September 11, 2001 was intended to become a major day in the career of Jay-Z. The Brooklyn rapper planned to release his sixth studio album, The Blueprint. As Jay-Z released his album, he quickly became overshadowed by the attacks in the United States.

While The Blueprint was released on September 11, Jay-Z was in Los Angeles filming the video for "Girls, Girls, Girls." When he was in California, Jay-Z turned on the news to discover the attacks. Initially, he thought it had to be some kind of joke. But, as he continued to watch, Jay-Z realized it was serious.

Describing the look in New York City, Jay-Z said it was something out of an apocalyptic movie. Jay-Z was very helpful during the aftermath of the attacks. The rapper donated money and united with others as New Yorkers. During this time, Jay-Z provided positive words to the people, as the whole nation moved past the horrible attacks.
