The world is congratulating Jay-Z after the massive announcement this morning that his Ace Of Spades champagne brand would be entering a partnership with LVMH, the luxury multinational luxury corporation. It's a massive deal for hip-hop, specifically, since Armand De Brignac was created after Hov called for a boycott of Cristal champagne after they suggested its association with the culture, and Black artists, would harm the brand.
Beyoncé's mother has written a "love letter" to her son-in-law, Jay-Z.On the same day news broke that Moet Hennessy will acquire a 50 percent stake in the rapper/business mogul's Champagne brand, Armand de Brignac, Tina Knowles-Lawson posted a tribute to him for being a "bad ass brother," paving the way for other Black entrepreneurs as well as championing Black artists, including recently at the Super Bowl through his entertainment partnership with the NFL.
"This is a love letter to my son-in-law Shawn Carter," Knowles-Lawson began her Instagram post.
Knowles-Lawson, also mom to Solange, said she was "inspired to write this" because at the Super Bowl earlier this month "we witnessed the national anthem, 'America the Beautiful' and the halftime entertainment all being super talented black people!!!," referring to Jazmine Sullivan (who performed with Eric Church), H.E.R. and the Weeknd, who all slayed their performances, she said, "making Black excellence shine and us all proud."
