Jay Z is set to play two benefit concerts in New York City next year (12) in a bid to fund college scholarships.
The Empire State of Mind hitmaker will perform at the iconic Carnegie Hall on the 6 and 7 of February (12) with proceeds benefiting the United Way and the rapper's owner charity, the Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation.
The money will be used to help lower-income families finance college dreams and help underprivileged students graduate on time.
He says, "It's every artist's 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."
