1988 portrait of a then-unknown JAY-Z, still eight years away from releasing his debut album. At the time, he had a single appearance on wax to his name (High Potent’s “H.P. Gets Busy”—the Nas-mocked “Hawaiian Sophie,” where Hov makes a small cameo and appears in the video, wouldn’t even be released until the following year). Photographed by Timothy White, Los Angeles, 1988.
