Published Oct 18, 2011Jay-Z might be in hot soup with Syl Johnson over sampling the '60s soul singer's "Different Strokes" without permission for his Watch the Throne project with Kanye West, but an upcoming animated television appearance suggests that at least Jigga's still cool with the kids.
The rapper is set to appear in this Sunday's (October 23) episode of Hub TV's new show Secret Millionaires Club, playing, who else, himself. On the show, which centres on a few kids mentored by businessman/philanthropist Warren Buffett, Jay-Z welcomes the youth into his office, commending them on some charity work while plugging his own Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation.
"If you put your minds to it, you can do anything. Now get out of here and go and enjoy New York," Hova says before "Empire State of Mind" scores the kids' adventures.
