Although he’s the President of Def Jam, Jay-Z isn’t ready to put his mic down. After appearing on Snoop Dogg’s remix of “Drop It Like Its Hot”, Jay-Z is set to be one of the performers in the Music For Relief concert to support those effected by the tsunami. Alongside Jurassic 5 and Linkin Park, No Doubt and many others, Jay-Z will perform at Arrowhead Pong in Anaheim, California on February 18th. The concert is expected to bring in over $1 million dollars.
“When we started Music for Relief, we hoped to mobilize artists and fans to contribute to the massive relief effort in South Asia,” Linkin Park’s Brad Delson said in a statement to the media. “Due to the incredible support and generosity of so many of our peers and supporters within the music community, Music for Relief has played a vital role in helping get aid to people who most need it.”
Tickets go on sale February 11th.
