Long time haters like blogger Sandra Rose relished in seeing his and Beyoncé careers fall apart. Rocawear responded with they were restructuring the line and focusing more on Europe which has done wonders for wife Beyoncé’s House of Dereon brand. Well he that laughs last laughs the hardest and Sandra I am sure Jay is having a hearty chuckle off of you. After releasing Rocawear’s commercial during the NCAA championship game but they announced and exclusive deal with the Yankees.

40/40 closed for Health Code Violations

In not surprising news Jay-z 40/40 club was briefly shut down for health code violations. The restaurant received a grade C by the state after an inspection. This is even more interesting since the club just reopened this week after being closed for renovations and repairs. I know that Jay is loyal to his friends that came through the struggle with him but just maybe he should look outside his group of friends to manage this club. The 40/40 has a long line of documented issues over the past years. Read the violations of the club and tell us what you think:http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/40-40-club-jay-z-department-of-health-closed-doh-137819003.html
