JAY-Z Sent $40,000 Rolex Watches as VIP Passes to His Shawn Carter Foundation Gala

JAY-Z, "hip-hop’s first billionaire," spared no expense when it came to inviting VIP guests to his inaugural Shawn Carter Foundation Gala. Instead of standard VIP passes, Jay-Z sent Rolex watches to his special guests.



Meek Mill and Swizz Beatz shared the invites on their Instagram stories. Meek Mill posted: “Hov sent these as VIP passes SMH this rich shit getting out of control.” While Swizz Beats shared a photo of the Rollie alongside a bottle of champagne from Jay’s brand Ace of Spades with the caption: “Hov is on another level with the invite game. It came with a Daytona Rolex and a bottle of Ace.” The Rolex watches are valued at an estimated $40,000.

The gala will take place the weekend of November 15 and 16 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, and "will feature performances and a blackjack tournament with a $100,000 buy-in. All proceeds from the event will go to the Foundation’s scholarship fund, college prep workshops, and study opportunities, as well as community goodwill programs for those in need."
