On Tuesday afternoon, Mr. Carter sent out a number of VIP passes for the first annual Shawn Carter Foundation Gala.
The mission of the foundation is to help individuals facing socio-economic hardships and further their education at institutions of higher learning.
If there was any indication that Jay-Z valued the time of his guests, it was definitely shown through the invitations.
The lavish invites came with a Daytona Rolex and a bottle of Armand de Brignac champagne (Jay-Z’a brand aka Ace of Spades).
The Daytona Rolex retails from $12,400 for the 40 mm Oystersteel to $43,700 for the 40 mm Everose gold version. The price of Carter’s Ace of Spades champagne ranges from $300 to several thousand dollars.
Rappers Kasseem Dean, aka Swizz Beatz, Robert Rihmeek Williams, aka Meek Mill and Khaled Mohamed aka DJ Khalid all shared their VIP Rolex watch invites via Instagram Story.
The Shawn Carter Foundation Gala, which takes place Friday and Saturday at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida, will include a blackjack tournament in which Williams is set to participate and a performance by Grammy Award winner Alicia Keys.
