    Jay-Z is so into himself. I truly wish he were doing this from his heart, but because his album is coming out he’s trying to get people to get the album.

    So Daisy…..was Jay-Z into himself when he donated 1 million dollars of his own money to Hurrican Katrina. I don’t think he had an album out then. Jay-Z is always putting on some charity event or giving his money away to whatever cause but you just don’t hear about it. People rather glorify him getting into it with the Paps or some other silly s@$t
