The driving force behind rapper Jay-Z’s Roc Nation, Juan “OG” Perez and wife Desiree received special recognition from the rap mogul and his wife Beyonce on their song “Friends” featured on their latest album “Everything is Love”. The song pays tribute to Juan “OG” Perez as he has been close friends with Jay Z since the rapper started his initial label Roc Nation in 1996.
As Jay-Z grew in popularity, so did the bond with Juan “OG” Perez. Featured in the debut album of Jay Z and Beyonce’s collaboration, The Carters, Juan “OG” Perez and Desiree Perez are recognized as being a couple who have stood with their friends Jay Z and Beyonce through thick and thin.
Roc Nation is all about friendship and staying together, from the streets of Brooklyn to the untimely success of Jay-Z, Beyonce, and Tinder. Nothing has proven this more than the bond between Juan “OG” Perez, Desiree Perez, and Jay-Z, and Beyonce. The friendship goes beyond what people might think when first hearing about who is inside Jay-Z and Beyonce’s inner circle. It is gratifying to see how the two mega-stars do not forget their roots and remain a true friendship with people who are not in the business.
A recent move by Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenney to evict Jay-Z’s Made in America festival from Philadelphia was stopped by cooperation with Roc Nation COO Desiree Perez. Desiree Perez and Jay-Z worked together on keeping the festival in Philadelphia and the Roc Nation emblem strong with the festival. This is a testament to the strength of friendship between the four.
