Jay-Z To Warren Buffett: The Right Way To Sell Your Craft For Profit | Forbes

Published 8 months ago

Forbes is honoring the 10th anniversary of the conversation between Warren Buffett, Jay-Z and Steve Forbes by releasing never-before-seen clips from the interview. Here, hip hop icon Jay-Z – who would later become a billionaire himself – discusses the importance of staying true to your artistic vision, and to never compromise that vision for profit. Instead, he says, build the product you want to make and then find a way to sell it. "…After you finish [in the studio], market it to the world," he says to Warren Buffett, the billionaire founder of Berkshire Hathaway. "There’s nothing wrong with that."

This interview was videotaped at Warren Buffett’s Omaha office in 2010.
