Jay-Z Takes My Advice

4040.JPG 

Today it was announced that, moving forward, Cristal will no longer be served in either of the two 40/40 Club locations. I think it’s pretty obvious that Jay saw my post from last week and ran with my idea. It’s common knowledge that these superstar/high power executive types steal all their ideas from the little guy and then claim all the glory.

Jay-Z Responds to Comments From Champagne Brand Director

NEW YORK, June 14 /PRNewswire/ — In response to comments made by Frederic Rouzaud, the managing director of Louis Roderer Cristal, Jay-Z and his upscale sports lounge, The 40/40 Club, have announced that they will no longer be serving Cristal Champagne and Jay-Z will further help lead the boycott against Cristal Champagne in the world of hip-hop.

Despite loyal patronage by Jay-Z, his clientele, and the entire hip-hop community, Rouzaud said in a special edition of The Economist magazine that the company observes its association with the rap world with "curiosity and serenity." Even though Jay and other rappers continually support the brand by including Cristal in their lyrics, as Jay did in his number 1 hit "Hard Knock Life," Rouzaud has labeled the name-checks as "unwelcome attention."

"It has come to my attention that the managing director of Cristal, Frederic Rouzaud views the ‘hip-hop’ culture as "unwelcome attention." I view his comments as racist and will no longer support any of his products through any of my various brands including The 40/40 Club nor in my personal life," said Jay-Z.

This move was pretty much mandatory, especially from this guy, considering the amount of this stuff he’s responsible for selling over the past 10 years. At the end of the press release it says he’s available for interviews on the subject, so I emailed the PR dude because I have some questions. For instance: How do you jack my idea and not even mention Nah Right in the press release?

I’ll let you know how that goes.

    doin big things eskay.

    glad to see jay start the just say no…..to cristal campaign.

    i still have no idea why the cristal pres would bother publicly questioning his rap buyers. his board members and share holders are kickin him now.

  3. Front Says:

    Stupidity will allows root out the weak.

  4. spanish jay Says:

    aww man, eskay is offically a internet he/ho

    some one get him a cyber tissue for his nose

  5. spanish jay Says:

    Not for nothing, when ever I hear a dumb-down “hit” about jewelry and sluts I think of Puff, Jay and J/D. I really don’t think if the 36 chambers debut today in this environment it would be a hit.

  6. skinnykennyp Says:

    Guess its bacc 2 kool aid.

  7. G-town G Says:

    Fuck that cristal bullshit man Id rather drink a fuckin 40 ounce after that bitch said that shit. Thats the same bullshit Tommy Hilfiger did and niggas immediately quit wearing tha shit. Dumb, dumb, dumb

    Thanks Jay-z thats a real move on your part and I kant forget my nigga Eskay for “puttin it out there in the open”!!!!!

    Peace my niggas its been a hell of a summer so far!

  8. eskay Says:

    >> his board members and share holders are kickin him now.

    I don’t know… No executive makes a statement like that by accident, but I have a hard time wrapping my mind around this as a strategic move. it just doesn’t make sense to alienate anybody who’s buying your product, and providing endless free advertising. Unless by doing so you’re gonna attract new customers in droves to replace those you lost. Somehow I doubt Cristal’s sales are going to explode all of a sudden with old stuffy white people, but I guess we’ll see.

  9. G-town G Says:

    To whoever that is sayin that shit:
    If 36 chambers dropped today no it would not do nearly as well. With all this commercial shit these fools are jammin shit that would be like over most ppl’s heads these days!

  10. eskay Says:

    >>Thats the same bullshit Tommy Hilfiger did and niggas immediately quit wearing tha shit. Dumb, dumb, dumb

    once again, that never happened, it’s an urban legend. I can’t believe people still think that.

  11. G-town G Says:

    So u sayin tommy hilfiger aint say that?

  12. G-town G Says:

    I dont know about yall but I dont see anybody wearing that bullshit hilfiger but we all had at least 5 of them in the mid 90’s. I wouldnt buy it now regardlesss if he said it or not it just looks kinda gay to me now

  13. G-town G Says:

    From what Ive heard the french are pretty fuckin racist anyway

  14. eskay Says:

    >>So u sayin tommy hilfiger aint say that?

    that is what I am saying

    http://www.snopes.com/racial/business/hilfiger.asp

  15. G-town G Says:

    Well shit man I guess u are rite but I still aint wearing that crap. That boy Eskay does it again!!!!

  16. T. Okes Says:

    Big ups to Jigga on makin’ that move. That Rouzad dude should seriously catch a ‘bow to the chin. How are you gonna deem increased sales & popularity as “unwelcome attention”??

    ^^So I guess that Hilfiger shit really ain’t true. *Shrug* My bad, sometimes I’m real quick to jump on the “Fuck This Racist” bandwagon…still though, like G-Town G said, I wouldn’t wear ’em clothes regardless.

  17. G-town G Says:

    And yea Liz Taylor was a racist too

  18. eskay Says:

    your fashion choices are entirely up to you, I just think it’s fucked up that dude has been labelled a racist for like 10 years for no reason.

  19. Shanti Says:

    Glad Jay made this move. I wonder how many other rappers are going to boycott Cristal.

  20. G-town G Says:

    Yea that is fucked up man but he aint do shit about it then. He should have been did a public service announcement or something shit. If someone falsely accused u of something then address it u know what I mean. That would have done alot for the company.

    Shit I bet this fool retracts his statements after the sale of cristal goes down

  21. Blue Says:

    Fuck Cristal.

  22. Shanti Says:

    Yeah that Tommy rumor REALLY fucked up his sales or maybe people just starting feeling like his shit was whack–who knows. Several years back wasn’t there a rumor about Timberland being owned by the KKK? I didn’t see folk stop rocking Tims around that time but maybe no one really believed that one.

  23. eskay Says:

    >>He should have been did a public service announcement or something shit.

    he did but nobody pays attention to shit like that. only controversy sells. thats why a tabloid can print some outrageous incorrect headline big as fuck and then print a tiny retraction on page 67 two days later that nobody will see.

  24. iLL Change Says:

    i wish i coulda tried some Cristal before dudes started to boycott it. i wonder what other clubs are gonna do

  25. G-town G Says:

    My nigga I swear I never heard that he did a announcement to say he wasnt racist. BUt hey Im black I kant read anyway, naw let me quit Im bein dumb

  26. iLL Change Says:

    >> Several years back wasn’t there a rumor about Timberland being owned by the KKK?

    what the fuck? thats the most retarded thing i ever heard. i think its fucked up how state gov’ts still let the KKK hold protest marches and shit tho.

  27. iLL Change Says:

    yo click the link in my name, they got some new shit by Royal Flush. first Mic Geronimo come back, now this? Queens nation stand up!

  28. GET Says:

    Nobody in the Hood can afford this shit anyway.

    Hey Jay what about denouncing drugs and violence, not no fucking champagne that no one in the hood can afford.

  29. G-town G Says:

    Thats a good point about guns and violence but come on now man what good what that shit do? The hood is the hood

  30. Shanti Says:

    >>Hey Jay what about denouncing drugs and violence, not no fucking champagne that no one in the hood can afford.

    Good point. I was thinking along the same lines.

  31. eskay Says:

    >>Hey Jay what about denouncing drugs and violence

    why don’t you tell your favorite rapper to do the same

    >>not no fucking champagne that no one in the hood can afford.

    the hood can’t afford alot of shit, that don’t mean they don’t buy it anyway

  32. G-town G Says:

    I heard that shit about timbaland too but that sounded false

  33. T. Okes Says:

    Yeah I remember hearing about that KKK/Timberland thing too…that one was a little harder to believe though

  34. G-town G Says:

    Eskay u got a link to that shit about hilfiger not bein racist? I would like to read that, because to me its easy to say some shit and then years later have something talkin bout it wasnt true

  35. iLL Change Says:

    yo, they got a blog over at SOHH where Z-Ro said he leavin the game after his next album drop…

  36. eskay Says:

    I posted a link 10 minutes ago, scroll up.

  37. Shanti Says:

    >>Eskay u got a link to that shit about hilfiger not bein racist? I would like to read that, because to me its easy to say some shit and then years later have something talkin bout it wasnt true

    I think he posted the link already.

  38. Shanti Says:

    http://www.snopes.com/racial/business/hilfiger.asp

    the link

  39. GET Says:

    >> why don’t you tell your favorite rapper to do the same

    This is about Jay-Z and not my favorite Rapper, Jay-Z has the most influence of any rapper in the Game so his word would help.

  40. G-town G Says:

    Im sorry guys Im not dumb. I want the ACTUAL link with him QUOTED saying this shit.

  41. nation of thugacation Says:

    ^how do you want a quote of something that never occured? check on youtube LOL

  42. Shanti Says:

    G-town you must really have a hard time believing Tommy isn’t a racist huh lol?

  43. eskay Says:

    >>This is about Jay-Z and not my favorite Rapper, Jay-Z has the most influence of any rapper in the Game so his word would help.

    why don’t you do like your name and GTFOH. the man takes a stand, as he should, but your crab ass finds something to hate on. whatever. if you don’t like him, then say he’s wack, but why you wanna start talking that righteous shit all of a sudden cuz you feel like going against the grain. wack. get a new gimmick.

  44. nation of thugacation Says:

    eskay… the same way you made a psa for cam’s biter or writer shit, maybe you should make a psa for the “guilty until proven innocent” tommy hilfiger(and ralph lauren). because ppl like me and g town g just heard that outrageous shit years ago and never heard of oprah saying the opposite.
    you should take advice from the little guy…*saying that as i drop my eyes and bow to eskay*

  45. eskay Says:

    >>how do you want a quote of something that never occured?

    uh yeah, basically.

    lmao @ check on youtube

  46. nation of thugacation Says:

    ^ you laugh but when i wasnt sure i REALLY did check

  47. nation of thugacation Says:

    smh

  48. GET Says:

    Going against the Grain, he boycotting something the average person cant afford and im suppose to jump up and down, and be happy like you dumb fuck, what is Jay denouncing Cristal suppose to do?

  49. eskay Says:

    smh

  50. eskay Says:

    GET

    you mad?

  51. nation of thugacation Says:

    who is GET’s favorite rapper… because if it aint jay than this is gold:
    >> Jay-Z has the most influence of any rapper in the Game so his word would help.

  52. nation of thugacation Says:

    oh cam’ron

  53. Shanti Says:

    Cam’ron is somebody’s favorite rapper???

  54. eskay Says:

    GET

    so it’s your opinion that the hip hop community should contine to patronize Cristal? if so then gtfoh

    >>he boycotting something the average person cant afford

    well how do you define “the average person” cuz I’ve seen niggas who I know for a FACT is on section 8 coppin Cris

    >>and im suppose to jump up and down, and be happy like you dumb fuck

    your not supposed to do shit. I didn’t even comment on what he’s doin in my post, I just posted it and said he swagger jacked me. your just one of my stans so you enjoy antagonizing me.

  55. nation of thugacation Says:

    go get ya wet wipes

  56. GET Says:

    I dont have a favorite

    And why would I be mad?

    And once again what is Jay denouncing Cristal suppose to do? But stop Other rich rappers buying it.

  57. eskay Says:

    >>And once again what is Jay denouncing Cristal suppose to do?

    it’s a matter of principal dumbass. and what do you mean what is it supposed to do? you act like Jay has no influence. loosen up the collar on your button up, it’s cuttin off the circulation to your brain homey

  58. iLL Change Says:

    wheres D. Billz up in this bitch? i know he with me on all these old-skool MC’s comin back with fire. Mic G, Royal Flush, maybe O.C. next ?

    the new Mic & Flush tracks are fire tho, check those out if u didnt yet

  59. nation of thugacation Says:

    so wait, you mean to tell me, all these years, after all these bottles, jay-z wasnt even on the payroll… gtfoh… when they came out with that Top 10 brands that were mentioned in the music industry… no one was getting a check for that shit? damn, all this time jay coulda said champagne rather than that company, woulda been the same to jay, but now each time we see yellow bottles we associate that to jay’s baller status…

    “follow my moves, I’m not a role model, a bad influence, got the world drinkin gold bottles”

  60. GET Says:

    >> it’s a matter of principal dumbass. and what do you mean what is it supposed to do? you act like Jay has no influence.

    I said early he has the most influence in the game that why he should use his power against shit that affect the hood. Not superficial shit.

  61. Small Eyez Says:

    power move.

    its STILL bigger than Hip Hop.

  62. G-town G Says:

    Nah I just wanna know yall. And if u cant quote him sayin it hen how u know he said it? Fuck it tho I wanted to know kuz Eskay seem real pissed that dude was called a racist personally I couldnt give a fuck lesss but usually me and him agree on shit so when we dont I want to find out why and what the deal is. MY BAD

  63. eskay Says:

    >>I said early he has the most influence in the game that why he should use his power against shit that affect the hood. Not superficial shit

    organizing a boycott against a company that made arguably racist comments about a community that has spent millions on it’s product is not worthwhile? niggas don’t drink champagne in the hood?

  64. G-town G Says:

    Just kuz Jay-z says stop the violence do u think its gonna happen? Hell no! This is a very fucked up world we live in

  65. eskay Says:

    nah G-town I’m not pissed or nothing..I just don’t like to see people walking around misinformed about something. like GET for example. he obviously needs some enlightenment, and that’s what I’m here for.

  66. G-town G Says:

    We appreciate u my nigga!!!!!!

  67. MadeInMilwaukee Says:

    Church!!!

  68. G-town G Says:

    Its like I read that shit on that site but I just dont know about all this internet info. Its like anybody can put some shit on the net and make it look factual. I dont trust too much shit I read online really unless it comes from here or some shit like cnn.com or something. The world is built on a bunch of lies and we can all be mis informed at times

  69. T. Okes Says:

    ^Yup

  70. Shanti Says:

    well G-town its not like it really matter anymore cause niggas ain’t rockin his shit anyway. i feel u on the whole wanting to see reliable proof that he didn’t say that shit though.

  71. B-Heezie Says:

    “For instance: How do you jack my idea and not even mention Nah Right in the press release? I’ll let you know how that goes.”…..

  72. nation of thugacation Says:

    ^bush administration feeds fake news to the media… now what do you think about cnn.com?
    trust only what your eyes see… even then, you have to trust yourself (i.e. mission impossible 3 opening scene… that was a fucking good movie)

  73. nation of thugacation Says:

    @ G-Town G

  74. G-town G Says:

    Yea u rite it dont matter anymore and black ppl dont buy the shit but it still sells just like LIz Taylor’s shit STILL sold and is in stores rite next to all the other fragrances to this day

  75. Shanti Says:

    what did Liz Taylor do/say? She said some racist shit? Isn’t that Michael Jackson’s homie?

  76. eskay Says:

    >>I dont trust too much shit I read online really unless it comes from here or some shit like cnn.com or something

    well if you trust nah right you can probably trust snopes!

    seriously though, I feel what your sayin. but that site has been around for years and it’s well known and cited often to debunk false info. but anyway, you just have to think about it to know it’s a lie. just how you said you wanted to see a quote, where is the quote of him making the racist comments? how come it wasn’t reported by any major news outlet? somebody like that saying something like that would be huge, think about it.

  77. T. Okes Says:

    The truth is hard to find these days…

    Yo the funny thing is, if 99 people say something’s true, and 1 person says it’s false, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s true. Lotta people don’t realize everything goes 50-50, no matter how many cats said one thing and how many say the opposite.

    No matter what though, I don’t care if it’s cnn.com or msnbc or whatever, I’m starting to learn that you gotta take everything with a grain of salt.

  78. G-town G Says:

    Yea Im feelin that too but u gotta read between the lines. Shit I read ll news but believe half of it kuz shit I know these fools lyin. Hell Im in the newspaper rite now about some bullshit that happened in my classroom that I had nothing to do with. The DA and lawyers are callin me everyday tryin to get info and then they turn around and put shit in the paper that I aint even say.
    Check Galvnews.com and look at the articles for Galveston ISD the last few days if you interested.

  79. nation of thugacation Says:

    g-town stands for galveston?

  80. Chi Town Kufi Smacka Says:

    i personally feel that jay hs done alot for cristal so for them to go against hip hop is like a slap in his face. More power to him on that one.

  81. G-town G Says:

    Yea thats what it stands for

  82. G-town G Says:

    Yea Eskay I aint neva even think about it like that.

  83. G-town G Says:

    Hell yea that was a slap in Jay-z face kuz they been goin hard to promote that shit. And the funny thing is they have their own liqour…. (Armadale)?

  84. eskay Says:

    “DA criticized for handling of teacher’s case”

    that story?

  85. G-town G Says:

    Yea thats it and the lady aint even do that shit!

  86. Chi Town Kufi Smacka Says:

    @G-Town
    There goes the reason all of these rappers need to stop the free promotion of products esp. if you don’t know the owner of the company.
    I mean the Nelly (

  87. G-town G Says:

    Im out this bitch tho I m bout to go get nica and fucked up kuz Im off for like the next 4 days so Ill holla at yall lata.

  88. Chi Town Kufi Smacka Says:

    wtf?
    the nelly af1 video was basically a comercial for nike i mean they had af1 boxes the shoes shown and everything and Run-DMC never got a crumb from adidas.
    Sho out to cam for getting that wet wipes money though lol

  89. blitzpro Says:

    Sorry your idea got juxed Eskay.

    I commend Jay for what he’s doing. Like it or not, how many people have followed this man after he did something first? I remember being up in Cheetah’s right after “Give It To Me” came out & EVERYONE had a bottle of Belvedere in their hand just because Jay said it. Jay realizes his influence & feels responsible for Cristal’s sales increase so for them to just shit on the culture he represents is outrageous.

    “I got the city drinking Cristal we up’d the fee/Rappers going broke trying to keep up with me”.

    Damn Es, now you got Jigga jacking your shit…First it was them AFS dudes now him..Damn B, there’s no justice there’s just us…Tell his PR dude you want your cut…You see that’s my whole point on Jay, he is a bittin’ ass dude…AWWWWWWW!!!!!!

    Everytime this situation comes up, I ALWAYS think of that Nelly video, I hear you on that shit…

  92. nation of thugacation Says:

    did wet wipes really cut a check though… like cam call them up saying: [dramatization] yo if you dont gimme dat cake, ima havta call out lysol, and you dont want dat b

  93. eskay Says:

    >>Sho out to cam for getting that wet wipes money though lol

    anybody remember when that song first dropped, there was a story going around saying that Wet Wipes stocks had gone up since the song dropped? that shit was so obvioulsy fake but do you know Asylum records has it up on their website on Cam’s artist page? I emailed the PR dept of Kimberly-Clark, the company that makes Wet Wipes, for an official statement on the rumor but they ignored me. if they woulda replied, that woulda been a funny post.

  94. eskay Says:

    >>yo if you dont gimme dat cake, ima havta call out lysol, and you dont want dat b

    lmfao

  95. nation of thugacation Says:

    eskay got so much shit up his sleeves. like behind the scenes… plus a day job, and he writes professionally… man respect its 12:20am and ur humouring our bum asses… talking about jobs, i dont wanna lose mine… gnite yall

  96. Chi Town Kufi Smacka Says:

    grrr yea that was a rumor floating and im not 100% on that one seeing that the source (my wife lol) isn’t that reliable. just looked it up on my local search engine and yea it seems to be off. my bad if i mislead, but knowing cam his hand is in the money jar somehow.

  97. eskay Says:

    *disclaimer*

    I don’t actually think Jay stole my idea. I was just being an ass.

    (although, I wouldn’t be surprised if the big NR is bookmarked on Jay’s Blackberry. you know he be trying to stay current with that Cam news on some Machiavelli shit)

  101. 911 Says:

    I think in the big scheme of things, you gotta be somewhat proud that Jay did what he did…….if you stand for nothing….you know how it goes…..I understand what whoever that was, was saying (no sublim) maybe he could speak out about some other things……..but c’mon people been talking stop the violence for years……an eternity…..MLK, Malcolm….I mean everybody favorite rapper or rappers talk about guns and crack like they just got invented……Eskay start the damn mag already….and oh yeah any goings on around here I want in…..1

  103. hovadagod Says:

    good move by jigga.im tired of hearing that name in hip hop songs.niggas run out of something to say these days and then add a verse about them drinking that shit. But he just gave CURTIS JACKSON a chance to be back in the news-he is always on the lookout for a situation like this!

  104. Front Says:

    Does anybody care what Byron Crawford says? He is playing you e-thugs like a flute. Always blowing hot air up your asses. He is the blogger equivalent to a shock jock, you can never take what he says with a grain of truth. He is simply the lowest common denominator for the internet, and that is saying something. Stick to nahright.

    eskay = eskay
    Byron Crawford

    Carrot Top > Byron Crawford

  106. 911 Says:

    Oh so u have…hahahaha…to funnny….I just read your piece on it…..Front, this dude might say anything its hard not to look at his posts sometimes…1

  107. Being A Bum Says:

    I would love to see next months sale for Cristal. Definitly keeping an eye on that. Cause when word gets out to all the clubs for the reason Jay is boycotting Cristal, then all clubs will follow suit, and all of their customers will follow suit. Jay is one of the top five most influential people in the entertainment business, maybe the single most influential. There will be a substantial effect on the Cristal business.

  108. eskay Says:

    >>Es did you see Bol’s Comments on Jay’s albums…

    yeah. it’s Bol. Front you sound mad @ him though and if that’s the case then he’s doing his job wouldn’t you say

  109. somdweller Says:

    Damn Eskay, end world poverty why don’t ya! I gotta admit, I f#@ks wit’ this site (no rainbow), which would explain why I am postin’ this comment at 2:35 in the mornin’.

  110. Demiks Says:

    Yo eskay, I’m pretty sure everyone had the same idea.

    Jay-Z is an intelligent man (overated rapper, but a smart dude). After finding out about the Cristal “statement” it’s only obvious Jay would pull the drink from his club.

    Cristal should of had someone retract Rouzaud’s statement, but now it’s too late. Because if they retract now, it’s like they’re trying to get the business back from the same people they insulted.

  111. Front Says:

    yeah. it’s Bol. Front you sound mad @ him though and if that’s the case then he’s doing his job wouldn’t you say

    Don’t even know what he wrote, didn’t bother to look, so whatever site he is repping didn’t get that hit, so I guess he isn’t do his job, at least with me. I’m sure he is doing fine though with his hit counter though.

  112. Diplomatic Says:

    the only justification i could come up with on why Crystal made these comments ( like you said eskay it seem so odd) is that maybe that they see the product’s continuing association with the hip hop urban culture (black folks) will degrade the high end luxurious appeal of the product. Its becoming more common now for regular people who don’t have big cash to buy a bottle Cristal at the club and such. Eventually it will no longer be viewed as a symbol of wealth because the people drinking it are not rich or famous. In laments term Crystal would be played out and high society folks wont want to drink and then regular ppl wont also because they’ll imitate the rich. You got to keep in mind that part of the appeal of crystal is that its so expensive that drinking it means that your wealthy and elite. once it looses that aura its just another alcohol beverage. And you can compare this to how Mercedes only builds a limited amount of Mclarens and purposely making it available for a select few. same thing with lamborghinis. That’s the only reason i can think of why they say something that’s obviously going to alienate a market, and the reason is because they wanted to do that.

    ^^ yeahh im the Jay-z of blogging hah

  115. 456 Says:

    It is only natural that Jay do this. When Jay told niggas to button-up I swear to God the next week every thug in the world was wearing them striped button downs. If those shirt makers were all of sudden ‘we don’t want that kind of clientele’ then its only right that we stop giving them our money. So if these bitchy ass cats in France don’t want the extra million a month that Jay was directly responsible for getting them then fuck them. It’s logic.

    As for people believing that Jay should come out against drugs and violence that is just stupid, man. Drugs and violence is not something one man can stop with a statement no matter how influential. Hey I have an idea, why don’t Jay come out against body odor?

    Black folks are always the group of consumers that do all of the buying and never get any credit for the increase in overall sales by white america! Jay should stop wearing Nike and Timberlands for the same reason!!

  120. Boosie Says:

    Nah peeps,

    Dont believe that article on that tommy shit. It has been whispered around in black fashion that tommy has said something to that affect. Two dudes who worked in the fashion industry over heard dude say that. Plus, think about it. His clothes when they first came out were really high price, and for whites. He didnt even have black folks modeling his clothes.

    Have you guys even seen rich girls on mtv? You guys can believe any article. I’m not saying that he said it, what I am saying is that It has not been 100 percent proven that he didnt say it.

    Plus who really gives a fuck that his sales went down, and why as we as blacks should care about it? We shouldnt have been buying that bullshit anyway.

    bullshit. and we should believe you why? where are they at? like they wouldn’t make a fortune going on Dateline talking about it? come with a source or keep it moving.

    LINK ON TOMMY NOT SAYING STATEMENT

  123. CBRIZZLE Says:

    “You are in love with TOMMY
    Because his last name is HILFIGER
    But behind closed doors, TOMMY
    Is calling you a nigger.
    But you could care less
    Because you have been taught to dress to impress.
    If I asked you about your true history
    You would have to look on the back of your jeans and GUESS!
    You come up in the club wearing VERSACE
    Clothes made by a homosexual male
    So even when you say you are straight
    It is very hard to tell.
    And for footwear you wear TIMBERLANDS,
    Even under the sun
    That same tree that is the symbol for them
    Could have been the same one your ancestors were hung from.
    I can not forget your NAUTICA
    When the last memory you have of ships
    Is coming to North America in shackles,
    Being beat over the back with whips.
    And to my beautiful black queens
    Whose creative womb has become barren?
    I am confused, because your face says Nefertiti,
    But your sweater reads DONNA KARAN.
    When was the last time you saw LIZ CLAIBORNE
    Conversing with black women,
    But as soon as her name is printed on a purse
    To Macy’s you quickly go running.
    RALPH LAUREN doesn’t even look at black men
    Unless they are driving him around town
    But as soon as that slave master appears on the back of the horse
    You put whatever you have picked up down.
    My people reclaim your status in this world
    and in your life.
    FUBU, in case you didn’t know, stands for “For Us By Us”.
    Buying black will someday suffice.

    DO YOU KNOW WHO OWNS TIMBERLAND FASHIONS?, WELL,TIMBERLAND IS OWNED BY THE PRESIDENT OF K.K.K. SURPRISED? DON’T BE. READ MORE BOOKS, BLACK PEOPLE. ALWAYS HOPE FOR THE BEST AND PREPARE FOR THE WORST YOU MAY NOT GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR, BUT YOU’LL SURELY PAY FOR WHAT YOU GET!!!”

  133. Kornphlake Says:

    If you get an interview with Jay, Fuck Cristol, you better ask him where all these albums are at. And when is he going to release some of them.

  134. Amber Says:

    Why does it always have to be about race or raciest? I don’t think it has anything to do with being black or not. I don’t think the Cristal maker/owner hates black people or rappers.
    It seems like its more about getting a bad reputation from the people that make songs about bitches & ho’s, being a player, being a thug. Cristal is expensive, they want to have a classy rep. and they feel the rap community may cause a negative reflection on their brand. I don’t think he’s saying rappers can’t/shouldn’t drink it.

  135. t.r.t.o.n.r. 4x platinum (10x globally) Says:

    shit, how am i gonna boycott something i never tasted!!!

    i at least wanna say i sipped it, then boycotted it.

  136. t.r.t.o.n.r. 4x platinum (10x globally) Says:

    and what about baby from cash money??

    i swear he had a cristal room!!!

    yeah, a room dedicated to cris..i saw it in xxl a couple years back

  137. 456 Says:

    amber.

    its niave to think that race doesn’t play a part in his statement. but it doesn’t matter. that unwelcome attention was a windfall for his company and if he could do without it so be it.

  138. More Cristal 411 Says:

    Well the guy who made that statement regarding the Cristal Brand is the majority stockholder-in many ways he doesn’t need permission. His family invented it for some Louis the King type figure. It’s like Walmart-privately owned and operated and it stays in the family. They actually discontinued making it in the early 1900’s ( 1917-I think) and then began to remake it again in the 1940’s. The companies sales took in huge profits late 90’s and early 00’s ( in accordance to the name dropping of its brand by rappers etc..-which places 8th in the hiphop lyrics and brand promo correlation). Just thought you all should know =)

  139. Almack’s Dance Hall * » Blog Archive » Tour Riders: The Good, The Bad, and The Ridiculous Says:

    […] One favorite muscle-bound rapper loves his shrimp. He loves it so much that he continually insists and reminds his tour crew with emphasis that his “SHRIMP MUST BE KEPT ON ICE.” In addition to his affinity for this crustacean, he keeps the rest of his protein intake restricted to chicken, while washing it down with the fifths of Hennessy and bottles of Cristal he requires (maybe he didn’t get the memo). His road crew is also on alert that there should be no beef or pork anywhere in the vicinity of his dressing room. […]
