Ja-Z warmly grets billionaire Warren Buffet

*2012 is starting off with a bang for Hip Hop mogul Jay-Z. He’s got a new baby and a new club, so to speak. Wednesday night was a star-studded grand-reopening red carpet event at NYC’s 40/40 club.

The new daddy showed up in style of course, sharply clad in a classy black suit.

Friends who came to support included Ashanti, Wale, Selita Ebanks, Russell Simmons and Spike Lee. But one you’d never expect, multi-billionaire Warren Buffet, showed up to the party

However, the one person who didn’t show up (for obvious reasons) was Beyonce. The new mother was presumably home resting after just giving birth to her baby girl, Blue Ivy Carter, just two weeks ago.

But the singer and her baby girl were the talk of the party. An observer told US Weekly that Jay-Z pulled out his phone throughout the night and happily showed photos, presumably of his brand-new baby girl, to friends, who gave him and hugs and high-fives.
