Jay-Z is easily one of the greatest rappers alive, but over the last decade and a half, he has managed to stay out of the limelight almost completely, with a few rare exceptions. While he’s not in the headlines that often, the rapper is married to Beyonce Knowles, who might be one of the most visible stars.
