The President of Roc Nation Sports, Juan Perez, was recently treated to an indulgent birthday party that was thrown by none other than his business partner and friend, rapper Jay-Z. Over $110,000 was spent on the celebration, $13,000 of it on a dinner that consisted of lobster, steak and sushi, and $9.000 of it on drinks that included Cognac from Jay-Z’s brand. The former sports star has been friends with the popular rapper and business mogul for over 20 years, having first met him back in 1996 through the co-founder of Roc-A-Fella Records, Kareem Burke.
After the two were introduced to each other, they formed an instant bond that stood the test of time. So, it was only fitting that Jay-Z would put together an event such as this latest one to celebrate friend’s 50th birthday. The party lasted into the early morning hours at the Playroom Nightclub, where $91,000 was spent. Juan Perez, who is also called OG Perez, is a former baseball player who was born and raised in Harlem, New York, and his wife Desiree Perez, or as she is also known, Dez Perez, is also an executive at Roc Nation who heads Jay-Z’s Tidal music streaming service.
Their idea of mixing sports with entertainment is what caused Jay-Z and Juan to open up several lucrative sports bars and lounges in the New York area over the years, and their partnership, as well as their business venture, is still going strong. Perez and his wife Dez seem to have the right formula when it comes to helping run a big corporation such as Roc Nation, and judging by this elaborate 50th birthday party Jay-Z just threw for his friend, he really appreciates all of their hard work, contributions and loyalty to both his company, and to him as a personal friend.
