    One of the few who really could earn an EGOT off pure talent in all the four areas. Not taking away from anyone else, but some get Grammy's for comedy for example. Jamie Foxx can act, do comedy, sing, compose/write/sing music, etc. The guy is just incredibly talented.

    The greatest thing about Jamie is that he was determined to become successful. Everything from changing his name so he can get on stage to building a studio and throwing parties so he can get on artists songs. He made a lot of moves that a lot of people wouldn't think of. Respect
