Jay-Z -- Money, Cash, Chicken Wings

1/11/2011 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Wanna invest like Jay-Z? Then it's time to put your money where your mouth is ... the chicken wing business!

TMZ has learned Jay-Z -- along with his mother Gloria (above left) and sister Andrea -- secretly invested in a buffalo wing joint in Brooklyn called Buffalo Boss.

It's not just because wings are delicious -- Jay's first cousin Jamar White (above right) is one of the owners.

The joint is already making a positive impact in the community -- recently rewarding outstanding students at a local middle school with FREE FOOD! How awesome is that?!

Forget the mic ... pass the blue cheese!

Jay Z couldn't put a decent piece of music out of his own right now if he wanted to. He's too damn busy whoring out his name to stick it on any and every product as quick as he can. Yet another sell out bites the dust!

Free junk food from a fast food joint IS NOT a benefit for those school children.

We need an article like this every now and then to whet the appetites of the racist neo-nazi losers living in their underground bunkers.

And as I see from one unfortunate post so far, the roaches definitely appeared once TMZ threw out the crumbs.

Idiots are so predictable...

Jay Z and his family opening a business that everyone can enjoy with chicken that is not full of steroids as well as options for vegetarians and those who enjoy sweets is AWESOME! OTHER CELEBRITIES HAVE OPENED RESTAURANTS-WHY NOT JAY-Z....AT LEAST JAY IS BELIEVING IN HIS FAMILY AND NOT BEING SELFISH WITH HIS FUNDS! How many celebrities can we say that about?

ANY BUSINESS THAT REWARDS KIDS WITH ANYTHING THAT IS NOT DRUGS AND ALCOHOL AND SEXUALLY RELATED SHOULD BE COMMENDED! THE KIDS WERE PROBABLY HAPPY THEY DIDN'T HAVE TO EAT THE SCHOOL LUNCH AND THAT SOMEBODY NOTICED THEY WERE DOING RIGHT!
Kudos to you TMZ and Jay Z and Buffalo Boss

The food there is OFF THE CHAIN!!! I think their ideas for giving food to the students in the community is a wonderful idea. What needs to be viewed is the bigger picture, and that is giving school children the recognition for their hard work in school. If an entity from outside of the learning environment can see that, the children will feel better that good grades and hard work isn't just a letter on a piece of paper. Jay-Z, Jamar and the other investors are doing something that other fast food chains aren't doing, and doing it locally for Brooklynites to see. Jay-Z wouldn't put his name on something if it was bad for business or his fans. Check out Buffalo Boss for yourself.

LOOK AT CAMEL TOE FACE AND HIS "SPECIAL" WIFE. SHE PROBABLY DOESN'T EVEN KNOW WHERE THEY ARE. THIS CHIC IS TOTALLY CLUELESS. MONEY SURELY DOESN'T BUY CLASS. SHE NEEDS TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL AND GET HER GED. SHE CAN'T COME UP WITH AN ORIGINAL THOUGHT UNLESS HER PUBLICIST WRITES IT FOR HER. SHE IS SO REHEARSED DOWN TO HER FAKE MODESTY. I HOPE THEY DON'T EVER HAVE CHILDREN. WELL MAYBE I WANT TO TAKE THAT BACK. WE ALL KNOW BEWEAVEABLE WILL BLOW UP. SHE'S ONE HAMBURGER AWAY FROM LOOKING LIKE HER JOKER FACE MOM. AT LEAST I WON'T HAVE TO SEE HER DUMBO EARS,HEAR HER MAN VOICE,OR SEE THOSE TREE TRUNKS SHE CALLS LEGS. YUCK!!!!!!

EXACTLY! HE'S TOO BUSY TRYING TO BE A BRAND. HE AND HIS STUPID WIFE ARE A MATCH MADE IN HELL. I WOULDN'T BUY ANYTHING FROM THESE TWO IDIOTS. IF ONLY HE AND HIS DUMB WIFE ACTUALLY SPENT AS MUCH ENERGY ON THE GARBAGE THEY CALL MUSIC THEY PUT OUT. HE SOLD HIS SOUL TO THE DEVIL A LONG TIME AGO. GREEDY BASTARDS.
