Another Jay-Z news item, the Def Jam exec., newly appointed UN Goodwill Ambassador and Hip-Hop megastar, been quite busy lately. First, an Asian tour to celebrate he’s coming of retirement. Then, graced the cover of GQ as one of the magazine’s men of the year.
Freshness caught up with the rapper at the Taiwan leg of his tour late October. We also caught a glimpse of a one-of-the-kind gift from Hong Kong’s famed toy designer, Eric So, to Jay-Z. Encased in a beautifully stained wooden box, with a personalized message in front. The Jay-Z figurine stands close to a foot tall. Dressed in RBK S. Carter kicks and “U Never Try, U Never Know” motto t-shirt. The figurine also wore a miniaturized authentic Red Monkey Company (RMC) x Eric So selvage denim. Much thanks to Martin Yatming of RMC.
