We’ve got some good Roc Nation news. CNN commentator Van Jones just inked a deal with the Roc and Jay Z is coming out with a “Reasonable Doubt” capsule collection at Barneys. Deets inside…
Roc Nation is expanding its client base. The management firm just inked a deal with CNN commentator Van Jones. An unlikely client, but we definitely can see something impactful coming from the collaboration.
“The Messy Trust” host announced his affiliation with the management firm and expressed how excited he is to work with the company to help “make positive change in today’s world.”
The Yale-educated lawyer said:
“Roc Nation stands for excellence, innovation and impact, and I am proud to join the family. To make positive change in today’s world, we must close the gaps that exist between artists and activities…cultural leaders and political leaders…tastemakers and changemakers. This partnership opens up the opportunity to do that on a global scale. It’s bold, unprecedented move. And I’m both humbled and excited by the possibilities.”
We’re here for his new union. Although we had to give Van the side-eye when he started praising Trump for doing the bare minimum, we’re optimistic that he’ll bring some positive change.
Roc Nation honcho Jay Z also seems excited about the move saying:
“Van’s immense capacity for empathy builds bridges. He inspires dialogue and only through conversation and active listening, can true change occur. Roc Nation is honored to support and amplify every initiative.”

According to W magazine, the collection (which features men and women’s clothes) “includes all the sartorial staples of a New York hustle, but ranges in price from $235 to $4,000.”
In a written statement Hov said,“This capsule celebrates a time when we were dreamers.”
