After welcoming his first born, Blue Ivy Carter, over the weekend, Hov went right back to business, first announcing he will be the spokesperson for the new Duracell Powermat and now preparing to reveal the re-opening of his New York City club, 40/40.
Last year, the NYC spot shut down for renovations. And in September, the club was blasted for not meeting area labor standards. Now, according to hiphopwired.com, the club will hold an exclusive, invite-only event on Wednesday, January 18, to premiere the revamped venue. The locale will be open to the public shortly after.
The new-and-improved 40/40 Club will feature a completely new look and menu thanks to renovations that reportedly cost about $10 million.
Jay-Z has made plenty headlines the last few days, mainly for the birth of his daughter, which has been dubbed B.I.C. for short. After her birth on Saturday (January 7) In New York City hospital Lenox Hill, Jigga Man released a song titled “Glory” that pays homage to his daughter and even featured her cries. The song reveals details about the creation of the baby, including that she was conceived in Paris and that before being pregnant with her, B suffered a miscarriage.
Since, all sorts of reports have surfaced revolving the newborn, including other patients claiming they were prevented from entering the hospital at different times for different time spans to see their own newly-born children due to Bey and Jay’s security.
