The Jay Z Boy Recliner
His so called "Retirement"? (image via philadelphiaweekly)
You can take the man out of the ghetto and turn him a high-powered CEO, but ... well ... Jay Z, who started the hip-hop boycott of Cristal, still operates under the sign of shiesty (Averted Gaze). According to Gatecrasher:
"Hip-hop mogul Jay-Z has an interesting way of making sure he stays on top � he's always a few inches above everybody else.
"The Def Jam president had all of the chairs in his office designed to be just slightly lower than his, according to an insider.
"'He wants to be able to look down on everyone around him,' says our source.
"'It's subtle but effective, we hear.'"
As subtle as an elephant passing gas, to be sure. (Exaggerated cough suggesting feigned detachment)
