Snowfall Actor Damson Idris told a hilarious story on Good Morning America about Jay-Z dissing him on a Zoom call.
As he explained, he got on the call to celebrate the birthday of Roc Nation senior vice president of A&R, Lenny S. The story was told amid reports that say Hov is now 40% richer than he was before after selling his champagne company Armand de Brignac and a"significant majority" of his streaming company TIDAL.
The actor wasn't familiar with Zoom then and thought only four people were going to be on. But when he jumped on the call, there were at least 40 people on there, most of them celebrities. Idris was shirtless, so Jay-Z clowned him for it.
“I jump on the Zoom and immediately everyone’s laughing because I’m topless,” Idris explained, right before imitating Jay. "And I hear a distinctive voice and the voice is like, ‘Hey man, this man on here topless with his nipples out and he got the gray headboard. Yo, who’s in charge of this Zoom? Yo Schaffer, you in charge of this Zoom? Yeah, you see that guy Damson, kick him out.'”
Idris then said he tried to explain why he had his nipples out.
"I’m like ‘Hey guys, you know it’s late in London let me just get a hoodie, I was going to bed, you know how it is,'”he explained.
‘Ok,'”the actor said Jay told him. “‘So you wear a hoodie to bed? OK, well, you know, you busy, like you said. You in London, so obviously, you know it’s Lenny’s birthday, so why don’t you give your little speech and be on your way.”
