In the premiere episode, the rapper tells the kids, "As a teen, you can put your interest in business to good use."

His hit song Empire State of Mind also features in the clip, playing in the background as the youngsters leave Jay-Z's office.

Veteran entertainer Warren Buffett will also appear on the series as a business adviser.
