Jay-Z links up with Yankees for merchandise... and Kanye for an EP?
Jay-Z is teaming up with his favorite baseball squad the Yankees on co-branded clothes that will be sold exclusively at Yankee Stadium beginning next week, according to a release. All the items, from baseball caps to T-shirts and hooded sweat shirts, will feature Yankees and Jay-Z logos.
In a news release Thursday, the Yankees said the attire was created to commemorate the first official concerts at the new Yankee Stadium on Sept. 13 and 14, when Jay-Z and Eminem will co-headline. The shows mark the second half of their "Home and Home" tour, following joint performances at Detroit's Comerica Park on Sept. 3 and Sept.
The new merchandise will be available at Yankee Stadium from Aug. 30 to Sept. 14.
And it seems Hov hasn't busied himself with just that. Kanye West has claimed -- via Twitter, naturally -- that he and Jay-Z will be releasing a five-song album called "Watch the Throne." Jigga recently added a verse to 'Ye's "Power," as part of West's new G.O.O.D. Friday initiative. No further details have been released, but, then again: it's only Friday. He has a whole weekend to Tweet.
