LeBron James is revealing the one-of-a-kind gift he received from JAY-Z.
The NBA superstar showed off a special package of D’USSÉ 1969 Anniversaire Cognac that his “brother” JAY-Z delivered to his house.
In the unboxing video, which he uploaded to Instagram Stories, King James is extra careful as he removes the orange box of cognac from its “crazy packaging.” Suspended inside is a crystal diamond decanter filled with the single-barrel brandy.
“Sheesh! This boy like a diamond!” says LeBron before thanking JAY-Z. “Big homie, love, appreciate you, bro.”
The limited edition cognac, priced at $5,000, was created in honor of JAY-Z’s 50th birthday in 2019. JAY individually numbered the first 50 decanters and sent them to friends and family. A limited run was made available to the public in select major markets last year.
The first release in the collection, dubbed “Bottle No. 1,” was auctioned at Sotheby’s in March for $52,500, with proceeds benefitting the Shawn Carter Foundation. It featured JAY-Z’s engraved signature with 24-karat gold foil around the neck.
