According to Billboard, the new fan favorite â€œBook Of Hovâ€ exhibit at the Brooklyn Public Library will be sticking around. The exhibit opened earlier this month and had some pretty notable guests. Jay-Z himself was in attendance alongside Beyonce and Blue Ivy. Now interested fans have months to visit the free exhibit and look through pieces of the rapperâ€™s legendary career. Even for those that canâ€™t make it to Brooklyn, there are opportunities. The libraryâ€™s website has an interactive addition to the exhibit that allows fans to scroll through all the available material online. It also features much of the information available at the in-person exhibit available for fans to digest online.
While many fans were thrilled about the new exhibit, one person who isnâ€™t a big fan of it is Joe Budden. He said in a recent episode of The Joe Budden Podcast that he isnâ€™t interested in the exhibit. Even as his co-hosts attempted to change his mind he stuck to his guns. He even claimed at one point that Jay-Z himself didnâ€™t seem like he wanted to be there during the exhibits opening night.
Jay-Z Exhibit Isnâ€™t Going Anywhere
Even though Jay-Z hasnâ€™t released much music as of late, it hasnâ€™t slowed down his accomplishments. Earlier this month he earned his 10th double platinum album. His 2009 album The Blueprint 3 officially hit the milestone making him the first rapper to achieve it. Drake and Eminem are the only other rappers to even approach the landmark achievement. That announcement came just a few days after the 10th anniversary of his 2013 effort Magna Cartaâ€¦ Holy Grail. His 12th album debuted at number 1 on the Billboard 200 and scored a top 5 hit with Holy Grail featuring Justin Timberlake.
Jay-Z also scored himself an Emmy nomination earlier this month. He was nominated for directing this yearâ€™s Super Bowl Halftime Show which notably starred Rihana. The previous yearâ€™s Halftime show also scored an Emmy nomination, which it would go on to win. Do you agree with Joe Buddenâ€™s take on the Brooklyn Public Libraryâ€™s Jay-Z exhibit?
