Last October, Jay Z and Beyonce delivered their Tidal X charity concert at New York’s Barclays Center, which featured a slew of marquee names like Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Usher, and more. This time around, the iconic couple plan to continue to showcase their altruism with another charity concert this upcoming October in the Big Apple.
According to The New York Post, they will host their charity concert with the Robin Hood Foundation in hopes of fighting poverty. In addition, Hov and Bey tacked on some familiar faces onto the bill. Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, and Lauryn Hill are slated to perform alongside the couple at Brooklyn’s Barclay Center. Tickets will reportedly range from $50 to $100,000 for V.I.P. packages to raise money for “Robin Hood, education for children in NYC and for charities nominated by the artists.”
Consider this another move in the right direction for Hov. He recently narrated a thought-provoking animated short film that bashed The War on Drugs. To make his efforts even more triumphant, his film was lauded by former presidential hopeful, Bernie Sanders.
The event will be live-streamed on Tidal Oct. 15.
