OG Juan Perez recently celebrated a birthday, and JAY Z helped him to do so by spending $113,000. It was Juan’s 50th birthday, and along with JAY Z, Roc Nation executives and OG Juan’s wife were in attendance. Their dinner costed around $13,000, and their liquor bill came out to $9,000. The event closed out at the Playroom Nightclub where a large amount of champagne was consumed and $91,000 was spent. The last part of the birthday party that took place at the Playroom Nightclub saw Juan, JAY Z, and some friends the only remaining partygoers.
Many people have referred to the birthday party as a brilliant move by JAY Z. While he did spend plenty of money on the occasion for OG Juan, a lot of it was spent on his own brand of champagne. Basically, most of the money spent went right back into JAY Z’s pocket, and the whole affair has been great for marketing. The amount of money that JAY Z spent was no surprise due to the fact that him and OG Juan have been friends and business partners for a very long time. Many say that Juan and his wife are who really runs most of JAY Z’s business.
OG Juan Perez was born in Harlem and met JAY Z in 1996. The two instantly hit-it-off and have been partners in business ever since. Juan has helped to run studios with JAY Z for many years and opened up different lounges and sports bars together in New York City. Their friendship also revolves around sports in NYC, and many different athletes have come to their nightclubs to pay them a visit. After all of these years, OG Juan and his wife have remained out of the bright lights of fame but continue to work behind the scenes to lift up JAY Z and others, as well.
Alex Pall narrates how he got into his venture in singing. He grew up deejaying as part of his hobby. He had very little to do regarding career and so deejaying was the option left for him in New York. It was more of a side job for him, which he did with so much passion. During this time, Alex Pall realized that the dance music was something he admires more and so he thought of trying it. He talked over the issue under the manager working with him currently. The manager introduced him to Drew. That is how the partnership with Drew was birthed. They met and began working together. Drew is his colleague in the same band called Chainsmokers. Pall explains how their friendship progressed and became more fruitful to date. He says that what made it more fulfilling was the fact that they both knew what they have on the table and what they want. They talked about what they would like in music as well as what they already did grew up knowing. They were very ambitious from the start. They keenly observed what was happening in their surrounding analyzing what worked well and what did not work. This was an essential phase of trying to build and shape their identity. Pall was a deejay expert, and on the other hand, Drew was a talented producer.
They continued their relationship working on music every single day. They were trying to create an identity of their own. Pall and his friend were committed to learning, and with time, they found out how similar their core values were. They knew that they did not have a job and so they pushed harder to pay bills and have a good life from it. He points out that their music is unique because they relate to it deeply.

They are proud to work with the famous artist, Halsey.
