Jay-Z and Bill Gates...

Jay-Z participated in a Strategic Account Summit recently. Both Bill Gates and Jay-Z were interviewed by CNBC host Donny Deutsch.
Bill Gates and Def Jam Recordings CEO Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter were among the highlights of MSN’s Strategic Account Summit, a gathering of top Internet advertising industry notables that took place this week in Redmond, Washington.

The day included its share of star power. Rapper and music mogul Jay-Z chatted backstage with Gates, then sat down for his own on-stage interview with Deutsch. And Deutsch delved into topics worthy of gossip magazines -- quizzing Jay-Z about his relationship with Beyoncé, and getting Gates to acknowledge that, given a choice, he'd prefer not to be known as the world's richest man.

"I wish I wasn't," Gates said. "There's nothing good that comes out of that. ... You get more visibility as a result of it."

This is reason # 143 why Jay-Z is better than Cam'ron. Anyway, click the link below to read about the full happenings of the event. Do you realize just how much money is in that picture below??? I'd happily help Bill Gates get rid of some of his money...
