Harlem, New York (Photo taken by Sid Grossman courtesy of the New York Public Library)
is a proud son of Brooklyn but an old photo featuring some well-dressed men has many wondering if he had a distant relative in another part of New York City.
This week, a black and white photo dating back to Harlem in 1939 surfaced online via the Schomburg Center’s Tumblr page. in honor of its Research in Black Culture exhibit with a caption asking if the man in picture remind you of anyone. The comments on the page were overwhelmingly pro Jay-Z.
While there’s no official connection between Mr. Carter and the unnamed man, it does make for interesting debate.
