99 Problems, But Making Bank Ain’t One

Move over, Wu-Tang Financial… there’s a new hip-hop finance collab coming down the pike. Warren Buffett’s upcoming series for kids, “Secret Millionaire’s Club,” promises to gives kids advice about money management – and hip-hop mogul Jay-Z, we’re told, has a role:

Jay-Z has had a lot of big-time collaborations this year–a record with Kanye West, a coming baby with Beyonce, and now the mogul-rapper is doing an animated show with Warren Buffett.

Jay-Z and Buffett will appear in “Secret Millionaires Club,” an animated series that debuts on The Hub this Sunday, October 23. (Buffett, of course, belongs to the even more exclusive, not-so-secret billionaires club.)

Word. We’ve long considered Jay-Z’s “Money, Cash, Hoes” to be near-gospel so we’re anticipating a video full of heaping helpings of solid financial advice and street credibility.

A few other things we think y’all will enjoy:

- CBOT to Occupy Chicago: We are the 1%, what’s your point? (belated h/t to Bart L!)

- Was banditry afoot when a group showed up to close their Citibank accounts? What is “disruptive” to Citi is “jazz hands” to others, and there’s plenty of video, so you make the call. (belated h/t to @jmccyoung!)

- More lighthearted: who needs a national currency when you can just pass David Bowie notes around your neighborhood?

Also if you’re wondering where I’ve been lately, I’ve been getting around, I suppose. My latest work: Theme Cruises Gone Wild for the Huffington Post.

More soon. I’ve got something on the Fed and sentiment analysis in the hopper. ;)
