Jay-Z: Can I Get a... Maybach?
So, Jay-Z did cash out $750,000, but not all of his requests were fulfilled by the University. But since the school does not provide the artists with expensive cars, alcohol or tobacco, the rapper had to give up on several items on his rider’s list.
Jay-Z’s 2009 concert rider demands that promoters furnish to the artist the following ground transportation from his arrival in the city until his departure: one late model black Maybach 57 or 62 with tinted windows, one late model large black SUV with tinted windows, one late model fifteen-passenger van, one late model cargo van with no seats for luggage.
The artist also thought of his team in the rider. If his band and crew arrive or depart the city via air, the promoters should provide in addition one cargo van/truck for his equipment, cases and luggage and two fifteen-passenger vans.
What is with hip-hop artists? They have the best women, the best cars, the best cribs, the best parties (and after-parties, if you know what we mean). So, who’s going into rap business with us?
