Jay-Z, photographed performing ‘Izzo (H.O.V.A.)’ on the stage outside the MTV Video Music Awards on September 8, 2001. On his shoulder you can see he has stitched an “Aaliyah” badge onto his jersey. Just two weeks earlier he had tragically lost his close friend in a plane crash.

DID YOU KNOW: Aaliyah’s favorite basketball team was the Chicago Bulls. I wonder if Jay-Z picked this BULLS jersey on purpose when paying tribute?

I may not have spoke to all of you before but I know that I’ve been following many of you since I started this blog and I love seeing you all on my dash with your perfect edits and gifs and posts and hilarious text posts so I just want thank you all for making my 2 years on this site so enjoyable and fulfilling. I hope the new year treats you well and I wish you guys all the happiness not only in 2015 but beyoncé beyond that. Sorry if I missed anyone and the same goes to all my beautiful followers.

Heres to another 12 months of beyoncéness.

Sorry for the delay but I’ve been really busy this month and I wanted to post this before I resume college in less than a week. I know y’all would love it regardless on when I post it because….

Anyway, 2015 was a good year for me both on and off tumblr. I’m consistently on the Dean’s List at my college & my skin and bank account are looking REAL nice :D Plus, this blog hit 15,000 followers! Like WHAT?!?!?!?!? Thank you ALL for making my tumblr experience better and for following me :-* Since I’m so late and already did one for my Bey blog, @jayonceiv, I’m going to include some of the Bey blogs who are absolutely fantastic in this one {and some might follow back so y’all can gain some amazing friends} ~Also will include those from my B&W model blog, @lavishmodels #i’m being extra idc 

Message me if you’re not on this list. Last year was so weird with my following count. I kept unfollowing people and refollowing new people and it was so confusing. Also, ignore my sign. If I made the 15K follow forever words any bigger, they would’ve taken over either Bey or Squirtle and that’s not happening. Anyway, let’s go!

Bolded are my ABSOLUTE favorites! {I wasn’t going to bold anyone, but I know my friend @kylos wants to be bolded, so yeah :D ~i also italicized you shhhhh~) *I won’t bold a lot of people because *Adele voice* there’s too muuuucccccchhh, but I love all of these blogs :D

–>Random but I love that it goes @beyonce to @beyoncebeytwice lmao<–

Let me get my Jigga on and drop a braggadocio post right quick. Khaled just shouted out “AintNoJigga” in his IG Live video and said he spoke to Hov about the page while they were recording “Shining.” Much love to Khaled for spreading the word and making the link. 

I came into the game because there were no fan pages for the GOAT doing it right. I deal in FACTS when it comes to Jay Z. Men lie, women lie, numbers don’t. The aim is for this to be reflected in the page as we delve into his illustrious career. While this Tumblr will forever be the spiritual home of ANJ, Instagram has opened up the ANJ brand to a whole new audience, including those who run close to Hov. I sincerely appreciate every follower, OG or fresh. As long as y'all keep enjoying the content it’ll keep coming. And everybody pray to Jayhovah for that 13th!

JAYONCEIV FOLLOW FOREVER 2014

HAPPY NEW YEARS :-*

anonymous asked:

ANJ, what do you think of Drake's "I used to wanna be on Roc-A-Fella then I turned into Jay." line in Summer Sixteen? You think he reached that GOAT status? 🤔

Bear with yo, I’mma speak on this in depth and clear this shit up right now, HA! Firstly, you know ANJ is a Jigga Stan, but I do enjoy Drake and have no qualms listening to his pop-friendly hip hop. As Hov says, music is universal and we all have the ability to appreciate the many forms of rap. But let’s get into Drake’s latest false start: No one should compare themselves to JAY Z, least not Drake. Was it even a shot? I’m not sure. Because a rapper with reference tracks shouldn’t go anywhere near that comparison to save themselves embarrassment - and I’m hoping Drake knows that and was instead paying homage to the legend Hov. If it was a shot? I’d say I appreciate Drake is having his moment currently, and his music is catchy as fuck and serves a purpose in the game, but it is fascinating how the public have given him so much hype his ego has managed to inflate to declaring himself to be Jayhovah. Nah boy. #FACTS? Drake is worth $75 million, Hov is worth $560 million. Drake has four platinum albums, Hov has SIXTEEN. Drake has sold 5 million albums worldwide, Hov has sold 60 million. Drake is signed to Wayne, who is signed to Birdman; Hov built Roc-A-Fella Records from nothing into one of the most successful rap labels ever. OVO Sound is owned by Warner Music Group, but meanwhile Hov owns the entire Roc Nation company, including the music label, management group, and a sports management division. Drake signs his life away to a streaming service, Hov BUYS one. Drake is an ambassador for a NBA team, while Hov has actually owned a NBA team AND still owns the arena the Nets play in. AND if we’re simply talking skills, which is the most important part of any rapper, Hov out-rhymes Drake ten-fold. Hov studied his elders and perfected the rap craft, but Drake is out here just swinging at his OGs. Rappers these days seem to get a little cash, quickly forget who the GOAT is, and start speaking out they neck. EVERYBODY is influenced by JAY Z, so these rappers need to stop coming at him with this petty shit. He perfected what it means to be a successful rapper, while still showing a consistent talent as he changed to fit the rap environment. Y’all need to leave him alone with his business ventures, cause he’s on some mogul shit now trying to create a legacy for his future generations. There is room for everyone to make music and spread love, these fake beefs are worthless and not worth our time yo. Step to Hov when you can actually match him Drake, otherwise stay in your lane.

It’s that time of year again where everyone puts up their New Year/Christmas follow forever’s. Being that this is my first follow forever I  hope I did it some justice. So, to keep it short and sweet, I’m wishing you all a happy new year, may 2015 be a year of new discoveries, memories, love, laughter, inner peace, and everlasting friendships. After all 2015 is all yours. 

* the bolded are some of my faves and/or people who have continually supported me. I love you all so much. xx
