During a recent sit-down with Gayle King, JAY-Z weighed in on the viral online debate over whether $500,000 or dinner with him is worth more.

“You’ve gotta take the money. What I’mma say?” the Brooklyn rapper insisted, before noting that all his wisdom is included in his music. “You’ve got all that in the music for $10.99. Because you got all that in the music for $10.99. That’s a bad deal. I wouldn’t tell you to cut a bad deal. Like, take the $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, for what it is, it’s all there. Everything that I said was going to happen, happened. Everything that I said I wanted to do, I’ve done, and there’s The Blueprint,” he added, referencing his 2001 album. “The Blueprint — literally — to me, and my life and my journey is there already.” Check out the clip below. The two-part interview is set to air this Thursday (Oct. 26) and Friday (Oct. 27) on “CBS Mornings.”

As previously reported by REVOLT, the “dinner with JAY-Z or $500,000?” debate also made its rounds at the Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Chargers football game last Monday (Oct. 16) when a fan by the name of K Rich approached the Roc Nation boss. “I’m taking that $500,000. I ain’t taking that dinner. I’m taking that $500,000,” the man said during the unexpected encounter. JAY-Z then replied, “Be good, man.”

In the Instagram video’s comments, someone wrote, “Bro wasted a very iconic moment with a question Hov didn’t even [answer].” Another person added, “The approach could have been iconic, but the topic threw off the vibes. Just dap the man up and keep [the] conversation you were excitedly having between you and whoever.”
