Corporate Takeover Magazine just put up an article on Jay-Z’s S. Carter Enterprises that I suggest you check it out. It’s definitely worth the read. Click the above pic for a larger scaled one. “What you call ballin’ I pay more in taxes”
Looking towards the future, Carter’s current portfolio of business interests—which include the New Jersey Nets, 40/40 Club, beauty care line Carol’s Daughter, J hotels, Scion, LLC., and Translation Advertising—all seem to transcend the youth-driven hip-hop market. And that is to say, it’s unlikely the services provided by a firm like Translation Advertising are intended for fickle young hip-hop fans. By cashing in on the Jay-Z inc. franchise, Carter looks to make the transition from hip-hop star to a business celebrity, much like Rupert Murdoch, Donald Trump, Warren Buffet, and Magic Johnson.
