7 Things Jay Z And Mark Zuckerberg Discussed At Facebook HQ
July 30, 2013 - 5:18 pm
#1. The possibility of Zuckerberg signing an endorsement deal with Rocawear.
When is the last time that you saw the Facebook CEO in anything other than a hoodie? Go ahead and give it some thought. We'll wait…Can't come up with anything, can you? That's because Zuckerberg is always in a hoodie. From public appearances to the Facebook offices, he lives in hoodies. So why not turn that love for hoodies into an endorsement deal with the Roc? If he's going to wear nothing but sweatshirts anyway, he might as well get paid for it.

#2. What it feels like to be a billionaire.
Back in April, Jay Z and Beyonce became one of the most successful power couples in the world when their collective net worth reached $1 billion. But Jay himself still has a looooooong way to go before he catches up with Zuckerberg, who made $3.8 billion last week (!) after Facebook's stock price soared. He's now worth almost $20 billion. So we wouldn't be surprised if Jay asked him a few questions about what it takes to reach a billie, which is clearly one of his goals.

#3. How to block people on Facebook who post nothing but pictures of food.
Even though he just released his latest album through a smartphone app, Jay Z is still learning the ropes when it comes to technology. And if he's anything like us, he's probably getting really, really annoyed with it. How many pictures of breakfast, lunch, and dinner can one man take?! Zuck is definitely the one guy who knows how to make it stop.

#4. Justin Timberlake's venture into the world of social media.
You know who probably wasn't happy to see Jay Z rubbing elbows with Zuckerberg? JT! He bought a large stake in MySpace a couple years ago and recently relaunched an updated version of the social media site. So he couldn't have been happy to see Jay spending time with Zuck. But maybe Jay was just asking him for some advice for JT here. Yeah, that must have been it. Way to be a good friend, Jay.

#5. Why Zuckerberg owes Jay Z a couple million for all the status updates he's provided on Facebook this summer.
Have you seen how many Magna Carta Holy Grail lyrics have crept up on your Facebook feed in the last month? A LOT. Everyone loves using MCHG quotes for their status updates. And with the title track, "Holy Grail," creeping up the charts, there will be more coming. So the way we see things, Zuck owes Jay a couple dollars for helping keep the site afloat this summer.

#6. The time Zuckerberg thought he hired 50 Cent to be his director of sales.
You've heard about this, yes? Recently, it was revealed that Zuckerberg once hired a guy who he thought was 50 Cent to run his sales department. He saw a photo of the actual guy he hired along with 50 Cent on his Facebook page and assumed that he was hiring Fif. Talk about embarrassing. We hope Jay asked him about it.

#7. Privacy laws, privacy policies, privacy regulations, privacy practices, and anything and everything related to privacy.
C'mon, guys. Isn't it obvious what Jay Z and Zuckerberg were talking about? Privacy! Both of them have come under fire in recent times for violating peoples' privacy—Zuckerberg by making it damn-near impossible to keep your personal info private on Facebook and Jay Z by endorsing a Samsung app that collected info on anyone who downloaded it. So privacy had to be the topic of discussion last week, right? Too bad we'll never know because the discussion between Jay and Zuck was, well, private. Hmph.
