Jay-Z turned up on English television program, Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, rocking a full ‘Geek Chic’ look. Undoubtedly an all-round hip-hop and business innovator and owner of his own label, his style icon status has been greatly overrated.

Jay’s true gift has always been bringing style to the street, but is never truly ahead of the curve which is why it works. But Geek Chic? Is Jay now taking style cues from back-packers and hipster rock bands?

He appeared on the program in beige jacket, ‘Globe-trotter’ scarf tied into the loop of his jeans and, of course, huge goofy prescription lenses. But with quotes like “home was like the cliché of rough…when I was nine I saw someone shot for the first time” and “my favourite is heartfelt music… I listen to Coldplay, 50 Cent, Kanye West,” he definitely has this interview thing down!
