Jay-Z recruited high school student as producer on new album

WENN

Hip-hop superstar Jay-Z gave a teenage student her big break in the music industry by picking her to help produce a track on his new album.

Bing: Jay-Z licensed as sports agent

Ebony Oshunrinde, also known as Wondagurl, was asked to contribute to "Magna Carta Holy Grail" after a chance meeting with the rapper's friend Travis Scott, who works with Jay-Z and Kanye West. Scott passed along a reggae-inspired beat the 16-year-old had made, and Jay-Z decided to use it for his song "Crown."

The young Canadian, who is still in high school, admits it is a huge honor to see her name in the credits alongside Timbaland, Justin Timberlake, Beyonce and Pharrell Williams.

She explains, "Travis texted me and said, 'I'm about to change your life.' Usually that doesn't happen to 16-year-olds. A lot more people want to work with me now. It's pretty cool."

Millions of dollars for kindergarten lyrics! Any jack-azz <<< (that would be me)...can write a rap song!

 

My name is Jay-Z, People say they hate me, But I just laugh at them & say you all are crazy!

I put every man to shame, cuz I'm the King of the rap game, Even Jesus Christ himself will come to know my pain!

 

I murder like John Gotti.

I drive a Maseratti.

I sound like Pavortti when he's on the potty.

 

I like to rap while I gargle.

So I sound garbled.

Just like Greta Garbo with a mouthful of marbles.

 

I got a solid gold complex.

Houses made by Rolex.

I'm glad I married Beyoncé instead of Kelly Rowland.

 

I eat chicken teriyaki.

I like watching hockey.

And in case you haven't heard, I'm in the Illuminati!

 

My name is Jay-Z, People say they hate me, But I just tell them all they can mazterbate me! I keep girls to the left of me, girls to the right of me. But I got a little secret...Kanye came inside of me!

Thank You Jay Z, there should be more people out there helping our youth with their dreams. Thumbs up. Keep up the good work.  Funny how people hate when people help each other. If this young lady would have said she wanted to work with you and you said no. People would say you were keeping money to yourself. So glad you are doing the right thing. Teach them right. God bless you.
