Jay-Z 502

Jay-Z is a stand up guy. Dig how he’s looking out for Sean Bell’s kids:

“Shawn ‘Jay-Z’ Carter has established an educational trust for the for the children of Sean Bell, the unarmed African-American man who was shot and killed by police on the day he was to be married. Nicole Bell appeared prominently in Jay-Z’s Rocawear “I Will Not Lose” advertising campaign with images that caused indignation within the NYPD’s Benevolent Association.”

Damn, he’s been on some serious benevolence these days. Kudos to Jay-Z on this classy show of kindness. He definitely gets a pass on the Camel comments, for the time being.

    I heard this on Wendy earlier. I’m a fan of his but I respect him even more now. He’s not rapping about it he’s doing something to help those kids.

  • ADE KONGIS

    Thats a good look. Roc Boys in da building!!!

  • DaisyDooks

    I wouldn’t say that Jay-Z is ugly. He’s not a bad-looking man. Would he receive more approval if he had more anglo features instead of the strong, bold, african features he possesses?

  • Lush-Us Lipps

    Big UPS to Jigga – Doing things in a major way! Other celebrities need to take notes!

  • Frog-a-licious

    That’s Great.

  • DaOne

    Good Look Jay-Z. For putting your money where your mouth is…and extremely good look for not having to “raise” money for this cause. It kills me when celebs raise money from us…I’m like just donate and write it off damn!!!

  • Kamee'

    What a wonderful thing of him to do. We need our men to be leaders and proactive about making an impact by making moves like this.

    Open letter to black men:

    PLEASE REGAIN CONTROL OF YOUR HOMES! WE NEED YOU! WE NEED YOUR GUIDANCE! WE LOVE YOU. WE NEED YOUR LOVE! OUR CHILDREN NEED YOUR LOVE DAILY. THEY NEED YOU IN THEIR LIVES DAILY,not just being apart of their lives. Us black women haven’t given up yet. WERE ARE OUR MEN?
