Madison Square Garden Says Hi to Jay-Z


Say what you will about the way Blueprint 3 is shaping up (ahem)–Jay-Z still knows how to hold your attention. And the New York Police & Fire Widows’ & Children’s Benefit Fund is a far more admirable comeback vehicle than, say, a Budweiser Select campaign. From Sean Carter himself: “We are asking everyone to ‘answer the call’ and support and honor the families of those that lost their lives. There is a true camaraderie and resiliency this city showed the world in 2001 and we continue that today by taking care of our own.” The “Blueprint 2” lives on. (Meanwhile, Nas would probably do this and take the cash for alimony payments.)
