Last week, Maybach Music Group’s rapper Wale was spotted walking the red carpet for¬†the reopening of Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club in Manhattan. A few months ago, the¬†sports¬†club underwent a¬†multi-million dollar¬†renovation that includes four 165-inch video screens and¬†gold¬†bats lining the walls. Other¬†celebrities such as Ashanti, Swizz Beatz, Adrienne Bailon, Fabolous, DJ Club, Rico Love, Questlove,¬†Grandmaster¬†Flash, Selita Ebanks and Irv Gotti were spotted in the VIP celebrating with Hova. Wale was rocking a pair of Air Jordan 5 “Tokyo 23” sneakers. “This limited AJ5 was produced¬†in honor of the Japanese streetball culture-honoring Tokyo23 tournament in Japan. It sports a bright yellow nubuck upper, grey accents and all of the signature silhouette features we‚Äôve come to know and love. Naturally, an icy outsole sits underneath. In place of the traditional ‚Äú23‚Ä≥ foxing embroidery, traditional Japanese writing is in place,”-Source. Wale was also wearing¬†a¬†College Fendi belt¬†from the 2011/2012 collection.
