In the 1980's The Hip Hop Revolution was popping and one man, Branson B. dubbed by Forbes "The Unofficial Sommelier of Hip Hop" was discovering the best bubbly he could get his hands on in the back cellars of Harlem's liquor stores and introducing them to the likes of Notorious B.I.G and  Sean Combs ( Aka Puff Daddy, Aka P.Diddy, Aka Diddy). The relationship between Champagne and the Hip Hop community exploded and over the last 30 years we have come to learn that Crystal and Dom. P were emblematic pinnacles of success.

SO LETS BALL OUT! Baller Bubbles will explore the history of Champagnes and Hip Hop coupled with Grower Champagnes made in similar style or vintage. So from the lyrical stylings of Jay Z.: “Let’s take the dough and stay real jiggy, uh-huh / And sip the Cris and get pissy-pissy, uh huh.”
