This is no photoshop prank. The source of the photo is highly legit. The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, New York Public Library has published a photo from 1939 made in Harlem. They published the photo taken by Sid Grossman and published it on their Facebook page.
The researchers ask via Facebook if anybody can identify the man in the picture. Some of course already have other explanations like Jay-Z is a vampire and lived already in 1939. So far nobody could identify the man, but given the viral power of this photo it might be possible to reach someone that knows this man that looks like Jay-Z.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
