Jay-Z made a huge announcement at his press conference at Carnegie Hall this morning. His Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation is teaming up with New York's United Way for a fab cause.
Jay announced he will be performing at the legendary Carnegie Hall for two nights of performances...all to benefit both his Shawn Carter Scholarship Fund and New York's United Way charities.
The performances will be on February 6 and 7th. With tix on sale privately December 12th and limited public tickets January 30th.
He was spotted hopping in his Maybach before heading uptown for the announcement this morning:
And thanks to our homies at Rap Radar, here's some footage of what Mr. Carter had to say about it all:
“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 New York City and expanding the Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation.”
