Jay-Z performed the first of two shows at Carnegie Hall in NY yesterday (2/2) to Benefit the United Way of New York City and the Shawn Carter Foundation. The concert is in efforts to “raise dollars that will help fight poverty, boost on-time graduation rates in underserved New York City schools, and put college within reach for low-income students across the five boroughs,” Jay has said. “I want to do my part to make sure everyone has an opportunity,” he explained. “It’s really a shame when someone has drive and really wants to further their education, and they’re unable to because of their financial situation.” During his performance he brought out two of my fav artists Nas AND Alicia Keys. Jay performed many of his classic, Nas did some songs off Illmatic Alicia joined Jay to perform “Empire State Of Mind.” Beyonce also made her first appearance after giving birth to her first child, Blue Ivy Carter.
