Jay-Z was definitely in a “Empire Stare of Mind” as Beyoncé and many of their celebrity friends joined them as he hosted the 18th anniversary party for his 40/40 sports club Saturday in New York City.

Megan Thee Stallion, Swizz Beatz, Meek Mill, Busta Rhymes, Lil Uzi Vert, Remy Ma, Pusha T, JT from City Girls, J Balvin, and Vic Mensa were among the stars arriving on a blue carpet at the bi-level venue in Manhattan, according to Billboard.

The name “40/40” represents the rare baseball achievement of hitting at least 40 home runs and stealing at least 40 bases in a single season. Only four MLB players — Barry Bonds, Alex Rodriguez, Jose Canseco and Alfonso Soriano — have accomplished the feat.

Hova and Queen Bey star in the new Tiffany ABOUT LOVE ad campaign in which she wears wears the iconic Tiffany Yellow Diamond, and Hova was flowing with words of praise for his wife.

“She’s super detail oriented, obviously, as you can see from her work,” Jay told Entertainment Tonight. “She’s an incredibly hard worker, super talented, very inspiring.”

The Roc Nation CEO has partnered with Fanatics to bid on opening a sportsbook in NYC, and he’s thrilled about the prospect of bringing mobile sports betting to his hometown.

“New York City’s a big thing, obviously, [I’m] a kid from Brooklyn, you know, so it’s big for us,” he said.” It’s very important because typically in these things there’s no sort of diversity, there’s no one that represents the city, no one from the city. So, all those things make it a real exciting opportunity.” 

The sportsbook would add to Jigga’s many sports ventures, which include representing over 100 professional athletes and consulting the NFL on the Super Bowl halftime show and other special events.
