What the Fuck! I’m sorry, although Jay-Z is a talented man and people all over the world love his music, ain’t no way in hell is his name’s synonymous with the Rolling Stones.
Quoted from the Times Online, April 4, 2008:
Apparently he struck a deal with industry big wigs (who always put on the best concerts) Live Nation for a whopping $150 million! Holy fuckin shit! The 10-year deal includes concert tours, merchandising and music sales. Needless to say, Jay-Z is no way in any form, close to the iconic status of the legendary, ground breaking, paving the way for all others, out of this world amazing rockers that we call the Rolling Stones.
A definite entertainer, but I still yet to own a Jay-Z album. I guess I’m more of a Kanye kinda girl (and yes I know he was all on Jay-Z’s Blue Print). But he’s bad ass! Hmm, I think I’ll head to the gym now, put on my Skullcandy and rock out to some Late Registration.
