Roc Nation carried on tradition with their annual Pre-GRAMMY brunch in Beverly Hills on Saturday afternoon. The swanky event was hosted on the property of a private gated mansion, presented by MAC Viva Glam. Not short on stars, the event was lead by Jay Z, who appeared in a dapper black tux with his new Comodor luxury cigars in hand as he mingled and posed for photos with guests.

DJ Ross One, DJ Reflex, and DJ Mustard provided live sets on the lavish property which included fountains, a grand pool, and a Comodor cigar station as Hors d’oeuvres and D’USSÉ were served to patrons.

Everyone’s favorite bad girl Rihanna caught everyone’s attention on the red carpet wearing a top and skirt from Altuzzara’s Spring 2014 collection. Other attendees included Rita Ora and her boyfriend Calvin Harris–who will be developing an HBO comedy show with Jay Z this year, J. Cole, Ne-Yo, Willow and Jaden Smith, The-Dream, Wale, Meek Mill, T.I., WNBA player Skylar Diggins, Bridget Kelly, actor-comedian Kevin Hart, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, director Anthony Mandler, marketing exec Steve Stoute, and more.

Jay Z’s annual brunch came a day before he’s set to perform with wife Beyoncé at the 56th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday evening. The rapper-mogul leads all artists with nine nominations.
