweats..." JAY-Z was photographed as he left John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City on Monday. He is wearing an Alexander Wang beanie, checkerboard jacket and pants, Puma Suede sneakers, and vintage Cartier frames. After a four-day stay in London he is now heading back to his family in Los Angeles. #jayz

Hov and his entourage took one last flight around the city before leaving London on Monday. The luxury $23 million Sikorsky is the largest commercial helicopter available, and has an on-board kitchenette and bathroom facilities. Hov is wearing an Alexander Wang beanie, and a "Type-01" distressed sweatshirt and "Betar" track pants by Ovadia & Sons. #jayz @thebullitts #ogjuan #tyty @rocnation @ovadiaandsons

Jaÿ-Z, photographed on the roof of the original Roc-A-Fella Records offices on John Street in Lower Manhattan, by Atsuko Tanaka on March 5, 1996. Tanaka was commissioned to shoot Cashmere Brown ahead of the release of his classic debut "Reasonable Doubt." In early-'96 Jaÿ, Dame Dash, and Kareem "Biggs" Burke had rented the small office space in a low-rent part of Lower Manhattan. Adjacent to the financial district, this section was one of the dreariest parts of the busiest city in the world. "I don't mind being down here in this area, because this is just a starting point for us," Jaÿ asserted in an interview when asked why they would even consider putting themselves in this gloomy, God-forsaken part of town. "I like being away from everybody right now, because I can get all my stuff together, then I can move uptown with all those other niggas when everything's straight. No sense in spending a whole lot of money on office space and moving employees round if your product isn't bringing in any money yet—that's a mistake executives make. I used my money to get this label off the ground and that was the right decision, ya know?" #jayz #rocafella #1996 #atsukotanaka

Upon arrival Hov borrowed bulletproof vehicles from the British Army to transport him and his entourage from the $23 million Sikorsky S-92 helicopter they flew in from London on to his nearby five private off-site dressing rooms. He also had the festival hosts organize 30 security guards to protect him and his entourage. #jayz @vfestival @gymothy

Jay-Z, photographed performing during his headlining set at the "Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival" in Manchester, Tennessee by Danny Clinch on June 12, 2010. That night Hov performed a blazing 90-minute set to over 75,000 people. Well into the set, after performing numerous tracks about himself and his various nicknames, he made a redundant introduction: "Some people may know me, some people may not. My name is Jay-Z." Later he singled out a girl in the audience because it was her birthday, and sang "Happy Birthday" to her on stage. Earlier Stevie Wonder had delivered a stellar performance, and stayed side of stage for Jay’s set. "Wait till I tell my mama that Stevie Wonder stuck around for my set!" an ecstatic Hov told the crowd. The festival's review in "SPIN" magazine crowned him "King of Bonnaroo" and declared that "every major worldwide music festival should probably keep him on retainer as headliner." #jayz #bonnaroo @dannybones64 #2010
