Jay-Z Makes Post-Baby Appearance At 40/40 Reopening Accompanied by Warren Buffett

Jay-Z has a lot to celebrate. A little over a week ago, he and wife Beyoncé welcomed daughter Blue Ivy Carter into the world, and on Wednesday night, big poppa Hov had a bit of business to attend to at the reopening of his 40/40 Club.

The stars came out and walked the red carpet before entering the redesigned sports bar. Jay’s buddies Warren Buffet, Spike Lee, Steve Stoute, Jacob the Jeweler,Kevin Liles and New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia all attended.

“Hov always has big parties, so I’m definitely looking forward to going inside and mingling and jingling,” Ashanti said.

“We here at the reopening of the 40/40; we about to have a couple of drinks, a lot of beautiful women, New York City, the new joint — you already know,” Wale said excitedly.

Jigga’s 40/40 closed last summer to undergo renovations and is now back with an updated look. While everyone was excited about the new club, baby Blue Ivy was a hot topic on the carpet.

Ashanti couldn’t be happier for the new parents, but when asked if she had caught a bit of baby fever herself, the “Foolish” singer made it clear that she isn’t ready to be a mother just yet. “Oh no, boo-boo, no baby over here. I say it enough in my records,” she said with a boisterous laugh.

Music mogul and record producer Irv Gotti, who has three kids of his own, told MTV News that he shared some fatherly advice with his friend Jay-Z, but he wouldn’t reveal any of it. “I’ll keep that between me and Hov,” Irv said.

Then at that very moment, Jay breezed past the carpet trying to dodge reporters and flashing lights, but he did stop to give his old friend some love. After he and Gotti slapped each other five, Jay made a beeline for the 40/40 doors to get the party started.
