When Jay Z and Kanye West, better known as the husbands of Kim Kardashian and Beyonce, aren’t consumed by matrimony to the aforementioned queens, they tour the world and request ridiculous things befitting of their status as hip-hop’s premier prince consorts.
TMZ recently got their hands on the two noted Parisian tourists‘ riders, which outline what promoters or whoever happens to be hosting them that night are obliged to provide.
Unsurprisingly, the duo borders on royal maintenance.
Jay Z apparently suffers from an inability to dress for the temperature and requests his room to be kept at 21.6 degrees Celsius at all times. He’s also a stickler for smell and must be provided with three Mayan tuberose-scented candles ($100). Otherwise, his staff have it pretty good aside from the fact that they aren’t allowed to vacuum or ask for concert tickets.
Kanye, meanwhile, absolutely must be accompanied by cylindrical vases and a Genelecs 1031a speaker, which has been out of production for over a decade. He also also prefers to nourish himself with Kashi Go Lean cereal, which suggests he’s refreshingly health-consciou– wait a minute, says here Mr. West’s grocery list also includes 13 bottles of booze totalling $4600.
Alright, so Yeezy likes to get drunk on tour.
Jay Z, on the other hand, is considerably more domestic and orders his entire suite to be childproofed with all corners, sharp edges, and electrical outlets covered, and statues, lamps, and breakable objects removed. While Blue Ivy sips on organic whole milk, Hova indulges in his very own Ace of Spades Champagne. He demands not to be charged for the bubbles, which is odd since that’s usually how these things work and Ace of Spades is his company.
Not that exciting, really; three crowns out of five.
