Jay-Z is widely acknowledged as one of the most influential artists in the hip-hop industry. He is loved by many people all around the world and his music continues to be chart-toppers. However, Jay-Z played a crucial role in helping Snowfall star Damson Idris acquire a permit to live and work in the US.

Damson Idris recently appeared in an interview with Complex, where he was also featured on the digital cover of the March 2023 issue. During the interview, Idris revealed that he requested a favor from Hov to sponsor his green card application. The Snowfall star thanked the Roc Nation CEO and urged others to do the same, acknowledging his support behind the scenes for Black creatives.

“He didn’t offer that up! I had to ask. But he’s done many things for me over the years, he’s always supported me. He supports everyone. He supports so many people that you don’t even know.

Genuinely, I should tell everyone this right now: if you ever run into JAY-Z, just say thank you and keep it moving. Because he is definitely a pioneer of the culture, but of everything. And I’ve never told him this, but he’s a huge idol of mine. Thank you for that reference.”


I won’t tell you how it happened ’cause there’s a couple more favors that I’m gonna need in the future but yeah, he hooked me up with that. Rich Paul did too. Tommy Schlamme, Eric Schrier — a bunch people hooked me up. They’re people who just believe in me, believe this journey that I’m on and I’m gonna repay the favor to the people coming behind me, too.”

Jay-Z and Damson Idris have developed a close bond over the past few years. They are often seen together at high-profile events such as the Super Bowl, Oscars party, and Roc Nation brunch, among other A-list gatherings.
