Jay-Z & Steve Stoute Launch Ad Agency

The New York Times has a piece on a new ad agency that Steve Stoute and Jay are launching called Translation Advertising. 

Mr. Carter said his role at Translation Advertising would be to offer his creative and entrepreneurial ideas. Mr. Stoute described it as not “day-to-day operations” but rather “using his eye, his taste, his understanding of the culture.”

This seems like a no-brainer given the "I-mention-it-you-go-buy-it" type of influence he holds over our demographic.

    That genius Jay can’t start any business by himself…nigga is a fucking puppet.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^
    WHY START A BUSINESS ON YOUR OWN AND INCUR ALL OF THE RISK.

    BY PARTNERING WITH ONE PERSON OR MORE YOU CAN GET INVOLVED IN MORE DIVERSE BUSINESS VENTURES

    THUS GAINING MORE EXPERIENCE IN MULTIPLE SECTORS OF BUSINESS

    AND GAIN MORE DIVIDENDS

    THAT’S WHY YOU PARTNER…………….GENIUS!!!
