As an elder statesman in the realm of Hip Hop, Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter has applied and replicated the success of his music career to his various financial endeavors over the years. With such a wealth of wisdom gained, it’s only natural that the daddy-to-be learns how to get familiar with passing on his knowledge to the young as he will undoubtedly do with his own progeny.
This coming Sunday, Jay-Z will get a bit of a jumpstart on the advice giving game by starring in a new animated series the Secret Millionaires Club on cable station Hub TV.
Helmed by Jay-Z’s friend and world famous investor Warren Buffett, the Secret Millionaires Club web series has been around 2009 – with Mr. Buffett beginning the show online in a series of “webisodes” in efforts to get kids involved with the idea of investing in their financial future at an early age.
Jay’s involvement in the cartoon series will be spread out over four special episodes with the Brooklyn rap veteran passing on his and wisdom and business savvy much like his philanthropic mentor Buffett has done in times past.
The television premiere episode “Be Cool To Your School” features Buffett doling out financial advice to a group of teenagers who want to raise money for the school and also score a trip to New York City. Teaser clips of the show feature a suited Jay-Z addressing the youth and applauding their hard work to raise funds for their school, dropping a few more gems along the way.
Who says Hov doesn’t love the kids?
