The Rolling Stones still tour. The difference is they don't have to, they're just greedy. Hopefully Jay-Z will get to a place where he's financially solvent and has the freedom not to tour.

Pay back live nation, Jay. Pay them back.

New album, new babies, tour of festivals and the exploitation/documentary of Trayvon Martin?
Whew, looks like Jay has a busy year of tap dancing ahead of him.

There is nothing wrong with touring but these aren't even his tours. He's sharing the stage with other artist and probably not even headlining.

This is why bragging about being a boss doesn't work. Wonder why I don't see Birdman out here getting his roll on.. or Master P making'em say Uhhhh Na Na na na?

10:04 and 10:07 know what time it is; He seems like he owes money and as 10:00 said it doesn't seem like he has the power to say "no." And you're all correct: You never see a real "boss" out front. There's a difference between rapping about being a businessman and being an actual businessman. I hope he takes some classes.

@10:10 Jay is too egotistical to take classes to better his skills. I read somewhere that he dropped out of high school because he thought he could do better, like it was a waste of his time.

Jay was NEVER a businessman, he was a hustler that came up, big difference. Trump, as big of a clown he is, is an actual businessman. Re: him taking classes, not gonna happen. Jay is too arrogant. I bet his moves though are what inspired Swizz Beatz to take classes at Harvard. He knew the real deal on his homey.

When I said he was in a financial mess, in one of the previous posts, someone came at me because I mentioned his partnership with Live Nation being over. I'll reiterate it, his PARTNERSHIP with Live Nation is over. What they have now is employer-employee relationship.

Yawn, I'm glad he's still working since 30+% of Americans aren't! Congratulations to them!!

Exposure = Album coming out = can't wait!

Payback for arrogance is a bi&ch, hoe he has learned some lessons from his behavior.

Sidebar - anyone can take classes @ Harvard - day, nite, online, etc. just have to pay the moola.

Hahaa I knew that 150 million dollar deal which is expiring in 2018 was gonna get fulfilled. He's gonna have a busy summer and yesss he's an employee honoring his employers wishes 11:11 lmfao I am enjoying this! I remember this lames credit report got leaked and he owed a cable bill and Amex balance was through the damn roof, broke back then and broke now. Stop getting in these deals looking for a payday that can take u out the music business jay, u are forever a slave! And u wonder why Tina turner ran away from her slave masters. Look at al jerreau, B.B. king, James brown, all of them performed until their dying day, and so will u! Take a business course so u can learn how to outsmart them, of course thosexwith degrees around u aren't going to teach u nothing, then they'll be unemployed! Get smart, FOOL!

@12:58 prince and Michael jackson, they all perform until they die. Ain't no telling what's in those contracts. Jayz was excited to tell the terms of that 2008 contract, tight lipped on this 2017 contract tho. It's clearly nothing to brag about

As if y'all dont work the cubicles and walmart lines till you die. I dont understand?

According to Live Nation, “They have a long-standing touring relationship with Jay, which is lucrative. It is believed Live Nation wants it to continue for many years.”

Translation: expect to see this coon performing until he's 85, so much for retirement *kanye shrug*

"Be cool, stay in school" sing it with me y'all

Chrissy Snow said...

Trump isn't much different than Jay, he's just better at covering up his messiness.
@1:07 So what? I bet you we regular folks sleep a lot better than your camel faced boss.

4:53 it tastes like Bey's bad breath mix with her old lace front.

I thought he was retired at some point? Lol.

1:36 got me rolling with that translation! That is SO true.

Damn while I'm sure performers never get tired of the applause. I thought the point of earning wealth was to be able to choose your own destiny. With two more children coming seems like he would want to chill out. If he were really well off. Jay z is damn near in his mid 50s (why they keep lying about his age is weird) who wasn't to b doing all that touring. Janet don't want to and neither does jay but debts need to be paid. I guess and least jay just gets to stand in one place lol. One of the reasons why hip hop concerts have never interested me.

11:49 peeped the real unemployment rate. Yep, it's said to be even higher than 30%. Don't believe the hype. The economy is floundering and no one with sense is buying concert tickets. Put the money under your mattress.

Jay is still relatively young - who retires at his age? Are you retiring? Retirement age is 65/70 and yes he will be working in the music industry (his career choice) - he has a family.

Interesting lineup...

I personally don't see him getting paid for this...at all Seems more like "going to work" another day at the office taking orders and what nots...

What is more interesting is his latest fake pregnancy stunt..its so bad that B just took the baby bump suit off and took pictures than posted them...real strange..just to get people talking?

One minute she looks like this :
