HipHopBlog has learned that hip hop mogul Jay-Z's bid to put a 40/40 Club in the Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport has been denied. Atlanta's city council decided against the venture and voted it down after 9 hours of debate.
It has been suggested that prospects for Jay's Atlanta 40/40 Club were already dim; as it was not recommended by the office of Mayor Kasim Reed. This, despite the fact that Jay-Z spent significant time with Reid as he lobbied for the contract.
Jay announced the proposed venture early in 2011. It should be noted that fellow hip hop star Ludacris revealed that he will be opening his own restaurant, Chicken & Beer, at Hartsfield Jackson. The airport is the busiest in the world.
