Big egos

Jay-Z: The brilliance of Jay-Z is that he shows rather than tells. When Jay announced his short-lived retirement in 2003, he put on one of the biggest rap concerts to date, the "Fade to Black" show at Madison Square Garden. Naturally, "Let's get ready to rumble" announcer Michael Buffer introduced him as a Jay-Z jersey rose to the rafters. Kanye: With someone as outspoken as West, this is self-evident. But it's telling that Beyonce went to Kanye, and not her husband, for a guest verse on the remix to her song, "Ego." On it, West says, "My ego is my imaginary friend." BFFs!
