Exactly. Jay-Z's family is from the most advanced economy in the world with the most economic opportunities available. If you live in the same country as Jay-Z, you have the same opportunities to become a Jay-Z also.



There is a lot that can be done on the 2nd largest continent. What does the continent size have to do with support? Many African nations lack infrastructure and there is a world of opportunity for entrepreneurs to help bring about industries and facilities. Africa has been asking the sharpest minds to come to the continent to help them build, especially from us African Americans.

Africa has been telling us to come home since Nkrumah got Ghana their independence in the late 50s. Africa is rebuilding and wants our help. More of us need to answer the call. Instead, we sat back and let China go there and get first dibs in many projects over there. We need more of our millionaires and billionaires to help build up the continent and bridge that with the USA.
That's not how life works, if fact there's less opportunity in some ways because the wealth as already been created. You never heard of the term emerging economies?

Rappers cannot build infrastructure, that's nation building, governments. China have a middle class almost the size of the entire U.S population. You're comparing a population of 40 million people, with a median net worth of $1,700 vs a nation with 1.3 Billion people and the future largest economy.


By all means, head out to Africa and make it happen.

Akon been doing big sh*t in Africa.... Perspective is just different when you and everyone you grew up with literally had NOTHING. can't hate on Jay cuz he's a product of his society (people like Russell Simmons and Diddy fall in the same category). "The American Dream" tells nothing of helping other people so when they get it they keep it.

Can't Jay do more for his black people in Africa, though? A few years back, he was involved in a project where he brought water to remote villages in East Africa, if I can recall. Jay-Z should be doing more of that on the continent.
sure thing, more people in general need to do this .. and bypass the scam that is organised charity .

Jay has no obligation to Africa , if anything Afro American's should look to build Ghana.

As a fortunate, his energy if any needs to be guided towards helping people who grew up in the same struggles as him first.

Anybody name me the last African who donated to Afro American causes?

Sad as it is, home first, wherever you're at.

It would be nice to help the 3rd world .. but don't hold that responsibility on the shoulders of few .

We’re not worthy, I legit just thought about him randomly cause my niece was running the water like she pay a water bill and I thought of Akon doing his thing in Africa providing water and essential needed to survive that we take for granted. Akon really a goat cause he don’t do this sh*t for likes and don’t give a fu*k about ppl not acknowledging his efforts for change

.. what Akon appears to be doing is great. Leveraged himself to make economic changes. He set the marker, let's be real .. Afro youths haven't had that economic figure who's trynna do Warren Buffet moves .. until Jay & Akon started pushing the boundary a bit .. would say Diddy , but he's on some other . Read his eyes fam

Akon is leveraging his impoverish but rich in resource nation//and proxy continent. How can Jay do that in the wealthiest nation on the planet which been developed for over a century?

Let's see what Akon efforts produce for the actual people.

Smells like a Fyre Festival manuever.

Because there is probably not enough electrical powerlines to power the entire city.

So investors. Beware.

Tell that to China. They're setting up shop in every Caribbean and African country to lay down electric grids and road infrastructure.

Yall be on here arguing about the dumbest sh*t. If Akon wants to build a city in Africa, thats good for him. But don't act like hes going it ALL by himself, hes working with a team. That has nothing to do with JayZ.

JayZ can do many other great things for Black ppl that doesnt involve building cities or buying properties. Some of yall wierd mann smh

Akon is making some great moves however the money isn't his money.
He is backed by investors.
I know this as we have the same M&A lawyers as he is frequently in Dubai where we move capital from.
Hov would be tying up his own $.
When Hov makes moves its Hov's $ but Akon's moves are not powered by his own $.

I don’t blame some of these rich a*s n*ggas for not helping. Y’all sound some scorned bi*ches in here. I’d leave y’all behind and not give you a dollar or nothing. And I’d sleep good that night too. n*ggas do all that criticiZing but you ask them about how they helped out their people and it’s crickets
jay z had this interview removed off the net.... saul even posted the email jay sent him
