In Jay-Z's world, things tend to happen fast. After all, big bucks aren't earned by waiting on others. However, in the new commercial for D'USSE cognac -- the liquor he launched earlier this year -- the Brooklyn-born rapper slows things down a bit. Sometimes it's necessary to experience a moment at a slower pace.

In the ad, Jigga dons a black tuxedo while seated inside a pricey pad overlooking what appears to be the Brooklyn Bridge. By his side is a bottle of D'USSE, which retails at around $44.99 per 750-ml bottle.

Take a closer look at what the Reasonable Doubt creator chooses to get a grip on -- in slow motion -- during the clip.
