If hip hop artists want to know how to get to Carnegie Hall, they may want to ask Jay-Z. In February 2012, the rapper will team up with The United Way via his charity, the Shawn Carter Foundation to put on two benefit concerts at New York City’s famed concert venue. The Carnegie Hall concerts will take place on February 6th and 7th.

Tickets will be sold first via a private sale to corporations and philanthropists on December 12th. Private sale tickets will range from $500 to $2,500. A select few tickets will be released for sale to the public on January 30th.

The Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation is unique in that it offers scholarships to single mothers, children who attend alternative schools, students who have earned a GED, students with grade point averages of 2.0 and students who have previously been incarcerated, etc. but desire a higher educational opportunity.

Jay-Z knows the value of a dollar and an education.
