Jay-Z, Time Traveler? Man In Vintage Photo Bears Resemblance To Rapper

A vintage photo posted to Reddit has many wondering if Jay-Z has added time traveling to his hobbies.

The image was taken in Harlem in 1939 by Sid Grossman and is part of the New York Public Library's Schomburg Center's collection. It depicts a man who, in addition to baring a facial resemblance to Jay-Z, also shares in the rapper's trademark swagger. Those similarities were enough for pretty much all of the internet to run with the story. Take a look below.
