Jay-Z's Nets Jersey

Jay-Z's Nets jersey — emblazoned with "Carter" on the back — is the perfect final addition to our time capsule. It's the embodiment of hip hop's rags-to-riches story and unlimited potential. Hov went from Marcy to Madison Square to his own team. By the time this capsule is finally pried open, we can only imagine how far hip hop will have come. Sky's the limit.
