So last night, Jay-Z reopened his 40/40 Nightclub and super billionaire Warren Buffett showed up to the grand opening. I’m starting to think Jay-Z and Warren are having a bromance. Warren’s throwing up The Roc sign in photos. Jay-Z is appearing on Warren’s kiddie cartoon, Secret Millionaires Club. I know Warren is notoriously frugal and I daresay borderline cheap. Warren used a drawer as a bed for his baby! Ack! I hope Jay-Z doesn’t share that with his friend. Anyway, I doubt Beyonce would allow that for her Blue Ivy!
I wouldn’t think naturally that Brooklyn’s Jay-Z and Omaha’s Warren would have much in common. But, they both earn and keep lots of cash. I guess that must count for something!
So, I want to ask: Does your network determine your networth? If you hang with rich people, do they make your richer? Do poor friends make you poorer? Is class status contagious? As my friend, Coco says, “You are who your friends are.” Is that true?
