Was Jay-Z alive in 1933?

A photo released by the New York Public Library's Schomburg Center has been circulating around the internet, making waves wherever it lands. Originally discovered by Buzzfeed, the black and white photo from 1933 shows a man sitting on a gate in Harlem, New York. The man bears great resemblance to iconic rapper Jay-Z, even exuding the same sense of swagger, suited up and sporting a newsboy hat.
