There are rappers, superstar rappers than there is Jay-Z. He is truly in a class of his own. He is a rapper, a businessman, professional basketball team owner, husband of “the hottest chick in the game”, and to top it all off Mr. Hova is now the most popular artist at SeatGeek.

According to our site, more people are searching for Jay-Z tickets than for rock legends: Elton John, Rod Stewart, Guns N Roses, Sting, and Paul Simon. Mr. Carter has also beat fellow rapper Kanye West, country singer Taylor Swift, and pop singer Celine Dion.

As if taking over SeatGeek was not enough, Jay-Z recently announced that he will be the opening act for the Barclay Center. The Brooklyn native has not announced the exact dates for the concert, but he expects the concert to take place sometime in the fall of 2012. The Barclay Center-currently under construction-is the future home of the Brooklyn Nets.
