New York Public Library Posts Photo from 1939 with Jay-Z Look-Alike

Jim McIsaac/Getty Images(NEW YORK) --  A photo from 1939 that was posted to the New York Public Library's Tumblr blog on Friday bears the image of a man who many say looks eerily like rapper Jay-z.

A spokeswoman for the library told the New York Times that the picture is "100 percent ... legitimate." The photograph, titled "Harlem Loiterers," was first posted on the Facebook page for the New York Public Library's Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture on Tuesday.

According to the New York Times, the incident is not the first for the library. In 2011, someone noticed a prison photo that bears similar appearances to both Brad Pit and Mark Wahlberg.
