Prior to New York Yankees’ Derek Jeter’s retirement from Major League Baseball, Jordan Brand has released an ad featuring several people tipping their cap to the shortstop.
Jay Z and Action Bronson are among several celebrities who tip their cap in the ad. Spike Lee, Phil Jackson, Jeanie Buss, Billy Crystal, Carmelo Anthony and Tiger Woods are among other people who appear in the ad, which is titled RE2PECT. The 2 is a reference to Jeter’s jersey number.

In 2009, Jay Z joined the New York Yankees on their World Series victory parade. That same year, Jeter said Jay Z’s “Empire State of Mind” was “special for all of New York.”
In July 2011, Jay Z filmed Derek Jeter’s 3,000th hit.
