Jay-Z took to Instagram to state, “Equipping our youth with the tools to succeed will always be a priority for me and my family. I’m looking forward to continuing that mission at this year’s Shawn Carter Foundation Gala Weekend, where we’ll celebrate our scholars and continue to support young people in a meaningful way.”
