jayzyankees NJ Nets Who??? Jay Z Reps Yankees Apparel

Remember back in the day when Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, Eazy-E and the whole NWA crew sported Raiders hats and gear? Well….The New York Yankees have taken their relationship with Jay-Z to a whole new level…

After adopting the rap mogul’s “Empire State of Mind” as its unofficial anthem last fall, the ballclub has now teamed with its No. 1 fan to sell co-branded clothing that will only be available at Yankee Stadium for a limited time beginning next week.

All the items, from baseball caps to T-shirts and hooded sweat shirts, will feature Yankees and Jay-Z logos, reports the Associated Press.

In a news release Thursday, the Yankees said the attire was created to commemorate the first official concerts at the new Yankee Stadium on Sept. 13 and 14, when Jay-Z and Eminem will co-headline.

The shows mark the second half of their “Home and Home” tour, following joint performances at Detroit’s Comerica Park on Sept. 3 and Sept. 4.

The new merchandise will be available at Yankee Stadium from Aug. 30 to Sept. 14.
