OG Juan: Family Man Who Helped Build An Empire

Juan “OG” Perez is one of Jay-Z’s most trusted business partners. He has been mentioned in several of his hit records including American Gangster back in 2007. The track “Success” is an ode to Jay’s career. Even with all the material things he has gained, he brings it back to the people who matter to him – his family and Roc Nation. In this record Jay tells OG Juan to “tell these boys” what he’s all about.

The way Jay-Z and OG Juan have affected each other has been stood to be monumental. OG Juan’s wife, Desiree Perez, has also been close to the family for decades serving as Chief Operating Officer of Roc Nation. She is a force to be reckoned with, having credit for the deals made with streaming music application, Tidal. She is considered to be Jay-Z’s righthand woman when it comes to sealing the deal. She has sharp negotiation skills and an amazing pulse of the industry. Desiree and OG Juan are in an elite group that runs the Roc Nation empire.

The two have managed to stay out of the spotlight for all of these years in the industry. They owe that to putting their family first. Although OG Juan recently made headlines due to running up a hundred thousand dollar tab for his birthday, they typically live a pretty low-key lifestyle. Gene Smith, Roc Nation Sports athlete, says they do a great job keeping the environment family centered, the culture and the atmosphere are very normal. The Perez family is committed to the empire and its success.
