Jay-Z exhibit 'The Book of Hov' opens at the Brooklyn Public Library


Good morning. I'm A Martínez. The blueprint for today's hip-hop just got his own exhibit at the Brooklyn Public Library. "The Book Of Hov" exhibit honors Jay-Z with three installations, iconic outfits and original recording masters, along with other memorabilia. Thirteen limited edition library cards are also making their debut, all donning a Jay-Z album cover. The exhibit is fully paid for by Jay-Z's Roc Nation because money ain't a thang (ph). "The Book Of Hov" is open now, so change clothes and go. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
