Saquon Barkley Gets Birthday Toast From Jay-Z, Usher, & Diddy

Some people get a free birthday shake at The Field or a hat at the Phyrst on their birthday.

If you’re Saquon Barkley, you get Jay-Z, Usher, and Diddy singing to you and acknowledging your greatness. Either one works, right?

Such a celebrity-studded celebration was only fitting for Penn State’s own NFL Rookie of the Year, who signed with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation sports agency last year. Amid the red carpet style fashions and personnel was a more familiar birthday tradition.

After his fame-tiered accolades came a three-tiered birthday cake (the usual), allowing our rookie to blow out his candles like a normal birthday boy. Of course, cake probably didn’t fit the diet of such a star athlete, but Saquon was grateful for the elaborate celebration and sang along anyway.
