Possibly a reference to the quote in Jay-Z’s Billboard cover story about how successful his PR-campaign with Samsung has been.
“I realized the tides had shifted when I saw CNN the next day and six minutes of every hour was dedicated to coverage of Jay-Z and Samsung,” says Marcie Allen, president of MAC Presents and an 18-year veteran of music sponsorships. “If I had gotten coverage for six minutes on CNN of my Green Day-Nokia deal, I would be retiring on a yacht somewhere. That just doesn’t happen.”
