In a statement posted on his website on Friday, Nov. 15, 2013, the entertainer said that he’s planning to move forward with his scheduled collaboration with Barneys New York despite allegations that black shoppers had been racially profiled at the high-end retailer.  The posting went on to state that he agreed to the launch of his BNY SCC collection under the condition he could serve on a newly-created council convened by the store to deal with racial profiling.

(TIME) — The man hardly ever tweets, so when he does, you can bet he’s feeling it.

Shawn Carter, a.k.a. Jay Z, doesn’t tweet very often, even though he has 3.16 million people there following his every word. Although he’s been on the social network since November 2008, he doesn’t follow anyone (not even his wife Beyoncé) and has only posted 231 times.

But with all the flak that his recently launched artist-owned music-streaming service Tidal is getting, the rap mogul finally felt the need to get on Twitter and counter all the haters.
