Everyone knows Jay-Z as a class act that enjoys the best of the best and the cream of the crop. The infamous artist plans on creating a backstage gentlemen’s club, with cigar lounge and all, for his upcoming summer tour. According to Cigar Aficionado, Jay-Z plans on having a professional cigar roller, known as a torcedor, on the road with him to roll cigars in his backstage club. It is said that the classy club will pay tribute to the legendary Rat Pack.
Jay-Z’s personal torcedor will be rolling a particular blend but details on the blend are currently unavailable. The artist is known for his love of cigars so it’s no surprise he plans on going all out on his next tour. Jay-Z has told Cigar Aficionado that he is a fan of Davidoff Zino Platinums as well as Cuban cigars (no surprise there).
“I like Montecristos, those are probably some of my favorites,” Jay-Z told Cigar Aficionado. “But I like a bit of everything, Romeo y Julieta, Partagas. One of my first favorites was Dunhills, when I first started smoking them. But I go back and forth. I think it’s like anything else, sure you can find good, inexpensive cigars, but the things that are really good are the ones that cost.”
Jay-Z loves traveling and enjoying the simple things in life, including cigars. “I love food and wine and sunsets. You give me a great sunset, a perfect meal, a great bottle of wine and a cigar to finish it off, and I don’t have a care in the world,” he told Cigar Aficionado.
The “Legends Of The Summer” tour will feature both Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake and kicks off this July in Toronto, Canada. This will be a show you do not want to miss! We’re hoping we can sneak backstage and kick back in his luxurious cigar lounge!
