While everyone’s watching The Throne, Jay-Z just expanded his ever-growing empire by brokering a deal to buy Pharrell’s BBC clothing line. According to GQ, Jay’s Rocawear company now owns the licensing to manufacture and distribute Billionaire Boys Club as of today. P’s not out of the picture as the pair will work in tandem on the brand.
While he’s scooping up streetwear companies, I’d like to petition Hova to resurrect Mecca or Enyce.
Update: Jay’s ghost-Twitterer woke up and decide to tweet the above message to clear up GQ’s erroneous report. Shawn’s only “partnering” with Skateboard P and not buying BBC. C’mon, GQ, get it together over there. Sheesh!
