Jay-Z performed the “B-Sides 2” show in his home town of New York at the weekend. In Manhattan’s Webster Hall F, Jay-Z thanked everyone there for choosing to come & see him over going to see Avengers: Endgame. Endgame is the massive comic book blockbuster that shattered box office records around the world by grossing over a billion euro in just five days.

During a freestyle about financial progression Jay-Z flipped references about his blue Richard Mille 56 watch. The watch was customized by the RocNation founder’s personal jeweler, Alex Todd.

Todd spent 3,000 hours customizing the $2.5 (€2.23) million Richard Mille timepiece.

It is expected to hold its value due to its limited production.
