Congrats are definitely in order for rap icon Jeezy who basically just stroke gold. Back in 2013 Jeezy took a small ownership stake into the tequila liquor brand Avion. Well today Jeezy and his partners just sold Avion to a Spirits Company for a few billion.
Jeezy is reportedly set to earn over $25 Million dollars for his small minority ownership. People in Jeezy’s camp also tell us that he will still be a brand ambassador and make a salary f that yearly.
Jeezy told us When I first became involved with Tequila Avión in 2013, I knew it had enormous potential on a global scale,”.
Moving forward, founder Ken Austin, President Jenna Fagnan, and Jeezy will remain involved in the brand’s development. According to sources, Jeezy will be financially incentivized until 2020 as he helps support the brand’s next wave growth.
“This next step with Pernod Ricard USA and continued partnership with Founder and Chairman, Ken Austin, will allow us to continue to grow the brand on the worldwide stage,” .
