Jay-z has finally made a statement on the Barneys store/profiling situation that has been in the news this past week. From radio, newspapers and all news online outlets urging and awaiting a response from the hip hop mogul Jay-Z. Read his full statement below and let us know what your thoughts are on it.
“This collaboration lives in a place of giving and is about the Foundation. I am not making a dime from this collection; I do not stand to make millions, as falsely reported. I need to make that fact crystal clear. The Shawn Carter Foundation is the beneficiary and the foundation is receiving 25% of all sales from the collaboration, 10% of all sales generated in the store on November 20th and an additional donation from Barneys. This money is going to help individuals facing socio-economic hardships to help further their education at institutions of higher learning. My idea was born out of creativity and charity… not profit.
I move and speak based on facts and not emotion. I haven’t made any comments because I am waiting on facts and the outcome of a meeting between community leaders and Barneys. Why am I being demonized, denounced and thrown on the cover of a newspaper for not speaking immediately? The negligent, erroneous reports and attacks on my character, intentions, and the spirit of this collaboration have forced me into a statement I didn’t want to make without the full facts. Making a decision prematurely to pull out of this project, wouldn’t hurt Barneys or Shawn Carter, but all the people that stand a chance at higher education. I have been working with my team ever since the situation was brought to my attention to get to the bottom of these incidents and at the same time find a solution that doesn’t harm all those that stand to benefit from this collaboration.
I am against discrimination of any kind, but if I make snap judgements, no matter who it’s towards, aren’t I committing the same sin as someone who profiles? I am no stranger to being profiled and I truly empathize with anyone that has been put in that position. Hopefully this brings forth a dialogue to effect real change. – Shawn “JAY Z” Carter.”

Dope new video just got dropped off to our inbox from O.B. called “YOU & I” featuring SaFE produced by Reese Jones and directed by Jimmy Giambrone. This is O.B.’s lead single from the forthcoming album Celestial Offerings. Let us know what you think.
“The song was inspired by a need to bring back that competitive edge in hip hop,” says O.B. “Not a lot of rappers at the time of its conception were delivering a lot of wit and aggressiveness while still being lyrical. We sought out to do just that and remain extremely polished at the same time. The video deals with the concept of ‘In A Perfect World’. In that world, people, particularly women, wouldn’t stray from very lyrical, intellectual hip hop. In fact, it would be essential and a part of their daily lives just like a lot of the mainstream stuff is. We wanted to show people who were just as dedicated to our music and by doing so, breaking the taboos surrounding underground and indie artists.”
Celestial Offerings drops November 30 featuring J Nolan, Culture Kev, Dano B. Picasso, Bretagne,
RaCharm, Arkutec, Bravestarr, QB Da Problem, Kingshon and Nu Vintage.
