New York Magazine gives Jay-Z the cover of their special “100 Years of Pop Music in New York” issue via a choice throwback portrait. In conjunction with the issue, they’ve added their Encyclopedia of New York Pop Music to their site. I haven’t had a chance to dig through that yet, but I did read Jody Rosen’s essay on the history of popular music in New York City last night and it was pretty great.

You should also check out their spread of 26 Musicians Who Shaped New York City, which incluses portraits of Nas, Afrika Bambaataa, 50 Cent, Mary J. Blige and Grandmaster flash.
