He knows he can control it, and doesn’t want it any other way. He also showed that he likes improvement. He focused on improving the music industry before promoting the rapper because he knew that without the improvement the rappers wouldn’t sell well. He also seems more confident and open to try things. He became a leading entrepreneur and changed the ways rappers dressed. He knew what he wanted and he went there. 6. In your opinion, does Jay-Z have a sense of his self-concept (Chapter 3) and what do you think influenced it?Jay-Z had a good sense of his self-concept. He kept a positive attitude about himself and knew himself even if others viewed him differently. I believe what influenced it had to do with his past and his future. He went from being the drug dealer in the projects to a successful business man. I think that his mother getting him the boom box gave him a sense of who he truly wanted to be. I also think that setting goals made him think more of his self-concept and raised his self-esteem when he achieved these goals. I also believe that he probably wanted to settle down. He did this by marrying Beyonce who is also another very successful person in the music industry. |
