Jay-Z Takes Over Hot 97! [VIDEO]

It's December 4! For many hip hop fans that means it is the birthday of Shawn Carter known to many as Jay-Z.

If you have been a fan of hip hop for the past 20 years and living in New York City, you would see that Hov has been a big part of the culture and Hot 97 for a long time now both good and bad.

Remember when he came up to the station and discussed his reaction to Nas' diss track "Ether?" How about the time he debuted his single "D.O.A. (Death Of Autotune)" for the people.

Never forget the classic "Grammy freestyle" and other freestyles which are etched in history at this station.

On his birthday, there's nothing better than to celebrate his impact on the culture while reliving some of his best moments at Hot 97.
