    Jay-Z's got that money, so why not spend it? The rapper, who once again topped Forbes Magazine's hip-hop rich list, opened up his wallet at the Watch the Throne record release party held inside Miami's Fontainebleau. He spent $250,000 on champagne for guests, and then included a $50,000 tip, PEOPLE reports. Must have been nice to be that server!

    Watch the Throne is Jay-Z's collab with Kanye West and it is being heralded in the press, so Jay has reason to celebrate, that's for sure. He also spent thousands more at Scarpetta, the Italian restaurant inside the hotel, which stayed open extra-late to accommodate Jay-Z and his entourage.

    After a pasta dinner and some tequila, the rapper headed to the LIV Nightclub to continue the party. "Jay-Z was well-behaved and laid low all night on a banquette with his entourage of boys," a source told PEOPLE.

    Did you nab Watch the Throne yet?
