Jay-Z settles this debate once and for all.
In an interview with Gayle King, Jay-Z says the $500K would hold more value as you can get knowledge from him from his music. "You gotta take the money," Jay advised.
Gayle King noted that fans argue a lunch with him would be more beneficial than the money. In which Jay-Z disagrees. "Because you got all that in the music for $10.99," he said. "That's a bad deal. I wouldn't tell you to cut a bad deal. Take $500,000, go buy some albums, and listen to the albums. It's all there if you piece it together and really listen to the music for the words."
He continued, "It's all there. Everything that I said was gonna happen happened. Everything that I said i wanted to do, I've done. There's the blueprint. The blueprint literally to me and my life and my journey is there already."
