Jay Z Buys Ace of Spades Champagne
And the rich get richer.

Rap mogul Jay Z added to his already extensive portfolio by purchasing the liquor brand he helped make famous in the hood.

From Rhymeswithsnitch.com:

In a statement to media on Wednesday Sovereign Brands announced:

“We are proud to announce that Sovereign Brands, a New York-based wine and spirits company owned by the Berish family, has sold its interest in the Armand de Brignac (‘Ace of Spades’) Champagne brand to a new company led by the globally renowned Shawn ‘Jay Z’ Carter.”
Terms of deal were not disclosed.

      Don't most rapper do this: make expensive liquor brands famous then they say they can't stand niglets or it's not for niglets.

      D'usse is cognac...Ace of Spades is champagne. But I don't drink.

      ppl dont just like stuff anymore then buy out the company.

      reminds me of when I bought shares in Mattel for my son. the inscription says "why just own toys, when you can own a toy company".

      But this weekend LSU plays Bama (a heated rivalry) and I'm rooting for Bama! I HATE LSU!

      Then I'm goin to the Niners vs. Saints game Sunday! I've never seen the Niners in person and they have been my fav. team my whole life. They used to play the Saints every year cause they were in the same division. I had tickets to watch them one year and that was the week of 9/11 in 2001 and all the games were cancelled! :(
