And the millionaire mogul (come on, billion) Shawn Carter, more aptly referred to as Jay-Z, continues to expand his ever-growing empire. The “best rapper alive” is in the works of bringing his famed 40/40 Club across the pond, to the London blokes.
The sports bar/club/nightspot is well-known within the United States and on any given night is a who’s who amongst celebrities. Already having locations in New York and Atlantic City, Jay has teamed with English soccer player Ashley Cole in providing the English people with yet another nighttime hot spot.
“London is one of the most vibrant and exciting cities in the world and the perfect location for our new venue,” Jay-Z said in a recent statement regarding the venture. “I’m excited about working with Ashley and NVA Entertainment Group on a range of new projects and the 40/40 London is going to be the hottest place in town.”
Currently, the grand opening is slated for some time next year — a celebrity soiree to the likes of which none of us regular folk have ever seen. I can guarantee that.
The club will then regularly feature some of the world’s most renowned DJs, artists, and other forms of live entertainment as the forthcoming transition will no doubt place another check in Jay-Z’s “win” column.
Now the only thing that’s left for us to worry about — is how to get that exclusive invite. Good luck, all.Tags: 40/40 Club, Ashley Cole, Jay-Z
