Fall-ternative: Rap 

If tales of flossing money, women, Bentleys, hustling street lore and the bling-bling lifestyle is your thing, then mark your calendar for Sept. 26 at The Ritz in Raleigh. That's when Jay-Z and his Roc-A-Fella cohorts will be bringing his much-anticipated Blueprint Tour to Raleigh to put it down at The Ritz. Jay-Z proteges Beanie Sigel and Memphis Bleek will also be along for the ride with Jigga, who'll probably have a few surprise guests as well. Few in the rap game can spit flows or spin stylish, infectious tales like Jay-Z. The Brooklyn-born rapper, who's been a hot item since releasing his now-classic debut CD, Reasonable Doubt, is never at a loss for words--on his or any other rapper's CD that he appears on. Jigga has also established himself as a ghostwriter, penning a slew ofs hits for rap artists such as Foxy Brown and Dr. Dre, among others. So get ready, because the Jigga-Man will be live and spitting his futuristic flows in Raleigh. Holla!
