Rap mogul Jay-Z reportedly spent around $350,000 on his wife, R&B superstar Beyonce Knowles for this year’s holiday season.
Details on Young Hov’s spending landed online the day after Christmas.
Beyonce got some sweet gifts yesterday. Her husband, Jay-Z, was spotted shopping at Hermes’ plush Madison Avenue boutique on Christmas Eve. A spy reports, “Jay was in a private room of Hermes doing last-minute shopping. He had a guard standing watch outside. He spent $350,000 on Birkin bags, among other things.” The buying binge took so long, Jay-Z missed his scheduled lunch at Nello, prompting the restaurateur to deliver his food to the store. Jay-Z has plenty to spend — he’s getting $1 million to perform at the opening of the Cosmopolitan hotel and casino in Vegas on New Year’s Eve. His rep declined to comment. (New York Post)
Over the weekend, Jay spent time with his friend, music executive Steve Stoute.
After touring with U2 in Australia, Jay-Z returned back home to New York for the holidays. He caught up with his friend, music executive Steve Stoute, and chef of Italian restaurant Nello’s at Hermes on Christmas Eve. Mr. Carter, keeping warm in a plaid scarf and leather jacket, got in some last minute shopping at the designer boutique, taking a moment to celebrate the season. (Rap-Up)
This Christmas season, Paul Wall spoke to SOHH about his three biggest wishes from Santa Claus.
One thing I want this year is a belt. I think my wife actually got me this Louis Vuitton belt with these matching glasses too, so that’s something I’ve really been wanting. A second wish, I’d say my son loves these Star Wars toys. More than anything else in this world. So I would put some Star Wars movies, action figures, everything as my second wish. Last thing I would want for Christmas, and I stay pretty content, but maybe a couple ounces of that California kush, then I’d be good.” (SOHH)
New York rapper Saigon got a bit deeper and wished he could uplift black people and have another conversation with his late mother.
“If I could have any big wish, it would be that everyone would be honest with me all the time. That would be my first wish. Santa Claus, please. Nobody else’s truths matter. There’s certain people in my life that I need their truths. Number two would be, well, I’d wish for black people to go and support Haitians more. I want the whole rap community to show support instead of just one day. They’re doing worse than they were doing when the earthquake hit [earlier this year] right now. That’s a constant struggle…Another big wish would be to bring my mother back to life. My mother died and I know we all die but if I could have one more conversation with my mother and I knew she was going to die, I’d be 20 times a stronger man that what I am today. And I already consider myself one of the strongest…” (SOHH)
