Jay-Z Likes the Gold Bottle With the Ace of Spades
It's no secret that Jay-Z has is boycotting Cristal champagne due to some unflattering comments the managing director of Cristal's parent company about the relationship between hip hop and his champagne. What you might not know is that Jay-Z isn't just sitting around with an empty glass - he's moved on to greener pastures.
Enter Armand de Brignac, a champagne in a chi-chi gold bottle with a big old ace of spades on the bottle. Is he making a little dig at Cristal and the comments he found to be racist with the spade thing? Maybe not, but it's damned shrewd if he is.
