Rappers often pay homage to their hometowns, but Jay-Z dropped the name of his actual former address in the 2009 song Empire State of Mind: 560 State Street. The superstar (and husband to Beyoncé) is proud of his Brooklyn roots, and now you can own an apartment in the same building for $1.4 million, reports StreetEasy. The 1,205-square-foot Boerum Hill duplex features locally sourced wood and slate countertops from New York state. There are two bedrooms and 1.5 baths as well as south-facing windows that overlook a large courtyard. Other highlights include ten-foot ceilings and bright red cabinetry in the kitchen, where, as the song goes, you might catch Jay-Z whipping pastries.
