Damson Idris once told a funny story about Jay-Z clowning him for jumping on a Zoom call shirtless.
Idris, who is British, is now saying the billionaire rapper helped him secure a green card.
“He didn’t offer that up, I had to ask,” the actor told Complex. “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 … 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,” added Idris. “Rich Paul did too. Tommy Schlamme, Eric Schrier, a bunch of 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.”
On another note, Idris does a pretty accurate impression of Jay, which he did while telling that story about the Zoom call.
