Although Jay Z is pretty closed lip about it. He is a big fan of giving back. In his latest venture with Warren Buffet he does just that.
The rapper, entrepreneur and husband of Beyonce is teaming up with Warren Buffett to help school kids become more financially literate. Jay-Z will make an appearance in Buffett’s “Secret Millionaires Club,” an animated series about a group of kids led by Buffett as they tackle financial emergencies, according toThe New York Times. The entire episode has yet to be released, but in the sneak peak, the rapper aims to educate the kids on giving back.
“As a team you can put your interest in business to good use,” a cartoon version of Jay-Z tells the kids from his New York office. “That’s what I’ve done, being a good business man has allowed me to help others.”
The rapper started a scholarship foundation in 2003 to help kids with limited means pay for college. He’s also made generous donations to the Boys and Girls Clubs of America and the Red Cross.
It’s no surprise that a show with Buffett’s name attached to it would encourage viewers to give back. The billionaire investor has given away $3.25 billion of his own money, mostly to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and plans to ultimately give away half of his wealth, according to Forbes.
What better idea than a cartoon to teach kids to become more financially aware. Now if someone can just rap this same message up inside a interesting, power packed video game that would be awesome.
