There is a reason Jay Z and Kanye West are discussed the way they are when money comes into the conversation. Years ago, Jay Z’s successful business moves earned him a $500 million net worth. Once these new investments have time, they will likely put him closer to $1 billion.
Kanye West, meanwhile, has jumped into several fashion ventures and has his own line. These projects are the first of many where Kanye West intends to be the head of the first trillion dollar enterprise. But, a lot of their bread and butter is still touring.
Jay Z was making around $7 million a month during the “On The Run” tour and he will live lavish, regardless, on the road. Recently, the tour details leaked about what Jay Z and Kanye West demand back at the hotel, when the show ends. The entire list came out earlier this afternoon.
Read the entire list below:
Jay Z insists on 71 degree temp. Hotel staff must provide 3 $80 Mayan tuberose-scented candles.
Jay has two no-no’s for staff:
1) No vacuuming near his room
2) Don’t ask for concert tickets if you want to “avoid embarrassment.”
Kanye has specific geometric preferences. Vases must be cylindrical. He also requires staff to hunt down a Genelecs 1031a speaker … which was discontinued a decade ago. He likes his floss minty, his cereal Kashi Go Lean and his towels black.
Kanye has a grocery list … 13 bottles totaling around $3,200, including 3 bottles of Paradis Hennessy.
Jay Z is more chill in the liquor dept. … just Ace of Spades champagne. But here’s the rub … the contract says he cannot be charged, since he owns the company.
THE KID CLAUSE:
Kanye has no provides for Nori. But Jay has lots of Blue Ivy demands. For starters, the entire suite must be childproofed with all corners, sharp edges, and electrical outlets all covered, and statues, lamps, and breakable objects removed. Oh, Blue only drinks organic whole milk.
