Hova is such an inspiration to the kid…I need to step my game up like 1000%
Everyone looks lively! Its great to see blacks staying on top!
looking at that can make me thirsty! LOL!!!
Jay is making some very profitable moves. Bless the man for thinking he can be more that Brooklyn but remain loyal at the same time.
Run’s daugther’s outfit is too cute. And Jay Z stays doing his thing…that’s what’s up!
HOT DAMN! Where did they find Deborah Cox!? I loved her back in the day! Bish can SAAAAAAAAAAAAAANG!
Cassie looks so much like a knock-off version of Christina Milian. Go back to dark hair girl! You were wack but at least you had your own identity!
The Simmons girls look nice.
Boooooooooooooooo @ Coke. Pepsi for lyfe! LOL
That Cherry Coke can looks great, and I’m thirsty. Everyone looks good, except… F A B O L O U S. And why was Cassie there? Trying support her wack album?
Yeah I am! *claps* Ok so anyhoo, Jay-Z is doing MAJOR things, BIG thinfs, shyt ERYTHING!!! And yes u cant knock his hustle at all. I wish Nick would sit down somewhere! Is there a such thing as overexposure? And I mean overexposure just from the red carpet and events! What is he doing now? Wild N Out and more wack movies? Dont even get me started on his fake sex tape. Where has Deb been? Time for a new album I’d day. Honestly even though Angie was in the “Shorty Like Mine” vid, she is so cracked. Vanessa has her in looks Im sorry. And even though we all know Cassie is our fave NON SINGER, she does have natural beauty. Gotta give credit to these stars who look good w/little to no makeup. U just gotta…
Rev Run’s gurls be everywhere
@ 7 – I agree I thought Cassie was C. Milian at 1st too. She should def go back to darker hair. It accents her way way better. However if changing ur hair color could make you actually S-I-N-G, she should keep dying it every color of the rainbow
Pop is bad for your teeth…but it’s soooo good.
JAY-Z IS STILL UGLY. NO AMOUNT OF MONEY CAN CHANGE THAT.
i hope deborah is coming out with some ish since she aint been seen in a minute.
Nope, can’t knock his hustle at all. But now can he start brushing his yellow teeth! Make no sense to be that successful and walk your ass around town with yellow stained teeth. You can take the negro out the hood, but you…(well, yaw know the rest) Dayum. But I love the new coke can look. Makes you want one.
Drops another one in for Jay.
Black men makin’ “chaper” (cheese and paper) for those who don’t know.
Well, good for Jay-Z. Getting paid.
Nick Cannon: still corny as ever.
Simmons girls are cute. Angela looks like she’s gained weight. It looks good on her, though.
Cassie is pretty. She should stick to modeling, leave that singing alone. And like ‘yall said, go back to the darker colored hair.
JayZ may not be that spectacular with rapping but this dude got an intelligent mind. He has really being doing the damn thing. Much props to him! I wonder who is worth more. Him or Diddy? I know both have ventured off into the “corporate” side of business.
i liked the black and red can better, but jay-z knows how to do the damn thing!
I love u Jay!
Jay is doing the damn thing… Love him… He is a Intelligent man who has definitely changed his game up. Jay you go boy
Damn COKE paid him 3 mill just to design a fukin can
The Cherry coke can look hot. Angela needs to learn how to pose(she looks weird), while vinessa is looking sexy. Miss you much Deborah. Where have you been? Cassie really needs to gain some weight.
I love Jay’s business mind!!!!!!!!!!!! Yall can call him ugly all yall want but the dude is smart as hell!!!
And what are yall talking about? Jay is the best rapper alive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nick Cannon get’s on my nerves
fab looks like he’s doing well after his “incident”. nick cannon looks overdressed (he can just NEVER get it right huh?!). where the hell did they dig up deborah cox from?? those simmons girls are SOOOO ugly, i don’t get the appeal about them. why is cassie suddenly everywhere again?? i hope it’s not cuz she’s going to attempt to come out with another album! the design of the can is the best dressed thing on this page.
Jay Z = Consumate Hustler. I give the dude props for keeping his business game on lock. But that can would never be caught in my hand in public. Its gay as hell. LoL. But get that money bruh.
Make that money J. So let me get this straight; J got his former partners completely out of Rocafella records AND RocaWear? Is that right? If so, what a genious move (buisness wise). No more three way split.
Blah Blah Blah !!! Must be a slow news day.
THERE’S A DAMN PARTY FOR EVERYTHING!!!!!
#21 it was’nt just to design the can he’s part of the whole relaunching campaign, as in coming up with the ad concepts,slogans (Probably a song) the marketing, distribution…whole 9 yards
@23 h town chic
No, correction, Jayz is the best “beat maker” alive, not best rapper sweetie. There’s a difference. People are often confused, just cause you like his song cause it’s a hot track dont mean he was spittin fiyah on the track, but just that the track itself is hot cause of the beat and/or hook. he come up with some hot beats, but dat about it…Sorry, i’m not taken in so easily.
Good example is this coke can. I like the new design. He’s excellent in marketing now that he’s been dating beyonce and talking with her father. And everybody knows the Knowles family are experts at marketing and making things appear more than what it actually is. Its evident he’s been taking lessons cause it seems jayz is growing and taking more risks.
I think he has found his niche, business. But rappin, it’s back to the drawing board for another hot beat and him rappin on the track telling us how bad he is. Any time you have to tell people something, it’s false, cause damn, let people decide for themselves. But when you do it, its subtle advertising and brainwashing, put with a hot beat, and that makes a hot commodity= jayz and his marketing abilities.
that vanessa girl is pretty but angela is ugly
love the coke can btw
JZ needs to sit his ugly ass down somewhere…but I like the coke can
Instead of designing coke cans he should have been working a little harder on the last album he put out.
I’m not trying to hate but my cousin had it and I am glad I listened to his before I bought because that stuff was garbage.
Whatever happened to entertainers that simply wanted to MASTER their craft.
Everybody is so money hunger now: selling clothes, making movies, doing albums, selling perfum, handbags, shoes, selling games, doing television, designing furniture, making soda cans, selling food, writing books, etc.
So many celebs now are trying to DO EVERYTHING and you know what you are left with a bunch of people that are good but not Extrodinary
celebs but not incons.
I am not criticizing Jay-Z in particular but modern day celebs in general.
Areha Franklin wasn’t hawking everything back in day, she was a singer.
Sydney Portier wasn’t putting out albums, he stuck to acting.
And now both of them are LEGENDS that will be remembered forever for their contribution to their craft and their body of work.
There is a lot that can be said, in my opinion, for an artist that puts greed aside and chooses to become great at 1 or 2 things rather than mediocore at 15 or 20.
That’s it from me. I just wanted to get that off my chest.
What do you all think?
this man is untouchable,love him or hate him hes the best
Gd Fo JAY.
STACK THAT MONEY
That drink is the shyt! I loves me some cherry Coke regardless.
man this guy makes money in ways no one could ever think of but hey i love da design
Jay-Z is not impressing me not one bit…..I mean he is only doing what most celebs are doing when asked to do something for money…..saying yes! I mean what does he represent????? Budweiser? Coke? HP? Cristal? Ace of Spades? Basketball? Rap? Kids in Africa, Kids from Brooklyn,Beyonce’s sidekick? (because if it wasn’t for her…believe me, whitey would not be interested in him) He spreads hisself to thin to me. Therefore, any of us can do this and get money….I don’t see the inspiration. Miss Raven Simone is more inspiring to me!
*shrugs* it’ll end up in the trash just like all the other soda cans….
Damn where the hell has Deborah Cox been?
NOT A COKE DRINKER BUT THE CAN LOOKS NICE SO BIG UPS JAY.
How does he find time to run his label?
Oh please, so now he’s selling soda.
Popeye’s Chicken? Fruity Pebbles? Camel Cigarettes?
This pompous punk irritates me.
When did Jay-Z turn into a sell out??? First that “Jay-Z blue” thing now this. Sh!ts getting tired Jay! Stop advertising and work on ya next album cause “Kingdom Come” was garbage! P.S. please don’t beat on Beyonce!
That is the cutest can!!!! Like seriously! Jay is an amazing business man!
i’m going srink that shit just cause the can is fly
I feel you on that
MS.T….You just said what many of us were already thinking. These celebrities are greedy as hell, but the consumers are buying into it. Most of them are already mediocre at singing or acting and they are trying to branch out. Please…
My lil neice could’ve designed this can for the low. I don’t see anything spectacular about it at all.
But the peeps is looking nice. I did the makeup for one of ‘em!
It’s a shame good rap CDs that came from Lupe Fiasco, The Clipse, and Ghostface Killah got ignored because of Jay-Z’s wack ass album, and people stay trying to defend it saying that its good.
The new can looks cute and girly.
Not crazy about cherry Coke but the can is too cute Very feminine.
JAY Z IS THE MAN A BUSINESS MAN DAT IS HAHA I LVOE DIS MAN
I definitely agree.
@45 natural mystic
Jay-Z hustling as usual…I like the can though its cute.
Aww @ Deborah Cox and the Simmons!
Boo to all the others…Cassie should have never dyed that mess, Nick is a loser, Wyclef who cares, and you can put Fabolous under that who cares category too.
Since when do camels store coca cola in their humps? Won’t it explode? How will soda pop keep them hydrated? LOL! @ RNB 4 Life…you’re avator cracks me up! Family Guy is the shit!
sighz, here we go with another person comparing the past to the future and trying to be a backseat driver to the celebs. is it possible that now people are just more open to trying new things. i like to sing, act, design clothes, produce, and i’d like to have my own fragrance one day. so trying all of my interests makes me money hungry?? sure aretha franklin was mainly a singer, but maybe that was really her only serious interest.
Don’t support Cracka Cola…its another attempt by the man to get a “sell-out” to sell their product. Im disappointed…
In November 2000, Coca-Cola agreed to pay $192.5 million to settle a class-action race-discrimination lawsuit and promised to change the way it manages, promotes and treats minority employees. In 2003, protesters at Coca-Cola’s annual meeting claimed that blacks remained underrepresented in top management at the company, paid less than white employees and fired more often.
These cases don’t end in the U.S. they go from Africa, to India, to Asia for the mistreatment of minorities. I hope we as African Americans can take a better judgment when it comes to choosing endorsements.
