Recently, when JAY-Z was crowned hip-hop’s first billionaire, the estimated totals of his investments surfaced, revealing that the mogul has more than five times the amount of money invested in his alcohol ventures than he does in his own music catalog. If nothing else, it proves alcohol can be lucrative as hell, but it may also mean that the artists and business managers we revere for their passion and creativity have more to offer than just the next record or tour.
Enter Tim Smith and Pat Corcoran, two of the most respected artist managers in the game—the brawn behind Skrillex, Chance The Rapper, and others. The pair linked to create No Fine Print in February 2018 alongside Chicago sommelier Ryan Arnold, diversifying their respective portfolios by launching an unconventional wine brand that doesn’t take things too seriously. Now, they’re hitting the wave of canned spirits with Lil Fizz.
Lil Fizz (12% ABV) is a canned white wine, made from a blend of sauvignon blanc, chardonnay and pinot noir grapes, crisply carbonated and primed for the summer swelter.
Corcoran explains in a press statement,
“Summers in Chicago are short, so you gotta take advantage of every minute you can being outside and with friends. Whether it’s a concert or backyard BBQ, the last thing you want is a hot drink, which is why the can and the volume work so well.”
Ahead of Lil Fizz’ debut, the wine brand has carved out a reputation for procuring a libation that’s free of any pretentious connotations or ego. So while Smith and Corcoran may acknowledge the best parts of JAY-Z’s playbook, their product will never be the next Armand de Brignac champagne—and they’re more than fine with that.

Sometimes you enter into a pop cultural universe late and have to work backwards to fill in the gaps. Maybe you’ve decided to binge several seasons of a popular TV show to participate in the discourse, or you’ve fallen headfirst into a musical subgenre and now have a whole canon to educate yourself on. Maybe … More »

Pink has never fit in — so much so that not fitting in has become part of her personal brand. Despite spending two decades operating from deep within the mainstream machine, Alicia Beth Moore can believably tout herself as a pop star for the outsiders and the rebels. It’s a weird thing to say about … More »
