When discussing the details of the meeting, Ray J told sources,

“I’ve always admired and respected his business acumen. Our conversation was about job creation, encouraging small business development and how Information Technology plays an important role in the future of our economy.” 

He continued,

“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!”

Reportedly, the two men already have a follow-up meeting scheduled to further discuss ideas and put things into motion. According to sources, Ray J’s manager also hinted that the “One Wish” singer may have “political aspirations”. Weuntraub said,

“Ray has political aspirations. The clear-cut answer to what those aspirations actually are is to help people and to open doors for people that don’t have doors open.. It’s not like saying Ray wants to be a mayor, Ray wants to be a governor. Maybe he wants to run for Senate, maybe he wants to go back to his roots and help a small town become more empowered.”
