OG Juan Perez and world famous rapper Jay-Z have been good friends for many years. The two men go all the way back to Jay-Z’s time at Rockefeller Records. Roc-A-Fella Records was recording out of the studio that Juan Perez was managing at the time. They were introduced by label co-founder Kareem Biggs Burke. Jay-Z and OG Juan found out immediately that they had a lot in common. They were both passionate about New York sports and their history of growing up in the city. Their business relationship took flight with several different successful enterprises. OG Juan Perez is an intricate part of Jay-Z’s parent company and brand Roc Nation.
OG Juan Perez and Jay-Z launched the 40/40 Club together. The 40/40 Club is a sports bar and lounge concept that has attracted celebrities from all genres of entertainment. The success of the Club has allowed it to spread to other locations such as Atlantic City, the Brooklyn Barclays Center and Atlanta, Georgia.
The two men would later get together to form Roc Nation Sports. Roc Nation Sports is a sports agency idea that had been on the minds of Jay-Z and Perez for quite some time. After careful study they launched the agency to combat the prevailing issues that athletes face throughout their professional careers. OG Juan and Jay-Z had enough of hearing about athletes dedicating their lives to a sport only to finish their careers with no money. Roc Nation Sports is in place to help athletes secure wealth and maintain it in order to live a comfortable lifestyle as they grow older. OG Juan Perez is the President of Roc Nation Sports.
OG Juan Perez spent a night out on the town with the Roc Nation family to celebrate his 50th birthday. The event drew a great deal of attention due to the enormous tab they rang up at the end of the evening. There was an estimated $100,000 spent on champagne and other items. The crew visited expensive restaurants and drank at New York’s hottest nightclubs. Jay-Z was given credit for picking up the tab at the end of the night. However, it was revealed later that OG Juan Perez had in fact covered the bill.
