As an uber-famous internet blogger, I have a short list of demands when I check into a two-star hotel. The list includes, but is not limited to:

  • Every soft-core porn channel possible
  • Not making a scene when I deem the $80 premium channel charge an ‘accident’
  • Moisturizing lotion
  • Six warmed toilettes
  • A bed
  • Triple-ply toilet paper
  • Ignore the moans from my bedroom. I’m probably just crying while masturbating.

I don’t think that’s too much to ask for a guy of international stature.

But, believe it or not, there are bigger, more successful stars than I who have unlimited resources to make any demand they wish come true with the snap of a finger. This is a slippery slope for mega-stars with fragile egos who are used to the lavish lifestyle.

So when TMZ got a hold of the hotel riders for two of hip hop’s biggest stars–Kanye West and Jay-Z–you could almost guarantee some off-the-wall requests.

Per TMZ:


Jay Z insists on 71 degree temp. Hotel staff must provide 3 $80 Mayan tuberose-scented candles.

Jay has two no-no’s for staff: 1) No vacuuming near his room  2) Don’t ask for concert tickets if you want to “avoid embarrassment.”

Kanye has specific geometric preferences. Vases must be cylindrical. He also requires staff to hunt down a Genelecs 1031a speaker … which was discontinued a decade ago. He likes his floss minty, his cereal Kashi Go Lean and his towels black.


Kanye has a grocery list … 13 bottles totaling around $3,200, including 3 bottles of Paradis Hennessy.

Jay Z is more chill in the liquor dept. …  just Ace of Spades champagne. But here’s the rub … the contract says he cannot be charged, since he owns the company.


Kanye has no provides for Nori. But Jay has lots of Blue Ivy demands. For starters, the entire suite must be childproofed with all corners, sharp edges, and electrical outlets all covered, and statues, lamps, and breakable objects removed. Oh, Blue only drinks organic whole milk.

Kasha Go Lean is the worst cereal on the planet. You’re better than that, Kanye.
