According to a report from ChristianPost.com on Monday, May 13, there is a photo online that has been causing quite the discussion concerning music mogul Jay-Z.

Of course, the picture itself is actually harmless and it should be noted that Jay-Z himself isn’t in the picture. Instead, the 1939 throwback photo has what appears to be a striking lookalike to Jay-Z.

Apparently, some sharp-witted readers spotted the photo recently while visiting a library in New York City.

The photograph shows a man, who appears to resemble Jay-Z, sitting on some railings outside a building while wearing a jacket and a cap. The discovery came from the Schomburg Center for Research In Black Culture at the New York Public Library.

The photographer for that picture is said to be Sid Grossman and the location was said to be in Harlem. No word on who the Jay-Z lookalike is, however.

Of course, upon the discovery of the picture, people have joked that Jay-Z is either ageless or simply a time-traveler.

In real life, Jay-Z very well may be welcoming another child to the world, as his wife Beyonce has hinted that she would like their daughter Blue Ivy to have a younger brother or sister soon.
