It looks like Jay Z is trying to make a run for Dr. Dre’s throne. Hov just purchased the company that produces Armand de Brignac, also known as Ace of Spades champagne. A bottle of the expensive bubbly retails for around $300.
The rapper acquired the brand from New York-based Sovereign Brands, which announced the sale this week.
“We are proud to announce that Sovereign Brands, a New York-based wine and spirits company owned by the Berish family, has sold its interest in the Armand de Brignac (‘Ace of Spades’) Champagne brand to a new company led by the globally-renowned Shawn ‘Jay Z’ Carter,” the company said in a statement.
Just how much Jigga paid for the brand is unknown, but a spokesperson for Sovereign told the New York Times the rapper “made us an offer we simply couldn’t refuse.”
From Gangsta To Gospel … Snoop Dogg Shuts Down Critics Of His Spiritual Album
Who says a gangsta rapper can’t drop a gospel album — apparently, the critics.
Snoop Dogg released his spiritual effort, Bible Of Love, today and unfortunately some folks just don’t understand why. Thankfully, we talked to Uncle Snoop and he let the haters know they won’t be dulling his shine.
“My spirit is in the right place,” Snoop proclaimed, “so for those who have backlash or something to say, their spirit ain’t right.” But Unc didn’t stop there, he went on a preached a word right quick … “I thought the Bible said Jesus was in the streets mixing it up with the real, bringing the real back to the fold.” Yep, yep, that’s exactly right!
But just because he has a gospel album doesn’t mean Snoop ain’t still street. “I come from the hood and I come from the church so they can’t out do me,” he reminded us.
Do you agree with The Doggfather’s message?
