Jay-Z’s TIDAL Put ‘$500K or Dinner’ Question To Bed, 21 Savage Speak

Jay-Z or anyone running his TIDAL’s Twitter page has finally put the burning question of $500K or dinner with Hov to bed. Twitter users were torn earlier this week when hip hop fans involved themselves in a viral debate about whether to choose a dinner with Jay-Z or $500k in cash. A surprising amount of fans chose the dinner with Jay over half a million dollars, arguing that a couple of hours with Hov would give them all the financial intelligence they need to become millionaires. It could, of course, be argued that a well-invested $500k has a better chance of earning someone a millionaire status, maybe even getting them into the same social circles with Jay himself. However, it looks like the Brooklyn mogul’s own streaming service account has officially settled the debate, tweeting,...
