Jay Z Making Moves with Barneys


Insiders say Jay Z and luxury retailer Barneys are partnering up for a big campaign...

From Women's Wear Daily 
BARNEYS BUZZ: Could Barneys New York’s next major move involve Jay Z? The luxury retailer is said to have held secret talks with the artist about a possible future collaboration, perhaps even one tied to the store’s upcoming holiday campaign.
Executives at Barneys could not be reached for comment, but the store has increasingly been amping up its holiday extravaganzas, notably with Lady Gaga in 2011 and the Walt Disney Co. last year.

Where's the lame anon who posts that lame shit on every Jay Z thread? Y'all know the one. Anyhoo, him and the wife are staying quite busy I see. I'm tired of the two of them, but even I have to admit that Barney's is a good look. The Carter's love hobknobbing with the rich society types.

Bey is NOT scrapping her album. She's trying to secure a "jay-z samsung deal" with ANYONE. She knows that just like him her sales are not going to meet expectations. There is a serious competition going on in their own home, so she feels as if she has to one-up jay.

What’s the clothing line going to be? The Lawn Jockey swag? The “Jocko Roc” Style coming your way…

This is the product he will be selling: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/d/da/Lawn_jockey.jpg/170px-Lawn_jockey.jpg

Hence, this Jocko Roc style deal (love the old school code) Can ya'll imagine what B is saying..

"That low-down shemale loving fag, hating and on me again only if they knew how many times I caught him wearing my clothes, that's ok I"ll just cut his daughter's face out the photo again not a problem J"

Hey Barney's and Jay-z the damn meeting couldn't be that much of a secret if we are hearing about it on the blogs...ASSHOLE!!!! Ya'll need to get better people around you that know how to keep their f-ckin mouths shut if they want to keep their jobs!!!

Good for him! Say what you want about him, but he is one dude who realizes that the rap thing ain't going to pay the bills forever. Diversifying that portofolio is the way to go. I wish more of us realized it.

Spot on 11:19 with this guy.
No competition in Carter household - Lately, B has done what she has done because of Jay Z - good and bad.

Ha! Not impressed you wanna call someone a sell out well he is the POSTER CHILD!

exactly. money CANNOT be the motive anymore. not saying he's stupid but his behavior is VERY suspect.

@11:51Am... sounds like someone doesn't have the means to diversify. IJS

Jay Z makes those power moves!! For a young man who went from thuggin' and selling drugs, to being as sucessful as he is, I gotta admire his ambition.
If more black men were like Jay, maybe fewer of them would be doing time in all the jails and penitentiaries they keep getting sentenced to!

@11:19am i was thinking the same thing. a business man sits behind a BIG desk making BIG deals....not in the studio making albums and going on tour.

That's not what bothered me it's folks sitting high on their e-pedestal casting judgement and issuing directives to folks you don't know! You wish more folks were aware of diversifying but what are you doing to make that wish come true...it's a case of don't talk about it be about it...IJS

Successful... What is SUCCESS in Ameri&&&a?

Say what you may about Jay Z/Beyonce Carter, they are truly about their business and making big moves to better the culture. Beyonce I believe will do a deal simuliar to Jay's deal with samsung. Maybe she'll do a apple deal even better than samsung. Go arter's set that ground.

Damn, somebody is extorting some serious cash from you. You and your wife could not talk an entire year off to raise your child. smh. They owe somebody major coins, but everytime somebody spills the real tea on them that person is force to make a retraction because if two people are truly billionaires(millionaires) they don't have to work that hard to keep it.

12:20 not every blackman wants to give blowjobs to white men to get ahead, you really don't believe its all ambition do you? Listen to Jay talk, he sounds just as dumb and illuterate as Beyonce, this is the image white people give us to worship. And Jay still raps about murder, hoes, and "flooding the streets with drugs outta spite", the very same thing that black men in urban areas are getting a harsher sentence for. You're a blind fan.

He's been looking strange in all his current photos. A clone perhaps? *signs off intertubz *

Tippie Toes said...

He's getting old and he's always been misfortunate looking!

Blue looks just like him! I know Bey didn't carry that baby!

Most Americans can't afford Barneys, they must be having financial difficulties. Just remember JayZ slaves can't own property. Do good by your masters.

Where in the hell is there a Barney's other than in New York. This f*%ker here. They must not have enough money. You don't see them flaunt it so not sure why they need to keep making money. Trying to set themselves up to be The Rockefellers, I guess.

Change the name of this blog to Rhymes With Bey&J.

If yall can't figure out why Jay and his wife get so many gigs, then I feel sorry for you. All of this has nothing to do with being top artist or having business acumen but everything to do with being an Uncle Tom, Satan worshiping, sell out puppet. Aren't they a little too old to rep something like this, when we all know new fresh faces are used all the time to push product. There is more here than meets the (third) eye.

Smh this dude needs to sit down and take a break, oh well see what happens when you serve Satan you never sleep smh.

U dont have to sell ur soul to be a bizness man ... Jus start ur own doin somethn u like to do wtf its simple .. Jack

Hey Jack, if it's so simple, why are you not a trademark and known worldwide? Such silly people come to the internet. JZ is more blog ads. than anything else. His following is definitely elementary school and ghetto! He is supposedly in talks, a contract has not been signed for anything. Save your congrats for the closing. ijs
