JAY-Z and Meek Mill orchestrated an extravagant 007-themed party in Atlantic City, NJ, to raise funds for the REFORM Alliance, drawing a constellation of Hip-Hop luminaries and A-list celebrities.
Page Six reported that the exclusive blackjack party, which took place on Saturday, September 30, welcomed notable guests such as Tom Brady, Kim Kardashian, Lala Anthony, and more.
The buy-in for the event was a staggering $100,000 per play, with the entire proceeds earmarked for the criminal justice reform organization, REFORM Alliance.
The night was enlivened by electrifying performances from Quavo and Travis Scott, and also featured appearances by renowned figures like Derek Jeter.
Serving as the master of ceremonies was Kevin Hart, chosen to helm the event, which was hosted by the board of the REFORM Alliance.
The nonprofit is dedicated to transforming the probation and parole systems by advocating for legislative and cultural changes that lead to meaningful pathways to employment and well-being.
Page Six disclosed that a fleet of 10 to 15 helicopters was deployed to transport guests from New York City airports to Atlantic City, underscoring the exclusivity and grandeur of the occasion.
“It was Jay’s idea to make a really small, incredibly exclusive event with the best people in the world. You can’t buy your way into this party,” a source shared.
In addition to the revelry, JAY-Z Team ROC recently lent their support to a Wisconsin man named Jermelle English Jr., who was wrongfully and violently arrested while holding his one-year-old child.
The Kenosha Police Department had erroneously detained English on suspicion of fleeing a car crash in August.
The disturbing arrest, captured on a cell phone video inside an Applebee’s restaurant, showcased several officers forcibly handling English as he sat on the restaurant floor, clutching his infant and asserting his innocence.
Following the baby’s removal, police wrestled English to the ground, with one officer appearing to repeatedly punch him. Despite realizing they had arrested the wrong individual, English was still charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
In response, Team ROC, with the legal representation of high-powered attorney Alex Spiro, is supporting English in his quest for justice.
“The reckless arrest of Jermelle English Jr. and the careless endangerment of his infant child by the Kenosha Police Department is an absolute travesty. The Team ROC team is here to support Jermelle and his family through this traumatic experience, demand justice, and hold the Kenosha police officers accountable,” Dania Diaz, Team ROC’s Managing Director, remarked.
