Close

If you can't take things to the next level, then you're no Beyoncé and Jay-Z. The Carters are living proof that they're living the baller lifestyle.

Jay-z has reportedly sent out invites to the upcoming Shawn Carter Foundation Gala Dinner with accompanying gifts.

The world's first hip-hop billionaire reportedly sent out, together with the invites, $40,000 Daytona Rolex watch and bottles of $300 Ace of Spades champagne bottle per VIP guest.

The ex-boyfriend of Nicki Minaj, Meek Mill, took to his Instagram stories to hilariously comment on the move.

"Hov sent these as VIP passes smh this rich s-t getting out of control lol I'm not joking, lol."

Swizz Beatz also posted videos on his Instagram stories that the Jay-z had sent someone to deliver a package for him personally.

He said that he found the messenger in his living room with a black gift bag, which the rapper said was heavy. When asked what it was, the messenger told him the delivery was for the gala.

He later told everyone what's in the bag, saying, "Levels. Hov is on another level with the invite game. It came with a Daytona Rolex and a bottle of Ace."

A lot of fans praised the rapper for doing things differently. Although the invitations may seem expensive to a lot of us, that's just a small change considering his (and his wife's) wealth.

A source of Complex said that the Rolex was sent out as VIP passes for the gala. The black-tie event will be held on November 15 and November 16 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida. It will feature an invitation-only blackjack tournament with a $100,000 buy-in and a prize jackpot of $500,000.

Proceeds of the event will go to the foundation's core mission to provide low-income students with college scholarships, community goodwill programs for those in need and study abroad opportunities. The rapper started this foundation back in 2003 together with his mother, Gloria Carter.

In an announcement for the gala, Jay-z said "Equipping our youth with the tools to succeed will always be a priority for my family and me. I'm looking forward to continuing that mission at this year's Shaw Carter Foundation Gala Weekend, where we'll celebrate our scholars and continue to support young people in a meaningful way."

Special guests include Beyoncé and Rihanna, and Alicia Keys will also be performing for the crowd.
