Having rocked Glastonbury last year, is Jay ready to become the go-to MC for large scale events? It could be a better career move than say, being CEO of a record label.
The fact that Jigga want’s to be a “rock star” is hardly news to anyone who has watched him jump from height to height over his career. It’s been a decade since he was much concerned with being the world greatest rapper. And his foray as the CEO MC seems to have slowed with the rest of the global economy.
