Continuing a tradition of ownership started by her famous son, Jay Z’s mom has followed the musician and mogul into the restaurant business by opening her own eatery in Newark, New Jersey. Gloria Carter recently celebrated the launch of Diamondz N Da Ruff with her famous son and daughter-in-law, Beyonce, with a ribbon cutting ceremony and a champagne toast inside the establishment. While the venture is promising, this isn’t the first entry into the world of business for Gloria – she also serves as the president of her famous son’s college scholarship charity, the Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation. Jay Z opened the first location in his sports lounge and restaurant franchise, The 40/40 Club, in New York in 2003 and has since expanded with venues at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in Georgia.
