Hakeem From Empire, Jay Z Son

The rumor that rapper, Jay-Z, is Hakeem from Empire‘s father, is one we want to believe yet it’s not true.  The story works and it just seems to make perfect sense.  First, there’s the fact that Bryshere Y. Gray never talks about the identity of his father.  If there’s one person with enough money to keep people’s mouth shut, it’s Shawn Carter.

The story is also believable because people no long trust Jay-Z.  The rapper’s wife, Beyonce, is responsible for that.  The rapper wife, Beyoncé is responsible for that.  In her song “Sorry” from her 2016 album, Lemonade, she advises a cheater to call “Becky with the good hair.”  The lyric led many to believe that the rapper cheated on his wife, making him less trustworthy.

Throughout Carter’s career, there have been rumors that he’s fathered multiple children.  The Brooklyn native has always denied these reports and his fans have trusted him.  Beyoncé’s “Sorry” lyrics changed how much we can trust the rapper’s word.

Bryshere Y. Gray was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA, a city where Jay-Z has spent a substantial amount of time.  In the 1990s, Carter built Roc-A-Fella Records and he had multiple artists from Philadelphia.  Beanie Sigel, Freeway and the Young Gunz were some of his recording artists from Philadelphia.  Despite these facts, the rapper is not Hakeem from Empire‘s father.
