So no one doubts that Jay-Z is an economic powerhouse. He's influenced the worldwide champagne market, convinced people to spend actual money on Nets merch, and single-handedly influenced my decision to buy a pair of blue-tinted aviator sunglasses in 1999 by simply wearing a pair in a photo shoot. So I most definitely share the anxiety evident in Mark Olson's Chaska Herald column on Jay's new video for "Blue Magic" which prominently features Hova flashing a thick wad of Euros. Euros, dude. That's a bad look for the U.S. economy. I hope to hear an Alan Greenspan response track within the week.
