Rap mogul Jay-Z has reportedly decided to rally up his Roc Nation entertainment company, 40/40 Club sports bar and Life + Times lifestyle website as a prized package for one lucky winner.
According to reports, Young Hov is taking each of his prized businesses and offering one special person the chance of a lifetime to see each one upclose and personal.
Jay-Z is many things; a rapper, a businessman, a business, man, and also a philanthropist. The legendary emcee is teaming up with the charitable organization, Omaze, in order to provide a once in a lifetime opportunity to a fan while raising money for a worthy cause. The contest will give fans the chance to “go behind-the-scenes at Roc Nation, get creative with the editor of Life+Times, and wine and dine at the 40/40 Club.” All airfare and hotel expenses will also be covered.

While there is a ten dollar donation entry fee, the payoff is helping fuel Jay’s Shawn Carter Foundation.
To enter the contest, fans just have to donate $10 dollars toward the cause, which will go to the Shawn Carter Foundation, a charity founded by Jay and his mother Gloria Carter. The money will go towards giving under-priveleged students the chance to further their education. Every 5 entrees will cover class registration for one student. (Hot New Hip Hop)
