Jay-Z isn’t afraid to speak up and tell things like he sees them. We’re in a pandemic, and most meetings are over Zoom, but you still have to come correct.

Damson Idris was recently on Good Morning America where the Snowfall star revealed a very interesting virtual encounter with Jay-Z. He apparently didn’t put a shirt on, and that was not a wise call.

“At the start of the pandemic, I didn’t know what Zoom was. I was a Skype guy. My friend said to jump on Zoom, it was our friend Lenny’s birthday. So I jump on the Zoom and immediately everyone’s laughing because I’m topless. I thought there was gonna be four people in there– there are literally 40 people in there.”

“I hear a distinctive voice and [he’s] like, ‘Ay man, this man’s in here topless with his nipples out and he got the grey headboard. Who’s in charge of the Zoom? Yeah, you see that guy Damson? Kick him out.”


He had no idea that 40 people would be on this Zoom party. There were some pretty big names joining the call like Meek Mill, Tiffany Haddish, Dave Chappelle, Kevin Hart, Michael B. Jordan, and more. Damson really wishes he would have thrown on a shirt for that moment in time. He was on the call for a birthday, but he had no idea how high profile the virtual get-together would be.

After explaining that he was late and he was about to “put on a hoodie and go to bed,” Jay-Z asked him “you wear a hoodie to bed?”

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
