Jay-Z Fits Florida Youth in Rocawear Gear

jay1.jpgDef Jam president Jay-Z recently sent a large care package filled with over $2,500 in Rocawear clothing to the Campaign for Adolescent and University Student Empowerment (CAUSE) youth program at the Boys and Girls Club in Spring Hill, Fla. According to the Deland-Deltona Beacon, the mogul sent the gift as a thank you for their efforts after he met CAUSE program founder Matt Morton during a photo shoot for Rocawear’s “I Will Not Lose” social awareness campaign. After hearing about the accomplishments of the young people involved in the group, which raises money for causes in the area, Jay arranged for delivery of the gift. “Young people want to be a part of something great,” Morton said. “We invite them to do it, then show them how to make it happen themselves.” Morton himself is set to appear on billboards and in print and online ads for the Rocawear campaign starting this summer.

    IT’S GOOD TO SEE CHILDREN RECOGNIZED AND LET THEM KNOW THAT SOMEONE IS LOOKING OUT FOR THEM.

    IT’S GOOD TO SEE SOMEONE WITH SO MUCH GIVE BACK WITH DONATIONS, GIVING PEOPLE WATER IN AFRICA,AND SENDING HUNDREDS OF KIDS TO COLLEGE.

    $2,500? man, his half chain cost more than that. he could’ve done better. and jay doing this as a business move. this “good cause” marketing is already a fad trend. but whatever. still good is good. but really $2,500 is really cheap for someone w/ his financial power.

    You DO Have A Very Interestingly Valid Point. No doubt I AM both happy & Proud to see Jigga standin’ up. He doesn’t have to. No One Is Obligated To DO anything. But when you brag about spending way more than that on liquor, chains, and cars in the music you market & sell to these kids, it will raise eyebrows.
    But I’ll Always Love & Respect That Man & His Accomplishments. Brooklyn Always Gotta Represent!

    LUKEE LEFTY:

    Please take a moment to re-read my post and really try to Overstand what I’m saying. You ain’t gotta agree, but try to see where a Sista is coming from. When you factor in what the cost of a basic, decent RocaWear outfit costs, what is 2500 bills? Does he owe anyone anything? NO. Should it be greatly appreciated? YES. However, you can’t record songs and such shouting out all these expensive Brand Name Cars and Clothes, tell the lower echelon they ain’t shit if they don’t have it, then turn around and give motivated Youth on The Come Up Chicken Feed. I Love This man. This My Brother from Bklyn. And it’s because of him and his efforts and accomplishments ( and Dame, Puff, Russell, Mona, & Baby Chris) that I’ve been able to take my game to the “Next Level” that will eventually propel me to the “Outer Limits”- Oprah Style. I’ve worked in The Industry for 13 years. I’ve seen first hand how money is frivolously spent. The above mentioned are like my Brothers and my Sisters. And like my Blood Relatives, I tell’em when they’re RIGHT, and when they’re WRONG. It’s all in love.
    What and how much do I donate? I’ll tell you. My funds ain’t like Jay’s, but I do better than alright. Still live in the ‘Hood and I’m Good. However, when I’m not donating to UNCF or The Aaliyah Memorial Fund (which is helping to fight the war on Breast Cancer) or different HIV/AIDS charities, I’m trying to help my peoples with whom I am in constant day to day contact with on the Streets. Such As:
    1) The Sista in The Corner Bodega who can’t afford her groceries ’cause she’s holding her kids down alone. You know the ones I’m talking about. The ones who Baby Daddy has 4 or 5 other Baby Mamas, and he can’t afford none of y’all. Or, The Baby Daddies who Really wanna be BABY MOMMIES, and abandon their families to be D.L. Hoes. For Sistas going through it like THAT, I pick up their grocery tab. It ain’t about them, it’s about starving Black kids right here in our American ‘Hoods. Feel Me?
    2)Or, I’ll look out for a Brotha who just came home from Lock-Up and looking for work. I used to work in a Fashion Showroom and I would help to get Brothas right so that they can look the part for that interview. Shit, I would have them looking like GQ/ Ebony Man. lol. Why? “Cause if we don’t look out for one another, who will? It was a Dumb Risky move on my part that could have cost me my job. I was on some Robin Hood Shit. But I believed in those Brothas and I wanted to see them take their rightful places back in their families as a Head Of Household who could be respected and admired. I even helped embellish Resumes AND I taught them how to speak effectively. I’m A REAL HUSTLER! See Me?
    3) I would also commandeer clothing for kids in September who didn’t want to go back to school because Mom & Dad couldn’t afford decent gear. Not Brand Name just DECENT. So, to make sure my younger Brothas ain’t drop out of school to play a corner, I laced them too. And for my younger sisters who would get caught up in that Pregnancy/ Stripping Matrix, I’d provide tuition assistance. Why, ’cause I’ve been blessed like that. Once again I ain’t rich- PERIOD. But I do make a Great living. I have no seeds of my own, so I like to help others with theirs. I feel like the only reason God blesses us is to bless others. Follow me?
    4) I don’t pay tithes so that another man can get a Cadi and some Gators. Instead, I help buy food for the church mission so that they can feed the poor and Homeless. Sometimes, on my days off, I’ll cook and serve. Still with me?
    5) Around the Holidays gets real hectic for me. Anyone who knows anything about the Industry knows that time is of the essence. But I try to get to the Seniors home and decorate. Many of them don’t have relatives who care, and it really lifts their spirits. Me personally, I never knew my Grand Parents, so it’s good for me too. See How I Do? I’m A Multi-Tasking Heifer. lol.
    But I do What I Can, When I Can. I ain’t perfect. I’m no Mother Theresa. And I don’t expect Jigga to be Ghandi. I guess I’m just asking the same from him that’s all. That’s All I Ask Of All Of Them- DO WHAT YOU CAN. Maybe I’m jumping the gun. Maybe the $2500 is a gateway to bigger and better things for those kids. But … I’m still entitled to my opinion. We all are and that’s what we’re here for. Different Inputs and Outlooks will get us where we need to go. If we all thought and spoke the same, these blogs wouldn’t be as interesting. Wouldn’t you agree?

    THAT DUDE:

    Douche Bags? That wasn’t At All Necessary. If you have a point, then make it. Be a Man and take a Stand, and lets get it in like Two Real Adults. But resorting to the name calling is Irrational & Juvenile. Save it for skinheadbob.

    VIC167:

    I Can Only speak for myself on this one. I Do Not HATE, nor am I JEALOUS of Jay-Z. I am proud of His Accomplishments. BKLYN STAND UP! His Accomplishments fostered My Accomplishments. Because of Dude and others like him, I am a Self-Sufficient Independent Black Woman making it happen for herself and writing Her OWN ticket. Yet, I am STILL entitled to My Opinion (Nothing GOSPEL, just an Opinion) and I was making an Observation.

    Just A Woman’s Perspective.

    P.S.- “Capitalist Nigger”, I WILL Be picking that up KILLERMK. Thanx.
