JAY-Z’s new Monogram cannabis unboxed and reviewed – Leafly

I got 99 problems but JAY-Z’s weed ain’t one.

The 22-time Grammy-winning rapper debuts in California’s adult-use marijuana market this year with a premium-priced luxury weed brand—Monogram.

The actual herb quality varies and the price point attracts haters. But JAY-Z is a dime bags-to-riches American icon. He’s New York royalty and the owner of Roc Nation.

Beyonce’s husband commands legions of fans with cash and humble dreams to buy up not only the weed but the backstory, and even fresh stock in the company.
