: Barney's and Macy's are in the midst of a HUGE CONTROVERSY in New York. Apparently they were ARRESTING PEOPLE who bought items there . . . just because they were BLACK. In the midst of this controversy - Jay is partnering with both companies, to launch a new cologne in time for Christmas.
Here is what AllHipHop.com is reporting:
According to Women’s Wear Daily (WWD) Jay Z will add his first ever cologne to his upcoming Barneys collection.
The cologne, called Gold went through 3,200 possible names and according to Donald J. Loftus, president of Parlux Ltd., the name was chosen when Jay Z grabbed the cologne and said “This is the sh*t; it’s gold.”
The fragrance will be promoted through a few outlets and intriguingly will feature a Macys window display of Jay Z transforming into a gold chain. The fragrance will be available on November 20th at Barneys NY and then released nationwide afterwards at prices between $39 and $79.
he been said f black ppl... black ppl don't care about our rights and respect... that is why we will never get them..
dumb asses talking about their president is black when he is actually white and African...smh
It's Ok for Jay to say Fcuk the People.. ..
Cause Slave Mentality ppl will go to Barney's and any other department store to buy what Jay is promoting..... But They DON'T have a savings to sustain them for a month.
So do you Jay!
Wasn't he and his air head wife poising for pics with Trayvon's mom for photo opp time. Look at the true person, he has sold his sole and would sell you for green paper. No scruples, no integrity, just poor greed.
HE TOTALLY BASHED TOMMY HILFIGER BUT GONNA DEFEND BARNEY's BY GOING THROUGH WITH THIS DEAL,,,, THIS GUY
MAKE $$$$ TODAY NO CHECKING ACCOUNT OR CREDIT CARD REQUIRED HOW???
And every high fashion clothing company such as Versace, Gucci, hilfiger, polo said they don't want black ppl wearing they're clothes but yet y'all simple minded fux still praise it. So y'all doing your part to. Stop pointing fingers and look at yourself. You guys would sell your mother and best friend for a measly million dollars. He's doing business. Do you really think he's not going to because they're racist. Their all racist you idiots.
Fact is a lot of these young black guys are lazy and do take stuff at macys...ive been going there for years and never had a problem...I even walked out one time with an item which still had the alarm on it and was kindly ask to get it removed...also 98% of the security guards there are black people...I guess it is simply a couple of security personels who decides to follow their own protocols and be hero to move up faster.
Jay z a brillant rapper and he's a decent businessman but he does not exude style or fashion why would anyone buy any fashion item that he promotes ??? its going to end up in CVS, so this controversy wont last long. unlike Puff who is an average rapper but is a brilliant business man with fashionable sense.
The Same People That He Said Eff You To Are The Same Ones That Would Have Went Out & Supported Him & Bought His Cologne. Good Luck Wit Your Sales Jay. He Still Got Supporters But He Turned Alot More People Off. Can't Wait To See This Arrogant Guy Fall From His Little Throne.
It didn't take MTO for me to notice he gives no f.u.c.k.s.. About his own people.. Like really MTO y'all not telling me nothing i don't know... Me & my boyfriend were literally about to have a big argument because i told him i wasn't a fan of this camel or his wife.. Like why is that such a crime? Everyone so gets defensive about jay & bey.. I find it extremely Awkward
I don't really pay attention to this cat and what he does all I know is when I got the new album I haven't played it since.. TOM FORD .. Really... That turned me the hell off ..screams sell out .. All you see is him making deals and it screams sell out .. Make that money jay but why you at it make sure your not selling your soul but from what I hear it goes hand in hand .. I can give two f//ucks either way but I won't be buying his s//hit And while I'm going in his wife looks straight Caucasian on the billboard signs for her Pepsi adds ..
Why is Jay Z face all over the media. Where is Barneys CEO picture. Where is Macy's CEO picture. These are white owned businesses targeting blacks, but they make it about Jay Z. Right on cue y'all attack like rabid dogs
At look at these comments and all I can say is BLACK PEOPLE ARE A SAD DISGRACE of a people.
This is why the JEW and the DOMINICAN have acquired power. They stand in solidarity.
You mess with one, you mess with them all. JAY Z is a devil and a snake.
BOYCOTT THIS FA**OT
Good! WE blacks, don't even respect each other, but when the white man does something we want to ban together.Respect each other all the time.. I hope he continue to get his money.He is not your black leader.
Did Yall Really Think Jay Z Care About Black Folk. Shit He treated Black Folk Like Shit When He Was With The Roc ASK CAM. He Also Is the reason Black Folks Got this FUCK NIGGAS IM GETTIN MY MONEY ATTITUDE Which Divides Us. He Also Is the Reason IRV GOTTI, SUGE KNIGHT, DAME DASH And LIL JAY (From Rap A Lot) Was All Of A Sudden Brought Up on Charges Of Money Laundering/ Tax Evasion And Etc. Dame Was Bout to Partner With All Them To Buy A Black Distribution Company And Jay Snitched So Dame Wouldnt Be Succesful As Him. They Told Yall He Worshipped the Devil Yall Didnt Listen The Man Is Evil ANd His Wife Is 4 Times Worst DONT SUPPORT THESE FOLKS
Nig|-|uz Gonna Stay C00|\|in'. Buncha Sellouts. They Made It From Outta The Ghetto. Now They Livin' It Up Like The Cr@ck@as. But Ya Gonna Continue To Support Them. So In The End Of The Day. They Gonna Continue To Win!
I DON'T BLAME HIM!!!! GET YO MONEY FROM THESE DUMP AS NINJAS THAT WILL BE IN LINE BLACK FRIDAY TO PURCHASE IT! ALL dept stores keep a 3rd eye on black folks as soon as we enter. That is why black boosters work with white women. They would walk in 5mins apart. While security is all over the blk chick, BECKY is robbing them blind.
On a personal note I would not buy a product from Bey or Jay. They make 100 mil a year & won't buy 1 cheap as bldg in the hood where these ninjas can get off the block & safely play ball. Todays blk youth have no where to go. They are bored & boredom is dangerous. These 2 icons won't put a dime in their own hometowns but these stupid as youth keep them paid.
What Jay is simply telling us average Joes is "STAY IN YOUR LANE". We the ones who support his concert and clothing lines. We live for brand names, that we can't really afford, and just has some chump change in the bank. Start saving my people.
Some blacks are just born self hating and disloyal. This is why it's so easy for successful blacks to sell out, there's simply no loyalty or support system in our community. Jay Z is playing the game and you should all take notes. He isn't saying "F black people", he's saying "move over white boys and let this black man sit at the table". You go to any Macy's in the country right now as it will be filled with blacks so if we aren't going to sop patronizing racist companies then why should Jay Z stop doing business with them? Too many fake black militants. Put your fists down, you aren't about anything except tearing down other black people.
This is just more self hatred from black people.
There was a report that African American purchasing power rose to 1.1 trillion It said:
"Economist Nicole Kenney offers a sobering â€“ if not downright frightening â€“ conclusion. According to Kenney, while a dollar in Asian-American communities circulates on average for an entire month and a dollar in Jewish communities in America circulates within that community for approximately 20 days, the same dollar in the African-American community stays within its community for an average of a mere six hours."
6 HOURS??? This is why you see nothing but empty buildings in black neighborhoods. This is because the same blacks who think Jay Z is right are quick to run to Barney's or some other store outside of the black community and spend their money while other groups circulate that money through their communities. Black folk really do exhibit self hatred and this is why we have no power!
IF it was for me alone this bowcat vagina chewing rapper would not make a dollar because from this guy came out in the 90,s he is a self centre selfish rapper he only take the fans money and get rich,,, But he do not give a dam about the black fans sufferation and discrimination from white trash Pigs,,, Those idiot and dummies in brooklyn are always on TV giving him Praises and respect but the other way he do not give a dam abouy them,, So I hope this is a lesson to us black People.
I don't suggest anyone give this camel coon their money! Why support a man that supports the profiling, lynching and destruction of his own people. Especially those that supported the clown by purchasing his products and music.
YOu want to support people that care about their consumers and constituents. He obviously does not. Anyone that supports this dumb a ss is supporting their demise. Black people need to come together on things like this and express what we feel is acceptable and unacceptable in our treatment by companies, other races and ourselves and this is unacceptable.
Macy's was just noted in a lawsuit for having a quota to arrest Black men and women or people of brown skin. Males are known as 10 90s and Black women are 10 91s. Why are we categorized as such, why are we being singled out and targeted, especially when we have the money to purchase goods and services. He can take his cologne and shove it up his a ss!
1luv2c is that the sorry PR they are putting out for this. If I wanted to give to children I can find a charity that does so and it doesn't have to be by purchasing his cologne. To think this ugly mongrel is not profiting from this is naive.
If you want to donate to children, research a well respected charity
TheRose I totally agree with you and support your true belief about this 2 face nazi kkk guy in a couple month back he was with trayvon martin Parents and now in november after these 2 stores is accusing and racial Profiling black People he is still adding merchandise to there shelves,,,Jay Z has sell out his black nation and is a Perfect Replica of Peter and judas who denied and betrayed christ.
Jay Z is a sell out. He displays no solidarity in dealing witn social ills facing his own kind. He quick to display joy and adulation glf that coldplay guy but act so cool and distant with othet black men. Other black folk on here saying he is right have no racial pride. I stopped messing with Macys when Donald Trump kept up tne birther nonsense.
business is business.........

lol he is stupid, his song tom ford is so lame. i'm sure some rich@ss fashion designer does not want to be associated with him and yet he makes a whole song advertising that guy's gucci sh@t for free. moron
Oh the colonge will sell, cuz jay will buy them shits up..... jay has always said that hes a hustler, hes addicted 2 money n fame. Im disappoint with his new joint. TOm FOrd???? FR?? Old azz, outdated designs. Why this trick not bigging up his own s hit or diddy designs. Jay wait this late in the game 2 call his wife n mother of his child a bitch. Dude 2 old fa this s hit. Nicca done fell off fr.
He's a Barney's STOOGE. I suggest people not be a JayZ Stooge. Right is right and wrong is wrong and what that company did is racist and wrong. To stand by that after our forefathers fought so hard for the rights we have today, just to have some company spit in our face is a disgrace. If that young man had stolen the item then that is a different story. He bought the item and still got treated like dirt. I don't support this man or his wife or anyone that can stand on their own two feet when they good and well what they did was wrong.
And How D HELL is this dude and his wife gonna march for Trayvon Martin and then condone this dumb sh--! Two faced fake azz camel head! This is so d a m n contradictory it isn't even funny. He can go f- himself with a cactus.
The only reason they went to the march for Trayvon Martin was all publicity for him and her! They don't give a dam what happen to black folks! But y'all going to give him and his " foundation " all your hard earn money so he can brag how rich he is and how poor you are on his next song cause that's all he going to really rap about . So don't act surprised that he didn't stand up like a real black man and tell Barney's to step off! Y'all clueless man! It ain't always got to be about getting money ! They treat us like sh*t no matter how much money we got! Wake up my people!
He about his money. Although he does nothing for the unfortunate. Who cares anyway. Him and his wife are two uncle Toms who try to act like they so into the black stuff. But underneath all that they hate you black people. They just use black people for their album sales and y'all fall for it. SMH!
First of all if this was Rihanna/Gimmickanna y'all wouldn't give a p.huck about this!!! Once it's jay or bey y'all crawl out in droves! I will buy his perfume! Gold! Sounds interesting! Jay doesn't have much talent to me, but I think he's very clever. I love clever ppl! And I love cologne, so I think the scent he chose will be amazing. As others have pointed you black pol are the worst race! Y'all hate, tear each other down every d.amn day but only come together when it's the "white man" going against the "race"! What race?! In this race it's every man for himself!!!!
Y'all letting mto rile y'all up! Becuz they know they can! This man is an entertainer, rapper! Rihanna gets her money, sings call J up to close a deal and already said on Twitter I hate broke bytches, but y'all ain't say ish about that when she's speaking to y'all! So much hate in that comment from her!!!

Good! WE blacks, don't even respect each other, but when the white man does something we want to ban together.Respect each other all the time.. I hope he continue to get his money.He is not your black leader.*****Exactly!
Y'all need to worry about these preachers of all races playing with God's name! In it purely for $ and living the most sinful lifestyles! Stop excusing them! I believe there an extra special, extra hot place in Hell for people who use God's name for selfish reasons!!!! A murderer is better than you!
HE'S SELLING PERFUME???
WHAT IS IT? "EAU DE PARFUM OF CAMEL SWEAT".
THE ONLY ONES WHO WILL BE BUYING THIS CHIMICAL REPELLENT WILL BE THE ONES PICKING UP CIGARETTE BUTTS OF THE GROUND TO FINISH THEM OFF.
AS PER USUAL.
ON ANOTHER NOTE...THAT EX CRACK DEALER AND ILLITERATE ZOO FREAK HAS BEEN TELLING "FU" FOR A LOOOOONG TIME.
IT ALL STARTED WHEN HE BOASTED ON A RECORD SELLING CRACK TO YOUR MOM/SISTER/FATHER...AND HAVING YOU..OF ALL PEOPLE...BUY IT AND PLAYING IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN.
HE KNOWS WHO IS HIS AUDIENCE. TIFFANY JOHANSSON AND STEPHAN LAWRENCE HAVE BETTER THINGS TO DO WITH THEIR MONEY THAN SPEND IT ON A BAFOON.
ON THE OTHER HAND LIL' TAYTAY AND SHAMIKA...WELL...YA'LL KNOW WHAT TIME IT IS..
