According to Cuomo Communications Director Melissa DeRosa, “Governor Cuomo and Shawn ‘JAY Z’ Carter had a productive conversation about doing a top to bottom review of the Criminal Justice system and how we can all work together to pass a reform package that ensures equality in the eyes of the law.”
In addition to this meeting, a story by Shaun King of the Daily Kos cites several philanthropic contributions that Hov makes on a regular basis. Along with financial contributions to the people on the frontlines in Ferguson, the Roc Nation CEO has paid to send hundreds of high school kids averaging a 2.7 gpa or below. The Brooklyn MC has, and continues, to pay the collgege, the college tuition of Sean Bell’s children.
Hopefully, this will finally silence all of the critics. Kudos to Jay and all he continues to do.
