Barney’s NYC: Jay-Z Back lashed for Sticking by Barneys
January 7, 2014
Over two months ago rapper mogal Jay-z collaborated with Barney’s on a holiday collection. Most of the profits from the collaboration will go help college students, under The Sean Carter Foundation. This collaboration was a major success and went on to bank over one-million dollars.
All of this would be great but there is a controversy surrounding a recent “Racial Profiling Suit.” After the media got word that Rapper Jay Z seems to side with the Barney’s francise the media went into a frenzy! Here is a quote from the music mogul here in defense of his decision:
“This money is going to help individuals facing socioeconomic hardships to help further their education at institutions of higher learning.” -Jay Z
The question was asked “Do you think Jay-Z did the right thing by continuing to support Barneys?” Yes! It would only waste the time of himself as well as the time of so many others, and no money for college students or the foundation; but he choose to win! Business is business, it’s a testament to good business to put your personal opinions to the side to achieve the greater outcome. Now people’s college educations can be stimulated because of the moguls cunning decision.
