An old photograph from 1930’s Harlem has popped up on the web and is making the viral rounds due to its subject: a man who looks eerily similar to rapper Jay-Z. Employees at the Schomburg Center are hoping someone can come forward with knowledge of who the man is.

There’s been no official link between Jay and the unidentified man, but the resemblance is insane. Check it out:
