This Bud's For Jay-Z

10/19/2006 7:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jay-ZJay-Z has traded in his Cristal for some Budweiser.

The rapper, who recently revealed he would no longer support Cristal after one of the brand's execs made statements Jay-Z found to be racist, is joining forces with Anheuser-Busch to become the new co-brand director for Budweiser Select.

Jay-Z will sit in on development sessions and give his marketing expertise to the St. Louis based beverage company.

The music mogul, who recently came out of "retirement," already appears in a Bud Select commercial that aired earlier this week.

Cristal--Beer= Perfect fit for hyped up trash like him. Beyonce need to dump this loser fast, I can't wait to hear his new album it'll show that even though he's wearing suits now. He's just a ghetto thug with ghetto mentalities that hurt the community. Why can't she find a respected black man with class.

Definitely a good move for Anheuser Busch. Featuring Jay-Z, Dale Earnhardt Jr, Danica Patrick and other stars that are hot right now is a good marketing strategy. It trumps Miller, which has some funny commercials, but to be honest it's filled with a bunch of has beens.

First of all Jay-Z is an entertainer. Entertainers get talked about. If God came to me and ask me to trade places with that ugly fu**k I would say no thank you.

He's the ugliest man in the world Beyonce and Jay's kids will be comical. There's no saving the kids like Russell and Kimora. Russell just aged a little you can tell he was handsome just look at Run from Run-DMC. But Jay-Z.

He's just someone you love to bring down because he's an undercover thug, trashy, no respect for women, Biggie idolizing, inarticulate, out of shape, pathetic loser. And just like JANET JACKSON---BEYONCE needs to think about what man she links herself to. You want the world to respect you not laugh behind your back. Money doesn't= real respect. So please list why ANYONE would be jealous of Jay-Z. He even got confused because Beyonce might be famous with her fans, but in real life industry guys weren't busting down the doors for her, she's extremely shy and wack in real life.
