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.

    Ayo Crazy88, I said the same shit about Jay not being cool on another site, and I almost got jumped by those damn Jay-Z stans. People only see him as the God MC, because they think hes the only thing out. He knows this and so will come out with albums until the stans grow up. The funniest example of people doing what he says or does, was when he had a polo shirt rolled up on one side, with a white tee under, the day after that video came out, every fool was doing the same thing. If jay come out with his own special Kool-Aid, MF’s gonna be dropping like flies.

    yo, if your favorite rapper came out the closet, would yall still listen to him?

    **prolly not, and I know this, because I’m not as receptive (none) to some R&B cats- Donnie, Rashaan Patterson, or pop cats like George Michael and Elton John, due to their “lifestyle choices”, lol…shit, even Michael Jackson is a little offputting, despite his classic catalog- don’t get me wrong, I’ll listen to the shit on the radio, but something in the back of my mind tells me that if I buy the album, I’m contributing $10 to some fruity nigga’s assless leather chaps (none)…maybe it’s just me, lol…

    props to kanye for coming along and changing shit up [||]

    bottom line even if some of his shit is tight/flashy/semi-fruity [||], at least he broke the fucking mold, which was getting to be stale and retarded

    jay hasn’t been on the cutting edge for a while, both lyrically and stylistically

    he might be the GOAT of the game but for now he fell of a little bit (i mean what do you expect, he’s almost 40!), if you don’t think so, then you’re just a die hard stan

    damn ill…slick ass FBI informant.

    In May 1969, party members tortured and murdered Alex Rackley, a twenty-four-year-old member of the New York chapter of the Black Panther party, because they suspected him of being a police informant. A number of party members took part. Three party officers later admitted guilt. Party supporters alleged that George Sams, the man who identified Rackley as an informer and ordered his execution, was himself the informant and an agent provocateur employed by the FBI. Sams had claimed that Bobby Seale had ordered Beckley’s execution. The case resulted in the New Haven, Connecticut Black Panther trials of 1970. The trial ended with a hung jury, and the prosecution chose not to request another trial.

  150. Mark Twain Fame Says:

    even more crazy…

    Many commentators felt that Rackley had been framed by the actual informant, agent provocateur, and the prosecution’s “star witness”, Sams, who was nicknamed “Crazy George”.

    The case later became a subject of controversy regarding the role of a young Hillary Clinton in the trial. An urban legend claims that Hillary Clinton defended Bobby Seale and helped him get acquitted. Hillary Clinton was a law student at the time and did not directly serve on the defense team. Instead, she coordinated the ACLU’s effort to monitor the trial for civil rights violations.

    ***yeah, the abstract shit can go too far, sometimes, and he gets a little too heavy handed with the “freedom/incarceration” metaphors, but besides “a Cattle Killing”, and the weird ending to “Philadelphia Fire”- I’ve always enjoyed his work- his writing style kinda reminds me of Ralph Ellison…

    ^ralph ellison is up there with rakim and basquiat to me, in terms of influencing me. i hear wideman’s writing a book on franz fanon right now.

    as for books i’d recommend:

    invisible man – ellison
    unbearable lightness of being – milan kundera
    famished road – ben okri
    100 years of solitude – marquez
    intruder in the dust – faulkner
    sula – toni morrison
    siddhartha -herman hesse
    the hot kid – elmore leonard
    the amazing adventures of kaviler and clay – michael chabon

    and comic books:

    100 bullets – rawness

    Dilla was more than just a beatmaker, he was a real all round producer (evidenced by some real musical dudes like ?uestlove who say’s he’s a Dilla stan too.)

    A lot of people will say Preemo’s or PR’s beats is better… I think they should be saying “I prefer their beats”. The title for production quality and musicality is not up for grabs, that’s Dilla’s.

    ^ Maybe Im out of the loop, but I cant name much from Dilla that I like. What has he done to have the GOAT title?

    ==============================================

    @ MIW

    Damn, Made… “Runnin’” by Pharcyde, “Stakes Is High” by De La, “Dyanamite” by The Roots, “The Light” by Common are all good enough, and individually unique enough to go up against anybody’s best, imo, of course.

    But those are famous joints… the work he did on albums, on Erykah’s joints, his own beat CD’s (trust me, buy ‘Donuts’), Busta’s album’s, Common’s albums, Slum Village…. it’s all so nuanced that I don’t think I could make a good arguement in his favour without playing you some music.
