Jay-Z and Warren Buffet

Jay-Z Celebrates 40/40 Club Reopening with Warren Buffett, Ashanti

He may be filling baby bottles at home these days, but Jay-Z was back to popping bottles of Ace of Spades on Wednesday night (Jan. 18). The Roc Nation boss snuck out for his first public appearance since becoming a father at the grand reopening of his 40/40 nightclub in New York City.

Ashanti, Wale, Swizz Beatz, Rico Love, ?uestlove, Adrienne Bailon, Grandmaster Flash, Selita Ebanks, Irv Gotti, and Fabolous were among the VIP guests who came out to celebrate with Mr. Carter. A crowd gathered outside the venue to congratulate Blue Ivy Carter’s dad, who responded, “Thank you!”

Even billionaire Warren Buffett, who shared the cover of Forbes with the hip-hop mogul, was seen throwing up the Roc. But despite rumors of an appearance, new mom Beyoncé was a no-show, opting to stay at home with their newborn daughter while her husband walked the red carpet and greeted well-wishers.

The sports club underwent a multi-million dollar renovation that includes four 165-inch video screens and gold bats lining the walls.
