Music mogul JAY-Z has one of the most legendary-looking birthday cakes on deck. New footage has surfaced of Young Hov's pre-born day edible works of art.
Roc Nation affiliate Vegas Jones went to social media this weekend to show off Jigga's tribute cake which has legendary images including last summer's 4:44 and a slew of his albums on it.

A few days ago, 4:44 producer No I.D. recalled talking to JAY about landing a grip of Grammy Awards nominations.
"I spoke with him briefly. We did the "Wow. Wow. Wow," you know? He always has a streak of confidence that shines through: "I knew we had something great. Let's look at it in a year, two years, 10 years - that's the test of time." More than anything, we've both been in the industry so long, so as exciting as it is, it's also not like a kid with a new toy. It's more like, we worked really hard to achieve what's going on. There's a sense of joy for other reasons. I really enjoy the fact that that album meant a lot to him as a person and not just the music industry. We didn't chase any of the standard things that you do to achieve success. It's all about the artist. For him to be fulfilled as a human, not just about numbers or stats or money - he has enough of that - it was just fulfilling." (New York Times)
I.D. also weighed-in on why JAY has continued to put himself atop the rap food chain.
"Legacy, legacy, legacy. He's pushing the envelope. These limitations that he's so-called breaking, I never accepted them anyway. Of course it's great for his legacy. Deeper than that, it's great for the art of hip-hop, music in general. We don't have to discard people. Wine gets better with time. So does art. This just shows what an artist he is." (New York Times)
Earlier this week, JAY managed to snag nearly 10 nominations in key Grammy categories.
