Progress Report: Jay-Z's style is inconsistent. It's hit-and-miss, but even the "hits" aren't as good as they could be. His black-and-white attire looks good sometimes-like when he opts to accessorized a leather paneled coat with gold, Timbs, and a Don C. snapback.

Needs Improvement: Jay-Z needs to buy some new shorts. The leaf-print ones were cool, but the plaid ones he wore to Cuba need to go. Coordinating them with a fedora and turquoise polo was a poor choice too, and while Nike high tops are cool, they don't mesh with the whole "I'm on vacation" vibe.

Grade: D
