Having been close friends with popular and successful rapper Jay-Z for over two decades, Juan Perez, who runs the entertainer’s Roc Nation Sports division at his company, was recently thrown an over-the-top party for his 50th birthday. Before the night was over, Jay-Z had spent over $110,000 on all of the festivities, which included a lobster, steak and sushi dinner that cost $13,000, and alcoholic drinks that ended up costing $9,000. Keeping in line with sparing no expense, the friends and their entourage moved on to the Playroom Nightclub, where another $91,000 was spent.
Juan Perez was first introduced to the rap mogul in 1996 through the co-founder of Roc-A-Fella Records, Kareem Burke. Afterwards, the two formed an instant bond that not only led to a lasting friendship, but a business partnership as well. Over the years, Juan and Jay-Z have opened up a number of sports bars and nightclubs like the 40/40 Club in New York, and others in places such as Atlanta, Las Vegas, Brooklyn and Atlantic City, and the former baseball player, whose wife Dez Perez also works at Roc Nation as its CEO, has managed to sign professional athletes like NBA player Kevin Durant and NFL member Victor Cruz on as Roc Nation Sports clients.
Born and raised in Harlem, New York, Juan Perez grew up to pursue a career in sports, later realizing his dream of becoming a pro baseball player. Because of his love for the game, and for sports in general, he was considered to be one of the best choices to head up Roc Nation’s sports division. The birthday celebration that his friend Jay-Z, aka Shawn Carter, recently threw for him didn’t end until the early morning hours of the following day, no doubt making it one of the most memorable and expensive parties he has ever been given.
