Jay has teamed up with manufacturer Skullcandy to create his 149-dollar Roc Nation Aviator headphones, which will be available in brown, white and black. The “DOA” rapper discussed his new business venture saying, quote, “Our passion is creating amazing music. We’re dedicated to delivering the best in live performances.
