What looked like a great proposal for business for Jay-Z when it came to expanding his Club 40/40 empire, is now a no go! According to Hiphop Blog, hip hop mogul Jay-Z's bid to put a 40/40 Club in the Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport has been denied. Atlanta's city council decided against the venture and voted it down after 9 hours of debate. It has been suggested that prospects for Jay's Atlanta 40/40 Club were already dim; as it was not recommended by the office of Mayor Kasim Reed. This, despite the fact that Jay-Z spent significant time with Reid as he lobbied for the contract.
Jay announced the proposed venture early in 2011. It should be noted that fellow hip hop star Ludacris revealed that he will be opening his own restaurant, Chicken & Beer, at Hartsfield Jackson. The airport is the busiest in the world.
Dim is the perfect word for Jay-Z and Club 40/40. I can remember how hyped I was when Club 40/40 downtown in Las Vegas and in a blink of an eye, it was shut down! Seriously! LOL
