In attendance were Jay Z, Juan “OG” Perez, Desiree Perez, Roc Nation executives, Carter-Knowles; as mentioned previously, and other friends.
Juan “OG” Perez might have been aware of the fact that a lot of the money being spent that night was being spent on Jay Z’s own liquor and champagne brands; D’USSÉ Cognac at Made in Mexico and Ace of Spades. Not only did this put money right back into Jay Z’s pocket, but it also was great for advertising for his brands. Juan and Jay Z have been friends going back more than two decades, and he has even been mentioned in some of Jay Z’s songs. No one was surprised that Jay Z would go all out for the man’s birthday.
