Jayz at Carnegie Hall

 

For nine years Jay-Z, whose real name is Shawn Carter, has operated his foundation with his mom, Gloria Carter, that each year provides college scholarships to more than a 120 students from poor backgrounds. The foundation has distributed about $1.4 million to 750 students since 2002.

Jay  was the first solo rapper in history to perform at the legendary venue where he did two shows on February 6 an 7th.

“It’s every artists dream to play a venue as legendary as Carnegie Hall. The fact that I can use the arts and my talent to benefit the education of the next generation of artists, entrepreneurs, and great thinkers makes for a legendary night. I’m proud to be a part of the continuing work of United Way of NYC and expanding the Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation.”
