    Believe

    I think that Jay-Z should continue there callabration with Barney’s for a couple of reasons. The first reason is because maybe they were good friends and he got alot of discounts from his behavior. If he kept it he would help cancer and make sure they was good and help.

    Doubt

    Jay-Z should not callabrate with Barneys for a couple of reasons. The first reason is that he wouldnt have nice clothes to put on his kids. Also if he didnt hes just saying he that he dosent need Barneys and he has enough money to take care of his family.
