Jay-Z recently sat down with Gayle King and discussed a lot of thing including the infamous question, “dinner with HOV, or 500k”.
Jigga answered the question to the long-running debate in an upcoming interview with Gayle King on CBS Mornings, stating.
“You gotta take the money.”
King voiced the common conclusion that the wisdom he can impart on his dinner guests will be more valuable than half a million dollars, but JAY-Z begged to differ and explained that what he can offer is already publicly available, and at a much cheaper price.
“You got all that in the music for $10.99 USD. That’s a bad deal, I wouldn’t tell you to cut a bad deal,” he said humorously.
Although this is the first time JAY-Z directly answered the question, he already gave his suggestion via the social media account of his streaming service, TIDAL. “Take the 500K,” a tweet from 2021 read.
