Bad news for Rocawear staff members.
Jay Z’s company has laid off half of their employees!
The rap mogul actually sold his company back in 2007 to Iconix Brand Group but he stayed on as a shareholder.
He’s also responsible for product development as well as marketing and licensing.
Unfortunately, the company blames the bad global economy for the loss of all those jobs.
They had to let go of 28 of their 56 employees.
Times are tough.

This seXXy couple knows how to celebrate Christmas, lol!!
While a baby's in the oven, Beyonce decided she could still paint the town red with her hubby. And why not!
So Bey and Jay-Z took their fabulous selves to W.I.P. Work in Progress at Greenhouse!
Jay sipped on his sizzurp all night long — Voli vodka. And Bey, naturally, didn't drink anything that could hinder the perfection of their god and goddess hybrid babeh.
Sigh. Lurve. Such a beautiful thing, isn't it??

C to the Artoon, S to the Eries!
We've just learned that Jay-Z has signed on to star in Hub TV network's upcoming cartoon series called Secret Millionaires Club (after the jump), in which he'll "offer financial advice to a group of young children."
Warren Buffett will also be featured on the animated series, as a business adviser.
Interesting concept! We'll be curious to see how many kid millionaires we'll have by the end of the first season! Ha!
Will U tune in for Secret Millionaires Club?
