JAY-Z might have “99 Problems,” but spending $100K on a friend ain’t one. On Monday (Feb. 19), Young Hov splurged while celebrating the 50th birthday Roc Nation Sports president Juan “OG” Perez.
Page Six reports that Jigga spent more than $110,000 throughout Sunday night in New York. First, Hov, Juan, Roc Nation execs, and friends dined at upscale Japanese restaurant Zuma, where they spent a reported $13,000 on lobster, steak, and sushi. The group then made its way to Inwood hotspot Made in Mexico, splurging on $9,000 in drinks including JAY-Z’s own D’Ussé.
Finally, Shawn Carter and friends arrived at Playroom Nightclub, where they ordered a whopping 40 bottles Ace Spades, totaling up to $91,135 in champagne, including an $11,100 tip for the server, as seen in a social media-shared receipt. In total, Jigga reportedly spent $113,000 on Juan’s birthday.
S Dot has mentioned OG Juan throughout his discography, on songs like “Blue’s Freestyle/We Family,” “Brooklyn High,” “Do U Wanna Ride,” and “La Familia.” Jigga famously named Perez on “Empire State Mind,” as well, rapping: “Catch me at the X with O.G. at a Yankee game / Shit, I made the Yankee hat more famous than a Yankee can.”
While Mr. Carter was having fun in New York, Beyoncé and Blue Ivy were having a ball at the 2018 NBA All-Star Game in Los Angeles.
