*** (out of 4) During the middle of Jay-Z's verse on "3 Kings" last year, he had a bar where he just sneered, sniffed, sniveled. That's all it was: "King H-O, y'all should know by now/ and if you don't, uh-- *sniff*. " It was the best part of the song, and today's "Open Letter" embodies that line, only in an entire song. It's both a direct response to the recent controversies surrounding Hov (the illegal-but-actually-legal vacation to Cuba, people clowning on his share of the Nets, his friendship with Obama)

Dear Justin, Can we call you Justin? We may not be on a first-name basis just yet, but you've always made us feel so at ease that we just can't help but ... OK, Justin it is. Anyway, we've been meaning to bring this up for a while, but we thought you might figure it out on your own. It's OK, because we know you can't read our minds, even though we're pretty sure you can read our hearts. At this point, you're probably wondering a) Whether we can see into your bedroom and b)

Dear Open Letter Writer, I've been seeing a lot of you lately - on Facebook, in newspaper columns and even in spoken conversations. This banal form in which you choose to vent is not becoming - but has become - outdated, tiring and just plain unfunny. I'm also trying to save you time.

A preferred design is expected to be presented early this year.

Jay-Z has been on top for so long that sometimes it's hard to remember where he began. The rapper, who grew up in New York's Marcy projects, started from the bottom and now he's chilling with the President. Some people say the Jigga Man has lost touch - it can be hard to see the people when your throne (with Kanye as sidekick) is so tall - but he certainly has built himself up to an impressive degree. Upon the release of his 12th studio album, “Magna Carta Holy Grail,” we decided to rank his assets of influence.
