The very best looks and moments from the Rocnation brunch.

This year’s Rocnation brunch captured the attention of the global Hip-Hop community and as always, the Roc-a-fella Originals managed to pull off black excellence with immaculate ease.

On Saturday, the glitz and glam in Los Angeles permeated from the gardens of the Rocnation brunch. Jay-Z’s record label hosts the industry’s A-list musicians to a day of mingling and million-dollar photo-ops, on the eve of the Grammys.

Jay-Z has, for a long time, been a critic of the awards ceremony. However, a rekindled relationship with the Academy has yielded great opportunities.

In essence, the Rocnation brunch is a platform for stakeholders of the mainstream entertainment industry to scout talent, build rapport and secure deals.

Rocnation brunch: The best of the red carpet

America’s megastars were out on show at the Rocnation brunch. Beyoncè, as per the norm, made a late arrival that turned heads.

Her cousin, Kelly Rowland, made a killing in her two-piece fit and Rihanna, who has yet to address her navvy about R9, also came out to rub shoulders with her family.

These are some of the flicks from the red carpet that get the Swisher Post stamp of approval.

Watch: Kevin Hart, Diddy’s black excellence speeches

What would a brunch be without a toast from Jay-Z’s friend and business partner, Sean “Diddy” Combs? The dapper dad of Bad Boy Entertainment, as usual, gave a toast to black excellence, much to the appeasement of Hov.

Rockstar comedian, Kevin Hart, also had a few things to say about life, the road to success and the perfect way to end your book.
