Finance guru Alvin Hall explores the business empire of rap star Jay-Z, a man who has become a brand in his own right. Ten years ago he was spurned by every record label, so he started his own. A decade on, with 20 million CD sales under his belt, he is not only president of Def Jam records but also owns a clothing line, a chain of clubs, his own brand of vodka, and a share in a professional basketball team.
