Hey Jay-Z, Shut the F*ck Up About Duracell PowermatsPosted by Nathan S. on 06/12/12 | Filed under Features, Opinion, QuickHits, Jay-Z
I know what you're thinking. Jay-Z's only putting Duracell Powermat charging stations in all of his 40/40 clubs because Duracell is paying him enough money to buy a small Caribbean country. Oh, how wrong you are! Hova's actually invested in building the our nation's infastructure:
“I believe in the future of wireless energy and I believe that Duracell Powermat is the company to bring on the revolution,” Jay-Z said in a statement. “I’m partnering with Duracell Powermat because they’re providing the solutions for the future.”
See, Jay's not just depositing checks, he's leading a revolution! Viva la revolucion! Viva el Duracell Powermat! Viva el college fund de Blue Ivy Carter!
It's good to see Jay make the full transition from street hustler to corporate shill. You haven't really made it until you're issuing completely bullshit press releases about bullshit products. If the man can have Duracell stations set up at the Budweiser "Made in America" festival, he'll have achieved sponsorship nirvana.
