Jay-Z stars in first Rocawear commerical
(CBS News) Jay-Z is starring in the first-ever commercial for his clothing brand Rocawear. The commercial made its television debut on Monday during the NCAA championship game.
The commercial titled, "Marcy to Barclays," shows the ascent of the music mogul in the business and Rocawear's evolution. Brooklyn's Marcy Projects were where the rapper was raised and Barclays Center is the future arena for his NBA team, the Brooklyn Nets.
"Rocawear just keeps reinventing and redefining itself every single day," said Jay-Z in a statement. "My goal was to have one gold album and that was it, then it was I want to show that an artist can ascend to the executive ranks."
