Jay Z's latest album 4:44 is not only full of bangers, courtesy of his collaboration with producer No I.D., but it's full of financial and personal gems. It's no secret your credit score actually goes up after two full listens. Okay, okay, that's not necessarily true.
At times, though, it can be difficult for listeners to catch every single gem buried in Jay's 13th studio album. Luckily, Ash Exantus, who is better known as Ash Cash, has a new book titled The Wake Up Call: Financial Inspiration Learned from 4:44 + A Step by Step Guide on How to Implement Each Financial Principle, which is inspired by the teachings handed down in the rapper's album.
"My inspiration for the book was that JAY was giving so much knowledge about how you can become financially free … as an individual as well as how we (as a culture) can break the cycle of poverty in our community," Cash told HipHopDX. "Because some of the concepts may be new to some of us, I wanted to expound more on the blueprint that JAY gave us (pun intended). In essence, JAY gave us the 'what.' My goal with the book was to give the 'how.'"
