Much like Nic Cage and his 1800s counterpart, Jay-Z also has a historical look-alike, although his is from 1930s Harlem.

Jay-Z is currently trying to take over the world one business venture at a time, about to go on tour with Justin Timberlake in his suit and tie, and enjoying a happy marriage to one of the most beautiful women in the world. And judging by the photo above, he's also apparently mastered time travel.

The unidentified man on the right was shared by the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture's Facebook page, where staff postulated that it could be Hova's great-grandfather -- or just some dude that looks a whole lot like Mr. Carter.
