Jay-Z launches new web site

Jay-Z launches new web site

A hip-hop version of Gwyneth Paltrow's "GOOP."

Or at least close to it. That's what Rolling Stone seems to think of Jay-Z's new lifestyle web site Life + Times.

The site is a mixture of items about fashion, sports, style, music, leisure and technology.

There's very little linking the site to the superstar rapper other than his partially obscured pic on the front page, snippets of his music over some of the video's and a link titled "Jay's" which as of Thursday contained only a lovely shot of a sunset (or maybe a sun rise as it's hard to tell.)

The comparison between Life + Times and Paltrow's lifestyle newsletter "GOOP" makes sense given that Paltrow and her hubby musician Chris Martin are best-ies with the rapper and his wife Beyonce.

    Some of these comments are so stupid and have nothing to do with Jay's website. First, Beyonce could have fallen in love with Jay because of his personality and not his money. Besides, she has her own money. Have you ever seen him on a talk show? Dude has a great personality! He is actually funny and has a sense of humor. As an artist, I do believe that you should not stifle yourself. Yea, he has money, but so what. There are so many other artistic elements in this universe. I think it is great that Jay is utilizing this type of platform. No shade here. Jay's TRUE followers will continue to support him. All you others can move around.

    Why some people cant "hate" without opening there mouths didnt jay z make a record some people hate? i think y'all lost ya mind. i dont know too many peeps who came as far as jay did to become a major player at the corporate table. he is an inspiration to millions wether u get the picture or not. how many so called drug dealers, bad rappers, school dropouts, with no talent make descions like jay? alot of u have 99 problems

    Jay Z is the greatest rapper of all time. He is a flawless business man but he is also a good example of what greed can get for you. That is not a role model. A role model is an artist who uses the music to uplift the people on a deeper level. Not money, cash, hoes and big pimpin. He has songs that deal with real human issues and I applaud him for that. But the materialism has got to stop. Thats not what life should be about.

    Well I've never been a big fan of Jigga and his music but facts are facts. This guy does have the midas touch when it comes to several avenues in life. How ever he does it isn't so much the issue. The issue is that he does it! Dude has put in some serious work, blood, sweat and tears into everything. Not everything was a stunning success but more ventures were than not. You don't have to like him but you can't take away his hard work and dedication. Nobody gets to be this big, relevant, talked about by having it handed to them.

    Jay-Z keep doing your thing! I will continue not to be a fan of your music but I will also continue to be a fan of your hard work, sleepless nights, intelligence and dedication no matter if it is sucking dumb people in to buy a product or stepping on someone in business to get to the top. Remember it's easier to get rich than it is to stay rich and on top of the mountain when there are thousands of others trying to knock ya off the top! Just my 2cents!

    I feel that jay -z is a great business mind that many people may have mixed emotions about when it comes to his decisions on certain projects. all i have to say to those people how can you say what he is capable of and try to put limits on it. who are to crticize mr. sean carter who has milion dollar sales in this hip hop industry from top selling albums to owning a bbasketball team to nightclubs , clothing lines and the list goes on. let mr. carter embark on this new business venuture without you questiong him. he is a grown wealthy man who has experience in the business world and still continues to be successful. mr. carter retired from the rap game a while back and when he came back he was still on top. one word to say priceless. don't jay-z hustle because you can't. i have followed his career from his earlier career all the way up until the present. dont hate this successful man. be supportive. jay z i am your ultimate numero uno fan.

    After reading the article and some of its comments. I have to say I have seen some of very dumb comments from both sides. Ive seen people say things racism will stop if black people stop sagging. Other comments saying he is living Kings Dream. Honestly the guy is just a very good business man. A very good business man only care about one thing HIS BUSINESS. He can rap very well. Is he talking about anything? Not really he can just speak very well. He is building a website not a foundation that could help one of his YOUNG listeners make money like he is. Or teach them that it is more to life than just MONEY, but that would be too much like right. Honestly their are other things to worry about right now other than what a celebrity is doing...LIKE OUR PERSONAL LIVES

They don't represent white America; they pick at scabs. When "playtime" is over, they go out with their ethnic friends. Of course its not right; but neither are they discriminating, nor letting something they read on the internet poison their minds enough to go out and be a dick IRL

      Nas is so much better J cannot touch NAS lyrically. Just like India Arie can write, play an instrument and sing yet Beyonce sings whatever somebody writes and she is a huge mega star making more money than India. The reason Americans love trash and glorify trash. The people on here defending J are so blind they have bought into the pic the Publicist are paid to create. Its so sad how there are so many jaded people out here and they really look up to J like he is unique or something to be celebrated. That is not what he is at all. Yes he is rich but he is not a musical genius nor is he a big deal maker at all. Dame Dash was behing Roc not J.

    Other than a kicken body, bot sure what a man as intelligent as JayZ sees in Beyonce..but to each his own. He's not easy on the eyes by many standards, including mine, but the substance of his genius and style more than make up for what he lacks in looks. For those who disagree, well, I'm in the minority about the whole cult of Beyonce hype, so I must respect your opinion, too.

    Jay isn't talented. That proves your knowledge of his music career is zero. The guy walks around a room bobbing his head to a beat for 45 or so minutes and boom – no pen, no paper he has a hit that if nothing else flows. Even if you don't feel his style, that is an artist and a talent. Anyone who says he should retire must not appreciate the unique gift he has to have over ten albums of music memorized without any wasted paper. He is a natural if there ever was one. And one more thing – until we learn to leave racism where it belongs – in the past – none of us deserve the freedoms we take for granted. Our brothers and sisters are dying for us in other countries. The least we can do is try to make them as proud as they make us by growing together as a united population. Our elders have reason to hold opinions so silly, but we have no excuse. I am tired of being embarrassed not of my color but of my race. Surprise yourself and others and rise above something. It feels alot better at the top.

      That explains the lack of substance in his music that's all that proves. A 5 yr old can listen to music and make up words that rhyme JZ is not a musician nor is he a genius. He has made millions but so has the person that came up the Post-It Note, I don't think that's equivalent to vaccine for polio. In other words this is America ppl become millionares off of selling ish literally. Let's not make it more than what it really is, J is rich from selling ish.

    Better to have him make a website than have anything to do with music. He's always been a no-talent hack.

      No talent hack? Do you really listen to rap/hip-hop or are you just making statements that have no substance?

      @Doesitmatter: Of course I like rap – just never liked JayZ. He's better behind the camera. And because you don't agree with me doesn't mean my comments have no substance. What an ego you have! No wonder you like JayZ.

      This man has set a tone or definetion of what hip hop should be from Vol 1, until till now and until he can reach each and every person. I say, "leave em'(her) in the cold with a thin sweater" Jay Z.

    To the above comment-
    Have you listened to a Jay Z song off of his current album BP3? There is plent y of substance, relevance,and true genius to his music even now. Glad you portray yourself as a music expert but leave it just that, the experts to determine if his music is relevant. I bet he wins a grammy or two, remember that!

    Talk about rant. I don't think any of that last post had the least bit to do with a website that may or may not be linked to Jay Z. Someone must have had a bad day.

    This is why rappers who become filthy rich entrepreneurs should just stop rapping. I thought it was a very wise decision for him to retire. He was on top of his game. When he came back, I was disgusted. How many more songs can you make about popping bottles or glorifying yourself and your city? After the hustling, the struggles and the come-up, you really need to bring something of substance to the table to stay relevant as an artist. The same material gets very monotonous after a while. You can't gauge true success and credibility by record sales. I think he should just focus on his nightclubs, vodka, jewelry ads, producing, etc. It's not that he's lost his touch as a lyricist. It's just that it doesn't make sense anymore.

      Then don't buy it. He makes more sense than 95% of these other guys. Calm down and focus on your goals in life.

      I disagree mr. chris. once a rapper always a rapper, and jay-z is one of those rappers you wont get tired of listening to. He does not only talk about money he talks about other subject matters to. Do you remeber what he said on the first blue print album? He said " Do you fools listen rap music or do you just skim thre it" However, these rappers out now are garabage, im glad jay-z is still in the game!!! My advice to you is really sit down and listen to a jay'z album then hopefully you might change your mind! Or i guess you like listening to wacka floca, gucci man and all those other corney rappers.
