Jay Z Announces His Marijuana Business Branded Monogram

Published

on

Jay Z launched his new cannabis line called Monogram on Friday, October 23.

Adding to his long list of businesses including his streaming service- Tidal, music executive roles, memoir writing, liquor business, and real estate, Monogram proves that there is little the rapper wouldn’t touch.

The billionaire now joins celebrities like Snoop Dogg, Whoopi Goldberg, Wiz Khalifa and even Martha Stewart who have all had their own lines.

In partnership with the California Cannabis Company, Caliva, the 50-year-old launched his business.

Although the legendary rapper just announced his official line with Caliva, he joined the company in 2019 as its chief brand strategist.

However, there is yet to be a release date as Monogram’s official website gives little information about what it will offer.

Also released on Jay-Z’s streaming platform, Tidal, this week was a playlist entitled ‘Monogram: Sounds From the Grow Room‘ with Bob Marley, The Beetles, and Rihanna all on it.

The site reads, “Monogram marks a new chapter in cannabis defined by dignity, care, and consistency. It is a collective effort to bring you the best, and a humble pursuit to discover what the best truly means.”

While it remains federally illegal, more than half of US states have legalized medical marijuana, with some of those states even allowing recreational use.

“He’s Better Than Those Self Acclaimed Current Kings of Highlife Music” : Renowned Music Personality Reveals

Published

on

Rumors have it that this guy called “RAO”, though an up and coming artist, has great tunes and lyrical content than most of the currently self-acclaimed Kings of Highlife including Kuame Eugene, Kidi, King Promise, and others.

As to who was making such comparison, we can’t disclose for controversial security reasons. It was on the 20th of October when the person (a renowned person in the Ghana music industry whose name is withheld) said in an interview with a radio station that he’s heard a new song by an upcoming artist called RAO and he thinks the Ghana music industry has a great and promising future with such talents in the loop. He added that chances and opportunities don’t happen fairly, if they do, this guy RAO should have already been out and up there rubbing shoulders with those guys whose names are aforementioned.

Ghana music industry has experienced a tremendous change lately and has embraced other genres of music including afrobeat and the rest. This RAO guy per my little inquiry is really versatile in all genres and stands ready for the Ghana Music Industry and beyond. He is currently signed on NB Records and they are about to release another single titled Otɔlɛ meaning hustle, not long after the release of his hit song “Fakye-Forgive”. This new song is produced by KinDee.

Listen to one of his songs below. and if you agree that if he’s given the chance and opportunity, he could be better than the names mentioned above, leave your comments here or under the YouTube video, let’s know what you think.
