 In a world where crab mentality is a norm in some places, it is great to see brothers lifting one another up, celebrating each other's victories. Feeling genuine happiness for somebody else's success if hard to come by nowadays, and this just proves how good of a friend Diddy is. 

Giving Back to Others

Speaking of good, Jay-Z has made sure to stay good, humble, and true despite all the success and wealth he's had in life. He and his wife, Beyonce, never forgot where they came from and are big advocates of helping other people.

Recently, the Carters surprised a fan in their concert with a $100,000 college scholarship. They described the recipient as a future marine biologist, a torch club president, and keystone vice-president. At that moment, Mikayla Lowry, 17, knew that it was her.

The 17-year-old never thought she'd get a scholarship after attending the "On The Run II" concert, but that's exactly what she got. 

A Culture of Generosity

This is only one of the many good deeds that the couple has done, as they've also recently purchased a lot to build a school.
