EXCLUSIVE: Jay-Z Talks With YBF About Business

​ ​ ​ ​
Jay-Z and Lisa Price shout out TheYBF.com--Watch in HD here.

Jay-Z was here in D.C. all week and TheYBF.com had the fabulous opportunity to have a one-on-one in-person chat with Mr. Shawn Carter himself.  YBF is the only celebrity entertainment site asked to chit chat with Mr. Carter at the Pentagon City Carol's Daughter store opening.  We also chatted with Carol's Daughter founder Lisa Price.  And here's what Mr. Carter had to say about his investment ventures with the Carol's Daughter brand: Natasha: Jay, what drew you to the Carol's Daughter brand and made you become an investor? Jay-Z:  I wasn't drawn to the brand for products initially.  But what drew me to the brand was way back when [Steve] Stoute and Lisa had their first meeting to dream all of this up.  I happened to be riding by and I was introduced to Lisa.  Her story was so incredible.  You know, somebody who started making products out of her own home and to see where she is right now. It's a wonderful thing. Natasha: Which products are you using and which does your wife [Beyonce] love and use? Jay-Z: I was drawn to the story of how the Blue Ocean...or Ocean...[leans over and laughs to Lisa asking what the exact name is]...yeah, Ocean.  That's MY favorite.  As for anybody else's favorite--you would have to ask them. [laughs] Natasha: I mean, you HAVE to know your wife's favorite. You have to know what you would buy her as a gift. Jay-Z: [smiles] I mean, I guess it's my favorite.  So I would buy her my favorite.  I mean, I love them all.  [turns to Lisa] That's why you need to come on over to the house and outfit the whole thing with products. [laughs] I'm trying to get her to come over and really...outfit everything.  Because even when you just smell the store, the fragrances just sit there.  It's good. [Lisa tells him she has some face wash products she really wants him to try that she knows he would love.] Natasha: So can we get one piece of advise for Barack Obama that has nothing to do with politics? Jay-Z and Lisa: Wow...wow.  Good question! [laughs] Jay-Z: You need to let Lisa come and outfit the White House with this whole thing.  And get his "situation" smooth.  [laughs]  Michelle's gonna need that.

Geez![/quote] Thank you! Obama loves his wife and lets the WORLD know[/quote] But everybody is different...I love Obama and Michelle but just because they do something doesn't mean thats how it has to be done. Both couples are successful, yes, definitely on different levels and just like if I had a man and if you had a man, but yours expressed his love in public and mines didn't vice versa doesnt mean one loves less... (dont take it personal I love ya beautifuldaidreamer)[/quote] I feel what you're saying. And I'm not asking for Bey and Jay to be slobbin each other down in public. But what's wrong with a lil acknowledgment? Why so secretive? Hell, you're right. They don't have to be on the Obamas level, but if my man was being interviewed I definitely wouldn't want him to be like, "I can't answer for anybody" when the interviewer was asking SPECIFICALLY bout me. I'm not anybody, I'm your damn wife! (Love you too S&J ;) lol )[/quote] True, I agree with you but maybe they have a understanding that we (the public) will never understand...F.Y.I I think everybody wants a man like Barack, he looks at Michelle like he sees a new day ♥[/quote] Oh girl I mos definitely want me a Barack. But you know, I am curious as to what his flaws are. He just seems so perfect overall, but you know him and Michelle probably don't see eye to eye on EVERYthing lol[/quote] Michelle looks like she'll cuss his ass if need be...Remember HE went after her, she wasnt even trying to get with him at first...and it shows now...she obviously loves him, but you can tell who runs that relationship...[/quote] I think he put it on her, something good(That an a Harvard Degree)!! Cause a man wit a hole in the front of his car floor would have gotten the side eye![/quote] See how us women are....we would have gave the man a side eye, not knowing 20 years later he would be the president....and been mad as hell Tuesday cause you would have missed out on your chance.... sometimes we gotta look past the material things...cause you never know what you might get if you do![/quote] so true. After hearing that story, I tightened up...I'll talk to a man with goals, dreams and getting his education on, he may not have a nice vehicle but if he hold me down Ill hold him, unforunately I havent found him yet..

I quit getting relaxers in 07 and the advice of my stylist. I just get my hair ironed out with a ceramic iron, and I wear it straight and long.[/quote] I love not having a relaxer. I haven't relaxed my hair in 6 months and I love how healthy my is now. My stylist does a great job cuz she has natural hair too, so she knows how to take care of my hair. I'm a dummy when it comes to hair care :([/quote] I am too, so I don't even bother with that. I let the pros do their job. My stylist promotes healthy natural hair, and she's my cousin :P[/quote] I am a dummy when it comes to hair care too. Thats why I'm asking ya'll for advice, along with my stylist. My hair was most likely over-processed and was thinning. So, I stopped getting relaxers. My last one was back in May. Wow, didn't realize its been months. But anyway---I find it hard to maintain a press-n-curl. I prefer my hair super bone straight. I find that I'm putting more heat to it now :( However, its thicker and healthier. I'm thisclose to getting another relaxer, but my stylist does not recommend it. I have no plans to actually wear my hair natural by the way. LOL my friend asked me the other day what my true texture was. My response: ni99a nappy.

Geez![/quote] Thank you! Obama loves his wife and lets the WORLD know[/quote] But everybody is different...I love Obama and Michelle but just because they do something doesn't mean thats how it has to be done. Both couples are successful, yes, definitely on different levels and just like if I had a man and if you had a man, but yours expressed his love in public and mines didn't vice versa doesnt mean one loves less... (dont take it personal I love ya beautifuldaidreamer)[/quote] I feel what you're saying. And I'm not asking for Bey and Jay to be slobbin each other down in public. But what's wrong with a lil acknowledgment? Why so secretive? Hell, you're right. They don't have to be on the Obamas level, but if my man was being interviewed I definitely wouldn't want him to be like, "I can't answer for anybody" when the interviewer was asking SPECIFICALLY bout me. I'm not anybody, I'm your damn wife! (Love you too S&J ;) lol )[/quote] True, I agree with you but maybe they have a understanding that we (the public) will never understand...F.Y.I I think everybody wants a man like Barack, he looks at Michelle like he sees a new day ♥[/quote] Oh girl I mos definitely want me a Barack. But you know, I am curious as to what his flaws are. He just seems so perfect overall, but you know him and Michelle probably don't see eye to eye on EVERYthing lol[/quote] Michelle looks like she'll cuss his ass if need be...Remember HE went after her, she wasnt even trying to get with him at first...and it shows now...she obviously loves him, but you can tell who runs that relationship...[/quote] I think he put it on her, something good(That an a Harvard Degree)!! Cause a man wit a hole in the front of his car floor would have gotten the side eye!
