Who knew Camel liked cognac? The rapper/mogul threw a launch party this week for D’Ussé cognac and from the sound of it, had a blast. But don’t worry about Bey, she caught up at the after hours spot.
Even though he’s a co-owner of the New Jersey Nets (soon to be the Brooklyn Nets), Jay-Z made sure all could watch the New York Knicks battle the Miami Heat in Game 5 of the NBA playoffs during a party he hosted for Bacardi’s new cognac, D’Ussé (pronounced Deuce-ay). The rapper brought in flat-screen televisions to the Top of Standard Wednesday night, to make sure guests including Steve Stoute, Kevin Liles, Pharrell and Jake Gyllenhaal could stay tuned in to Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks. Jay-Z’s sister-in-law, Solange Knowles, and mother-in-law, Tina Knowles, were also at the event, but Beyoncé wasn’t there. The new mom of 4-month-old Blue Ivy later met up with her husband at The Darby, where Zoe Saldana, Gerard Butler and Wyclef Jean were also hanging out. Jean gave an impromptu performance of songs from the Fugees with Rachel Brown, the Wednesday night musical act, and the two singers ended her set with a duet of Bob Marley’s “Redemption Song.”
Y’all know we gotta ask… Do y’all really wanna drinks something with a name so similar to BADUSSY???
