Dinner with Jay-Z or cashing in on a fat check is a debate that resurfaces on social media. Now, weighing in the discussion is Diddy’s son King Combs.
In an interview with Bootleg Kev’s podcast, the rapper was asked which rap figures would he look to for advice other than his father Diddy. With no hesitation, King responded and said, Jay-Z.
In fact, the 24-year-old had recently talked to the billionaire before dropping his single “Can’t Stop Won’t Stop” earlier this year. Evidently, money can’t buy everything because King revealed the gems shared by HOV were worth more than the money.
“Before I dropped this song, we had a talk and that inspired me a lot,” King said. “The talk was definitely worth the money. You know how they say would you take the talk or the money? It was definitely worth it.”
The Advice That Money Can't Buy
If you are curious about what Jay-Z shared with the budding rapper, King also shared his words of wisdom.
“He was saying to like you know believe in yourself. Always follow what’s in your heart and not what no else is saying or anything. Just do what’s in your heart,” King said.
“So your advice would be, say ‘no’ to the 500 grand and take the dinner with HOV?” the host asked.
“Definitely take the dinner with HOV. For sure,” King said.
Jay-Z Remains At The Center Of The Conversation
Jay-Z remains at the center of the discussion, and he is still at the top of his game.
Most recently, the entrepreneur and rapper made headlines for his four-minute verse on DJ Khaled’s “GOD DID.”
Taking Advice From A Man Who Made Millionaires And Billionaires
“A standout line in Jay-Z’s verse is about how Jay-Z not only looked out for himself in building his wealth but for those in his circle. In playing a role in the careers of Kanye West, Rihanna, and LeBron James, ultimately three powerful empires were birthed. Rob Markman noted how 10 years ago he talked of making millionaires to now, billionaires,” AfroTech previously reported.
“And we not gonna stop,” Jay-Z declared in a recent Twitter space. “You know, Hip-Hop is young. We still growing and we are not falling for that tricknology.”
