I am going to introduce Jay-Z, my favorite rapper, who also known as Shawn Carter. I am going to tell you more about him, his achievement and the issue he cares about.

Since then, he had to support himself. He used to be a hustler in order to make money to earn his living. A hustler is a person who tries to trick people into giving him money.
