Jay-Z Commands Star-Studded Guest List

Source: AOL

 


It's no secret that Jay-Z is an avid sports fan or that athletes warm up to Jay-Z's music before game time. So when the Jigga man opened his new '40/40 Club' in Atlantic City last week, the superstars came out.

Magic Johnson, Terrell Owens, Eddie George, Barry Bonds and Serena Williams all showed up to support their favorite rapper.

"I'm inspired by [Jay-Z]," Serena Williams said from the red carpet. "He's an entrepreneur. He started from so very little and has so much. I'm inspired by him because I'm on that same road. I started from very little, and I'm aspiring to be like him."

Jay is also planning a 40/40 Club in Las Vegas and one in Los Angeles. He's currently working with Magic Johnson to get the L.A. spot popping.

"I think we both saw that we're both doing some big things," Magic told MTV about why he wanted to partner with Jay. "When two people are doing big things and grew up the same way, just in different arenas, it's time for us to do things together. We have the same mindset; he dominated in his field, I dominated in my field. It's positive that the hip-hop arena and basketball arena cross over. It's all about entertainment."

Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, T.I. and Timbaland were in the house as well.

The next night, Jay held his much anticipated 'I Declare War' concert at Continental Airlines Arena in New Jersey (Click here for BV's coverage). LeBron James was on hand to see Jay and Nas unite on stage as well as watch performances from Kanye West, The Lox, Young Jeezy, Paul Wall, T.I. and others. He did the show all over again the next night at the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia.
