New York, NY - Many are applauding Jay-Z’s 13th studio album 4:44 for its transparency and shedding light on personal issues such as infidelity, the infamous elevator fight, and his mother’s sexuality, however others are calling this a huge step toward Black liberation. 

In fact, acclaimed author, motivational speaker and financial educator, Ash Exantus better known as Ash Cash boldly claims that "Jay Z's 4:44 is the blueprint to bridging the wealth gap & solving economic inequalities for African-Americans!"

Exantus states, "When Jay proclaimed 'Financial Freedom is our only hope' in the album’s debut song 'Story of OJ' he wasn't exaggerating.

A recent report titled 'The Road to Zero Wealth' looks at the past 30 years of wealth accumulation across racial lines, as well as what the future will bring if current trends continue; it comes to the conclusion that by 2053, just 10 years after the country is projected to become majority non-white, Black median families will own zero wealth and twenty years later, Latino median families will follow suit. White median families will continue to own six figures.

The key words here are: 'If current trends continue!' That’s why it’s imperative that we get our collective economic lives together!"

The Wake Up Call: Financial Inspiration Learned from 4:44 + A Step by Step Guide on How to Implement Each Financial Principle is a curriculum created to teach people how to use the financial principles in 4:44 to create true economic freedom, break the cycle of poverty, and build generational wealth. Exantus, a fifteen-year banking executive who travels the country spreading the message of fiscal responsibility, is on a mission to help build our community financially.

    "Jay-Z is becoming a leader in the economic development of our people." -- Minister Louis Farrakhan

The 4:44 inspired Wake Up Call curriculum will teach participants everything they need to know from credit, how to buy real estate and the power it holds in the wealth creation process to cooperative economics and how to start a business the right way.

The curriculum also tackles spirituality and discusses how "This Spiritual S#@t Really Works" especially when it comes to finances. Exantus, launched the first round of workshops at NJCU in New Jersey and is scheduled for stops in the Bronx, NY and Washington DC later this month with more dates to follow.
