jay-z*Rapper Jay-Z’s donations to his own charities are under fire , according to The Daily.

Many believe the rich should give back and The Daily went digging and found Jay-Z made $63 million in 2010 and only donated $6,000 to his own Shawn Carter Foundation.

Jay-Z’s representatives deny the claim and point to a benefit concert he threw last year which raised over $1 million.

“Jay, along with his family, provided office support, overhead support, [mother] Mrs. Gloria Carter’s 100% effort and time, computers, FedEx expenses, accounting, and treasury function support. This was at no cost to the charity,” Jay-Z’s publicist Jana Fleishman said in an email to The Daily.

Jay-Z reportedly gave 0.01 percent of his earning to charity while a typical American donates about 3 percent.
