"Jay-Z is different bro. He spotted the fake vinyl through all the fan's autographs and cameras flicking and the guy rapping."

@ndo3ske7 commented:

"He probably didn't have enough money to buy it. It doesn't matter. Just sign it. It's people like him/her who made you famous"

@xxxxxxxxxtal reacted:

"I'd rather bring an artist a piece of paper if I'm that broke that I gotta show a bootleg vinyl. It's like showing a painter an AI replica of their work. Mad insulting. I'd hope Jay would have had no problem signing a rhyme book, notebook, or whatever."@itsmecameron18

@itsmecameron18 also said:

"I would have ended it on the spot."

@Naivedyam9 also shared:

"Why not sign it anyway?? Maybe he’s a big fan who couldn’t afford the original and wanted him to sign it on something which is connected to the rapper rather than a plain piece of paper? Big L from Jay Z."

@MLowary added:

"You guys do know all this signed merchandise will appear online and at auctions, for hundreds and thousands of dollars and the buyer is out of there money cause they just brought bootleg merchandise ‍♂️"
