Music mogul Jay Z is making it a cold winter all year long. The hip-hop mogul’s alleged jewelry box has surfaced online.
This weekend, an image of Young Hov’s prized diamond collection landed across social media pages.
The rap heavyweight has kept busy as of late making news for a new film project with actor Lin-Manuel Miranda called “In The Heights.”
The Weinstein Company’s Harvey Weinstein, who is producing the movie musical with theatre producer Scott Sanders, announced the news at his February 26 pre-Oscars party, which included a medley of tunes from In the Heights performed by Cynthia Erivo, Christopher Jackson, and Corbin Bleu and introduced by Hamilton’s Miranda. Deadline.com reported in September 2016 that Jay Z and Weinstein had “signed an exclusive first-look deal … to generate movies and scripted and unscripted TV.” (Playbill)
The Jigga Man is also expected to take the stage at next summer’s annual V Festival.

Recent reports surfaced about Young Hov linking with longtime business partner Jay Brown to launch a venture capital fund.
The pair also is scouring the venture market for a full-time investment partner. The “Jays” also are partnering with Sherpa Capital, although this won’t be a Sherpa-branded effort, and existing Sherpa staff won’t be leading investments. Expect the focus to be on seed-stage tech opportunities, with this really being the institutionalization of Jay Z and Jay Brown’s previous angel investing activities. (AXIOS)
