“I’ve always admired and respected his business acumen,” Ray J told the outlet. “Our conversation was about job creation, encouraging small business development, and how Information Technology plays an important role in the future of our economy.
Ray J added, “We also agree how important an educated workforce is, as well as the critical need of developing of young people. I’m ready to get started now!”
Page Six adds that the pair intend to meet again to discuss these forthcoming plans at a later date
