Champagne Showers

From Big Poppa to @ChampagnePapi, the bubbly has remained iconic throughout hip hop culture over the years. If there was any (reasonable) doubt of just how important champagne was to the artists, Jay Z cleared the air once and for all. In November of 2014, headlines of business and entertainment alike flooded in regards to Jay Z's deal with Armand De Brignac aka Ace of Spades aka Gold Bottles. But for the true fans, while the deal was news the story wasn't new at all. It all started back in '06, when Frederic Rouzaud of Cristal made an unsavory comment about rappers enjoying and even more so name-dropping left and right (great, free branding). He represented the brand and alluded that he wasn't having it -- but neither was Jay. 

Jay then called for a boycott on the brand and took his point to the furthest when he bought up Ace of Spades. Now THIS moment was a serious one to celebrate with gold bottles. :D You can read the full story here. While Jay Z may have claimed the most serious stake in the champagne game, he's certainly not alone.
