Jay Z Bumps NASCAR Driver Dale Earnhardt, Jr. To Roc Nation SportsJune 13th, 2013
“Before today, I never spoke to a black person, so this is pretty exciting. This is something I can scratch off my bucket list.” ~Dale Earnhardt, Jr.
According to Dale Earnhardt, Jr., when it comes to sports, “Jay Z is where it’s at”. The famed NASCAR driver said just that after recently singing to Roc Nation Sports Agency.
Here’s what Dale Earnhardt, Jr. told the Sports Pickle website:
“I feel like my brand is well-known among NASCAR fans, but I want it to grow beyond stock car racing. And Jay-Z is where it’s at right now.
I am excited to work with him and the good folks at Roc Nation.”
Here’s what Jay Z had to say to those who have dubbed his relationship with Dale Earnhardt, Jr. “an odd match”:
“Why? Why would you say that? I think I know why you’re saying that. I aim to make Roc Nation the premier sports agency. This is legitimate.
You can’t pigeonhole me to just black athletes in the three major sports. You might want to, but you can’t. My partnership would be far more successful than the recent hip hop and country collaboration between LL Cool J and Brad Paisley.”
