The Carters: Jay-Z Attends New Launch of D’ussé Cognac, Releases "Made In America" Teaser & Set to Head Overseas For The Summer

Jay's gearing up for the European Leg of his and Kanye's critically acclaimed and hugely successful Watch the Throne Tour. The tour kicks off Sunday, May 20 in London at the O2 Arena.  

But before her goes overseas Hov's been taking care of business stateside.  

First he helped launch D’ussé (dew-say) Cognac, Wednesday night with sister-in-law Solange, good friend --and often collaborator-- Pharrell, and Jake Gyllenhaal along with a host of others at the jammed packed --private event held at The Standard Hotel in NYC.

D’ussé is a VSOP cognac made by Bacardi and will hit stores nationwide in September.  The price is $44.99 and will compete with Hennessy.  

Then on Friday, Jay released a 24 second video teaser with the title --"Made In America"-- some wondered if it was a promo for the European Tour, or a video teaser for Throne track "Made In America" or something entirely different.  It was teaser was typical Jay --it kept us all guessing and wondering.

According to Global Grind, it looks like the video might have something to do with Jay & Philly:
Following the release of the aforementioned cryptic video, Jay-Z's publicist sent out a media alert stating that Jay will be making a major announcement alongside Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter this Monday in Philly. No word on what exactly the announcement may be in reference to, but we have a penchant that this video has something to do with it. 

And it looks like after B's finished with her four sold out Revel Shows Memorial Day Weekend she and Blue will be heading overseas to spend the summer with Daddy.  According to Global Grind the Carters are renting "a very posh 5 bedroom apartment in London Town" so that the family of three will be comfortable while working and playing:
"Both Jay-Z and Beyoncé are going to be spending a lot of time in London over the next few months. Jay is over here for his Watch The Throne Tour and Radio 1’s Big Weekend and Beyonce will be launching her perfume in Europe over the summer."  
The new parents do have their 4-month-old, Blue Ivy, to think of. The source says: “They wanted to have somewhere more homely now they are parents.” 
While Hov is making crib arrangements, his partner in crime Kanye West is just fine blowing stacks on hotel digs.
Yeezy reportedly booked a floor of posh central London hotel The Lanesborough and we're sure his boo Kim Kardashian will be dropping in on some tour dates.
