Pop for Roc! Jay Z Buys Armand de Brignac ‘Ace of Spades’ Champagne Brand

Adesola Ade-Unuigbe



Kansas City Royals v New York Yankees“I’m not a businessman;

I’m a business, man!”

That’s the Jay Z line from his 2005 feature on Kanye Wests’ song ‘Diamonds From Sierra Leone (Remix)’ that comes to mind with this news.

Music mogul Jay Z is certainly a businessman as he is constantly expanding his assets. The 44-year-old rapper has reportedly bought over the Armand de Brignac champagne brand popularly known as ‘Ace of Spades’.


The golden-bottled champagne, which featured in a 2006 Jay Z music video, sells for $300 (£188) per bottle and is one of the more expensive drinks favoured by the rich and famous.

This new acquisition is the latest addition to Jay Z’s vast business interests outside of his music, which include a clothing line, restaurants and a recording label.

According to Forbes magazine, Jay Z is considered the third richest hip-hop artist in the world with an estimated net worth of $520m.

    I see what he’s done there! Partly to compete with Cristal by Louis Roederer after the spat they had years ago which bordered on racism.

    Where did all of you people keep your humour.

    I was referencing that video clip of the guy in paris asking “who is he?” And jay z replied “who are you”

    Good business move, he brought the champagne mainstream success after he left cristal,no shade but for me cos of the taste I’d still buy a bottle of cristal over an Armand de Brignac

    Adding more problems to the already troubled Akata lifestyle…$4000 rims, on a $1500 car. $800 on Jordan sneakers but they get to tHE DMV and can’t read during a driving test cos they think education is too expensive and don’t bother going to school. …Hennessy , Dom P, Gucci etc were made among inner city AA communities popular by rappers, now add Ace of Spades to their hustle. Smh. Ride on jigga and make that money, at least you are business savvy.
