OG Juan Perez has been in business with Jay-Z for several years. The two men have a relationship that dates all way back to the 90’s. Roc-A-Fella Records was working out of the studio that OG Juan Perez was running at the time. He and Jay-Z began to immediately form a relationship after learning that they had a great deal in common. Both men were natives of New York City and very passionate about their hometown. They also had a great love for the local sports teams.
Jay-Z and OG Juan Perez formed several successful ventures including Roc Nation Sports. Perez and Jay-Z grew tired of hearing the story about professional athletes losing their wealth after they were done with sports. Roc Nation Sports will address money management and market the athletes in a manner that will bring them value outside of particular profession. The agency has signed several high-profile athletes and continues to push forward.
OG Juan Perez recently celebrated an evening out with friends. He was joined by his wife Desiree, Jay-Z and his wife Beyonce, along with several other members of The Roc Nation family. The crew made headlines by running up an epic tab on the night. They began at the Japanese restaurant Zuma, spending $13,000. The entourage then moved on to Made in America where they consumed $9,000 worth of Jay-Z’s signature brand of cognac. The night was capped off at a popular nightclub wear $90,000 was spent on champagne and other accessories. The total bill was well over $100,000, a jaw-dropping amount.
Jay-Z was given credit funding the activities and praised for spending such a lavish amount of money on his good friend. However, Jay-Z cleared the record and stated that OG Juan actually paid the bill.

You don’t have to be a hardened fan of dance music or EDM in order to understand the imprint that The Chainsmokers have left on the pop world. The Chainsmokers, comprised of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart, have been monthly mainstays at the top of the Billboard’s list of hot tracks ever since they first came together. Most well known for songs like ‘Closer’ and ‘Paris’, The Chainsmokers are preparing to change directions in order to bring something new to the world.
Alex Pall and Andrew Taggert were both working in music, albeit in very different states, when it was first suggested that they meet and ponder working together by a mutual friend. Their first meeting went well and, obviously, the rest quickly became history. Over the past couple of years, The Chainsmokers have been tireless in their work ethic and on-point with a release schedule that is almost unparalleled in the industry. The Chainsmokers have been releasing tracks on an almost monthly basis for a long time but it quickly became clear that change was required. Pall and Taggart decided to step away from their hectic schedule in order to hone their craft and really personalize the stories that they are attempting to tell.
The newest song on the release schedule for The Chainsmokers is called ‘Don’t Let Me Down’ and it features Andrew Taggart on the vocals. Taggart and Pall have been locked into the manufacturing of all of their music, but they’ve typically allowed guest artists to come on board in order to sing the chorus. Taggart is taking over that role for what should be the beginning of a completely new era for the group. The famous DJers want to make their music more personal than ever and that means that they need to get in front of telling the story themselves. This is a remarkable change but a vastly important one. While details on their new record have been mostly scarce, it appears that The Chainsmokers are aiming to completely change their perception within the pop world while elevating themselves as artists along the way.
