Jay-Z’s label Roc Nation has been known to employ some of the biggest names in hip-hop. Meek Mill, Megan Thee Stallion, and Rihanna are just a few of the names associated with the brand.
Roc Nation has also become famous for hosting a brunch before the Grammy’s that has appearances from some of the cream of the crop in the entertainment industry. But ahead of this weekend’s Grammy Awards, New York Post’s Page Six says that the famed brunch will not be happening this year.
“A source confirmed to Page Six that Jay-Z and Roc Nation will not host their annual exclusive pre-Grammy brunch party on Saturday,” Page Six wrote.
“Roc Nation had been hosting the brunch since 2011. (The event returned last year after taking a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.)”
