Jay-Z Buys Licensing to Manufacture & Distribute Billionaire Boys Club

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

Not so much Jay-Z himself as it’s Rocawear who’s doing the buying, but GQ reports that Jay-Z and Pharrell will be working “as a tandem” on the luxury brand P founded in 2005. The article also point out that the brand won’t be showing up on department stores shelves just yet, since Rocawear is simply providing financial backing for the brand.

UPDATE:

“Partnering with @4real4rell on BBC” follow him.. (Not “buying” as GQ erroneously reported.)less than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet Reply

Video: Curtis Interview w/ Evan Davis

Wednesday, October 28th, 2009

50 Cent is certainly not the most obvious choice for an author of a business and life self-help book. The US hip hop artist shot to fame in 2003 with the release of debut album Get Rich or Die Tryin’, and you might think that is the extent of his business philosophy. What lessons, after all, are learned from a youth spent dodging bullets and dealing drugs on the streets of New York, that are of interest to legal businesses?

Props to Danielson

And I’m sorry if I don’t give a shit about Curtis’ album leaking. This is the same person who will have his cronies post links to Game & Fat Joe’s albums on ThisIsCurtis (before it drops) and then go on the air and discuss numbers. Karma is a bitch.

Notice the Stones Throw t-shirt. I’m glad he’s taking his time with this, half-assing it would be an atrocity to hip hop. Hit the jump for a shot from behind the scenes.
