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!

FREE JUNK FOOD? NO THANK YOU. THESE TWO ARE SO GREEDY AND CHEAP. OUR KIDS NEED TO HAVE A STABLE DIET. NO WONDER KIDS ARE SO FAT TODAY. HOW ABOUT GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY IN WAYS THEY CAN ACTUALLY BENEFIT? HOW ABOUT A SCHOLARSHIP? IMPROVED HOUSING? THEY DON'T FOOL ME ONE BIT. THE ONLY THING THESE TWO ARE CONTRIBUTING TO THE COMMUNITY IS HIGH CHOLESTORAL AND BAD EATING HABITS.

Actually, Truth, Harvey doesn't take money for stories....but you are right about the PR...I hear Buffalo Boss has a publicist that got them the story-www.uneed2succeed.com is the site....it's called YNTS: You Need To Succeed Inc and is probably on facebook. Why hate when you can congratulate? Exposure brings revenue...every one needs cash! Have a great day!

LOL, I thought that was Beyonce. When I found out it was his sister, that definitely was weird to find out.

Their slogan should be--"You've got 99 problems, but the chicken ain't one!"

Tres,

Do Beyonce & Jay-Z owe you money or something? You've got a lot of anger at 6am. Hope you don't work around "our" children.

Some of you are idiots. That's clearly NOT Jay-Z's sister in the photo. The mention of his sister being an investor is an anecdote but she's not in the photo. It's the reason they don't have her position listed as "above left" like his mother or "above right" like the cousin. T-H-I-N-K people!

Buffalo Boss isn't the reason most U.S. children are overweight. Giving deserving kids a free hot meal is great. Investing in a family members SOLID business venture is also great. This is a local business that's bringing a few jobs to the community and providing a service. If you don't like wings, don't support the the place but not liking Beyonce' or Jay-Z's music isn't a reason not go--they're not cooking the food.

Reading most of these comments is a prime example of why certain people stay on the lower rungs of society. *Sigh*

Us black folk may like to eat the chicken, BUT those other folks like to have SEX with the chickens, and other sick acts as such (if you know who I am talking about!. Being a beautiful black person isn't looking so bad afterall now is it? :) P.s. Instead of worrying about what our kids are eating, why don't you worry about who YOUR kids are out shooting due to their seemingly increasing mental illness.
RIP to the victims of the Arizona shooting, and to Jared Loughner YOUR PARENTS let you down son!

Calm down dude if you were missing a pound of hair like the queen bee it would be hard to recognize you too.
