Fans can purchase signed jackets from Jay Z, J Cole & others as donations to help those effected by the recent Hurricanes.
This is a pretty dope move by Roc Nation. To help support relief efforts for those affected by Hurricane Harvey, Irma & Maria, the Roc has reportedly teamed up with One America Appeal and CharityBuzz, to host an auction of memorabilia from this year’s Made In America Festival signed by JAY-Z, J.Cole, and more. The auction of course will raise money to which will be donated for the victims of the recent hurricanes.
As for what’s up for sale & auction, the pieces include 4 camouflage jackets that have the official, celebrity seal of approval on them. The Rocky jacket, which is estimated to be worth $3,000, includes handwritten signatures from JAY-Z, Migos, J. Cole, and Pusha T. The Liberty stage jacket will feature autographs from JAY-Z, Cardi B, 21 Savage, Marshmello and more. The Freedom stage will have signatures from London On Da Track, Vanic, Dirty South, Salva, and Cash Cash. Meanwhile lastly, the Tidal stage will have autographs from A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Jorja Smith, KYLE, Nick Grant, and more. The auction will begin Sept. 26 at 10 EST and end Tuesday, Oct. 10 at 5 p.m. EST.
However Roc Nation isn't the only venture of Jay Z’s stepping up and donating to Hurricane efforts. Tidal and Vic Mensa most recently partnered with MusicCares for two pop-up shows in Los Angeles and New York City. The show was established in order to gain supplies and donations for the hurricane victims. To gain entry as a fan, each person was required to bring toiletries or school supplies that would be donated to the various regions affected. While the LA show went down this past weekend, the NYC show is going down this Saturday, 9/30. RSVP for the NYC show is still open for now. If you can't make it, the show will also be streaming live on Tidal as well.
In addition to these shows by Roc Nation, Jay Z himself is rumored to be taking the stage with his wife Beyonce on October 17 for a relief benefit concert at the Barclays Center. It will be Bey's first performance since giving birth to twins Sir and Rumi Carter earlier this yea
However, Jay Z isn't the only hip-hop figure who has donated to Hurricane relief efforts of course. Chris Brown, T.I., Nicki Minaj, DJ Khaled & more have all donated $25k as part of Kevin Hart’s #HurricaneHarvey challenge, meanwhile Diddy, Trae The Truth, and more have also made considerate contributions.
