T.J. Maxx Gives Jay-Z Moment Of Clarity

[tweet https://twitter.com/tjmaxx/status/226352044963942403]

“Used to shop at T.J. Maxx back in ’83, I don’t even know if it was open then…”

Attention T.J. Maxx shoppers, hours after Jay-Z’s “3 Kings” verse hit the ‘net, the department store responded via their Twitter account that they opened in 1977. Popping tags 35 years strong.

I’m in your ugly mothers fanclub, not yours…. Shoutout to Gov, Slow down Hov you killin’ em!

  • http://Www.Breakawaybeats.com Breakaway

    When I first heard it, I thought he meant not open hours wise, as in “shopping” (stealing) when the store was closed.. would be mad funny if that’s what he meant and they gave him a s/o

  • bry from boston

    I though he just meant he shopped there when he was young in 83, and now at Hermes, nothing to do with when they opened

  • bry from boston

    Did I mention that the only reason that i’m mentioning mac DIESEL is because I am jealous and got caught by Chris Hanson I really look like John Cena but built like JJ evans and wear G unit shoes with Fubu shirts and live in a trailer park.

  • bry from boston

  • JustMyOpinion

    @ Spirit
    The point is he shopped so MANY places, he can’t remember ONE spot.

  • JustMyOpinion

    Did anyone else think about: at least someone from (or connected) T.J. Maxx is paying attention to rap culture? That’s bigger than the tweet.

  • macDISEL

    Not surprised, every race likes Hov

  • ZoomZoomDad-Otis

    William L. Roberts cant catch a break. No hit single for his new album. Now Jay-Z is taken his shine. DEF JAM wasting $$$ like always on this dude.

  • Rap is worldwide

    Rap is worldwide plus the internet is crazy you can post something on a site or twitter or facebook plus Jay-Z is the biggest name in hip hop now and his words are listened too, I remember this nigga talking about Mr. Red Bottoms himself Christian Louboutin all the way back on the best of both worlds in 2002 here it is 2012 and everybody talks about it, no matter what you say about Jay-Z you can’t say his impact on pop culture isn’t there, he is one of the first if not the first on to endorse Maybach, platinum, Manolo Blanik,Christal,Ace of Spades, Hublot,and so on in hip hop.

  • Evil

    Yeah this was fucking news worthy….I like Jay Z too but people need to hop off his dick already.The verse he had was half good,i was more impressed by Dre to be honest.

  • bry from boston

    I am a dummy I forgot to change my name back to bry from boston when I pretended to be macDISEL… I forgot he always ends with

    DON

  • bry from boston

    Lol you got me

  • bry from boston

    I just don’t get why you hate much, unless you’re just like soicyboi from hiphopdx and just like pissin people off, you make rap look stupid brotha, just chill

  • Laughing at salty niggas

    @ Evil Why did you click on the story you salty ass nigga, I hate when people throw shade for the hell of it… Go wait on Detox or go watch the wash or something or go dust off “been there done that” and do the tango by yourself and put on Blackstreet featuring Dre when you’re done nigga… dead right

  • bry from boston

    Lol or pretend to be the trick dre picks up with the popsicle in the let me ride video lol

  • M.T

    Let me breakdown why this shit is newsworthy. Becacuse TJ Maxx the company, had to get at Hov over a throwaway line in a freestyle. I’m a little older than some so remember there was a time before Jay-z was the Man. Once upon a time Suge Knight was the man. and his name rang bells. He had power. A stable of the best Rappers and his own label (very rare at the time). Then Came Bad Boy,No Limit,Cash Money,Roc-a-fella,Shady/aftermath,g-unit etc, and so on and so forth. Each time with some nigga reppin’ either figurehead (baby), partner(Dame Dash), the head of the company (Diddy) or the rapper (DMX). They were the one with the highest profile or most power of the crew. Which at the time might get a newspaper to talk bad about you or become a target for a rival rapper or rap crew. Hov talks that big money talk ain’t nothing change but his tax bracket. He’s a rapper, a boaster. At least to my knowledge Jay-z’s big money talk been rubbing rappers the wrong way since Cam in ’99. Each year Hov would talk that money talk. But his Diamonds got clearer,more blue,cars more expensive, boasts bigger it would just rub more and more niggaz the wrong way. Niggaz who have said Fuck Jay-z (that I know or have heard of) Cam’ron, Jim Jones, Dehaven for cavin’, Dame Dash, Mobb Deep,beanie sigel, Fat Joe,tupac, Jaz-o,Joe budden,Dmx,Big L,Jadakiss,and of course Nas. Those were just the people in world of Hip Hop. Well one day Hov started getting to big to embarrass mobb deep,dis Joe Budden, or stab niggaz in the club. He grew. A couple years later he is the roc and is closing woodstock type size festivals over in Europe and beefing with Crystal and Oasis (much bigger dogs than anyone in hip hop-worldwide-the band not the champagne). That’s the point. These niggaz (Hip Hop) is still growing. It’s not a coincidence that the biggest grossing hip hop tour of ALLTIME!!! Just wrapped up with Watch the Throne. Listen when Kanye makes a song called Theraflu and the company gotta put out a statement Talkin’ ’bout we don’t know that nigga Kanye” That’s power. When Hov Talks about he can’t remember whenever the fuck year it was TJ Maxx opened up and the “COMPANY” got put out a statement talking about “Uhh actually it was 1977″ like that shit matters. That’s power.That’s is a level of power I’ve never seen before. There was that time The president got at Ice T but that was different. Bottom line. Jay-z has gone from hurting the feelings of bum rappers,grubby niggaz on the block in marcy to beefing with Corporations…Just wait until his album comes out.

  • NickeyNegrito

    @Blaxdon, that was on point. Basically there is no telling what Jays empire will become after he is long gone. But for now, witness history in the making, and feel appreciative that we are alive to see it. I feel you……i truly do.

  • Real Deal

    MMG is the Murda Inc of 2012, the fastest rising and falling of a label, don’t get me wrong, Ross can spit but he does not have that universal appeal like Jay, Wayne, Em and Kanye. It is true he cannot catch a break, 4 duds in row and when he finally gets a decent single, he get outshines by Jay-Z and Dr. Dre. Gimmicks can only last for too long.

  • bosshog

    He may be a gimmick but in this day and age, that can possibly open doors for an artist. yeah i know its a bunch of BS but its true, ross is definitely not on the level with the people you listed above, but he still can blow -up while making money in the process

  • abovetheclouds

    Not even gonna lie, I enjoy macDiesel’s comments. They crack me up, and a lot of the time i agree with them.

    DONT STOP, MY NIGGA

  • Itz Yourz

    That my friends? Is respect. The acknowledging of the respect he commands and can boost bussiness for you.TJMaxx know, thats why they said thank you first.

    Unlike cristal and other companies who didnt know how much power that nigga Jay mouthpiece has…they do know now, dont they. Ace of spades is in and your out(in our thing)…that simple that quick with just him saying it. He is an influnetial man, you would want him on your side.

    And TJ MAxx always kept you fly for less is a ture statement…Jay know…and everybody else who has shopped there.
