[photogallerylink id=101778 align=left]Jay Z claims to be the world’s best rapper, making about half a billion dollars off his talent…but when it comes to his OWN established charity…well let’s just say he’s a little more on the cheap side when it comes to his own charity…

According to tax records for Jay Z’s Shawn Carter Scholarship Fund examined by “The Daily,” when Jay Z earned approximately $63 million, he donated the minimal amount of $6,431. A little stingy for one of the richest people on the planet, huh?

Forbes estimated that Jay Z’s hot-shot wife, Beyoncé, earned about $87 million. Nonetheless, not a dime of those massive earnings went to her husband’s scholarship fund.

When these facts were surfaced, Jana Fleishman, Jay Z’s publicist, didn’t deny the $6,000 donation. However, she defended the petty donation by saying Jay Z contributes in other ways. One way he contributes is his mother, Gloria Carter, running his foundation without pay…

On a more positive note, Jay Z performed at Carnegie Hall in New York on Monday, Feb. 6, 2012 where proceeds went to his foundation and students of his foundation attended the concert. I guess everyone has their own way of contributing to society!
