JAY-Z Sent $40,000 Rolex Watches as VIP Passes to His Shawn Carter Foundation Gala
JAY-Z, hip-hop’s first billionaire, didn’t spare on any expense when it came to inviting VIP guests to his inaugural Shawn Carter Foundation Gala. Instead of standard passes to his special guests, Hov upped the ante sending Rolex watches as VIP passes.
Meek Mill and Swizz Beatz revealed the luxe invites on their Instagram stories. Meek showed off the extravagant timepiece and wrote: “Hov sent these as VIP passes SMH this rich shit getting out of control.” While Swizz shared a photo of the Rollie alongside a bottle of champagne from JAY’s brand Ace of Spades, alongside the caption: “Hov is on another level with the invite game. It came with a Daytona Rolex and a bottle of Ace.” The gifted Rolex watches are valued at an estimated $40,000.
