Hova All Ova the World: The Blueprint

H to the Izz-o, V to the Izz-A! That’s the anthem today y’all, as we celebrate 15 years since the release of The Blueprint, the sixth studio album of the one and only HOV, Jay Z. Ladies and gentlemen, let's put our hands together for this dynasty. Although now married to Beyonce, back then, Jay Z expressed his love for girls, girls, girls around the world. Part of the beauty in different cultures, of course, is the delicious traditional cuisine that comes along with it. In the words of Jay Z:



That's fried chicken, curry chicken..

Arroz con pollo, French fries and crepe

An appetite for destruction but I scrape the plate
