What's it like to attend a charity carnival hosted by Jay-Z? Apparently it involves mingling with Yankee pitcher CC Sabathia and Roots drummer ?uestlove, while enjoying free food from The Spotted Pig. Sweet life. We wouldn't expect anything less from the hip-hop mogul!

But that doesn't mean Jay-Z is exempt from the backlash of Brooklyn's rising property costs.

When speaking to reporters at the event for his Shawn Carter foundation, Jay-Z said the borough of his birth might be out of his price range now:

I have been thinking about it, but the prices over there are really high. It's not like before!

The rapper, who currently owns a small stake in the newly coined Brooklyn Nets, is also famously a father-to-be.

It remains to be seen if we'll see Jay and Beyonce walking through Brooklyn farm markets stroller in tow.
