Jay-Z always knows how to throw a great party, and he’ll celebrate the 18th anniversary of his 40/40 sports club in Manhattan with his personal VIP list.
Hova sent out custom-made, hourglass invitations to Diddy, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, Meek Mill, Lil Uzi Vert, Bobby Shmurda, Rapsody, Remy Ma and more to join him for the grand reopening of his club on August 28, according to The Source. The Roc Nation CEO is hiring 100 new staffers for the bi-level venue.
The name “40/40” represents the rare baseball achievement of hitting at least 40 home runs and stealing at least 40 bases in a single season. Only four MLB players — Barry Bonds, Alex Rodriguez, Jose Canseco and Alfonso Soriano — have accomplished the feat.
In 2012, Jay and Beyoncé hosted a fundraiser for President Barack Obama at 40/40 attended by 100 guests, which raised $4 million at $40,000 a ticket.
Jay-Z also owns 40/40 clubs at the Atlanta airport and Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Clubs in Atlantic City and Las Vegas are now closed.
