Jay Z Gives $1.5 Million To Black Lives Matter And Other Orgs


(AllHipHop News) Jay Z’s TIDAL will donate $1.5 million to Black Lives Matter and related organizations.

The hefty donation comes on the birthday of Trayvon Martin, who would have been 12-years old if he were not murdered by a security guard.

The money for the donation was raised at a recent concert TIDAL held in Brooklyn that boasted perfomrances from Jay Z and Beyonce.

The money will be divided among a number of other organizations. A complete list is below.

Opportunity Agenda, Hands Up United, Sankofa.Org, Community Coalition, Dream Defenders, Black Youth Project, Baltimore Justice Fund, Empowerment Development Corporation, Million Hoodies, NY Justice League, Ohio Students Association/Organizing Collaborative, the Trayvon Martin Foundation, the Michael O.D. Brown We Love Ours Sons and Daughters Foundation, and the Oscar Grant Foundation.

    • Raheem Classick

      Anthony Mason has already posted A sly comment”

  • DrakeDoesn’tWrite

    INB4 “only 1.5 million”

    Before you even post it STFU you didn’t give sh*t.

    Greatest Of All Time

    • RapItUp

      Without a doubt, the OVERALL best to do it.. His tenure in rap is like the panthers ’15-’16 season. One loss, and a DAMN good run despite that! (Considering they win the big game) lol

  • Xxplosive 1

    Myyyyyyyyy N!gga!!!

  • mademan3000

    The kid was already older than 12, wow who writes this ish!!! Smdh!!!

    • Drunk and stoned AHH “writers” of course. LOL.

      He must have had too much whisky before booting up his computer.

  • Real Talk

    BLM is a fraud movement…the organisers don’t care about black lives taken by other blacks

    • The Legendary Troll

      you must be white

      • Real Talk

        You are smarter than that

      • Ismaaiyl Brinsley

        Whites don’t care about terrorism when whites do it. All your race does is complain about people then sit on their websites and copy their culture

      • hiphop is built around stealing music from cultures. jussayin

      • Celz

        Yea one culture stealing culture from their parents old dusty records.

      • RapItUp

        No, he’s not..

    • W.E.B. Du Bois

      wrong dumbass – the movement is against the justice system letting killers of blacks get away

      • Celz

        That’s a good point if a gang member shoots my brother it’s horrible but there will be justice, but if a cop unlawfully shoots my brother it will take lawsuits and an enormous amount of resources to get justice.

        A courthouse here in Cali forgot to tell the DMV I handled a ticket and got my car impounded. It took me over a year to get my money back and they lied and said there is no way for me to be reimbursed. Point is.. If a nicca robs a store the owner sometimes doesn’t have to do anything, that’s how the system should work in all scenarios..

    • Celz

      Lmao you believe media headlines.. Lol my cousin is with BLM in Chicago most of their marches are about gang violence.. But you would have to show up to find out because media conglomerates can’t sell ads with that coverage so they don’t promote it.

    • Celz

      You have to literally beg to get the news media to show up to a stop the violence rally.. Us vs Them sells.. Not us help him.. You can’t rely on what they feed you. Follow the money, people have passions and interests. Corporations legally are persons but their only interest is generating revenue, doing anything that doesn’t maximize revenue is actually contradictory to the corporations sole purpose for existing. It wouldn’t make sense for CNN to tell you about a stop the violence rally in Chicago; if you really cared you would find out on your own.

  • The Legendary Troll

    LOL so Jay didnt donate nothing. it was the company.

    • RapItUp

      Jay owns a large stake in the company, dipshit..

    • W.E.B. Du Bois

      lol ? at what shithead ? – oh I know , – you whites still getting away today with a million vids posted right now , showing you still sexually attacking babys

    • Celz

      Where do you think his wealth is at? You think Jay chillin with 100 mil liquid losing value to inflation? Come on bruh..

  • Ismaaiyl Brinsley

    Honkys hate to see black people support each other. Yall don’t care about mass murders against your own race until muslims do it, yet you wanna cry about black lives matter. Just go back to your race on reddit.

    • Naa bro, lets not jump on the band wagon because it generates “likes”

      Have you ever opened your eyes and analysed the way some black people treat each other? Sometimes they even treat each other much worse that other races treat us.

      Racism exists no doubt, but lets not forget that many black folks using the slogan ” black lives matter” don’t really give a flying FUNK about black lives. I’ve seen white folks treat blacks with dignity whilst black folks treat fellow blacks with disdain.

      By the way I’m black too.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        foh shithead – you a lying weezil race white or a copier of them, typing like you know all of us , when I bet you don’t know one , cuz your face aint smashed in – another proof you white or copier is your failed attempt at deflecting from whites allowing their race to get away with millions of vids posted and shared of themsevelves sexually attacking millions of babys

      • A.P. Millz-CT

        You are not black!

      • With all due respect, you must be visually Impaired if your comment is based on you seeing me in real life. You’ve got the wrong person fella.

        I’m baffled as to why you’re stating I’m not black!!!!!

        If I was in the US I wouldn’t vote Obama unless I agree with his policies. I suppose that’ll make me a sell out too right?

  • It’s all about putting up or shutting up. While some idiots believe this money isn’t coming directly from Jay Z’s pockets, people need to realize that if any other person were at the helm of this company, Black Lives Matters wouldn’t have gotten jack sh*t. Power is not only money. Power is influence too. Educate yourselves you ignorant f-cks….

    • dbn1976

      Says the ignorant f-ck who ignores the fact that millions who aren’t part of any company, have donated time, money, and many, many more resources to BLM and many other organizations without the press knowing.

      • This is where learning how to read and pay attention matters. Maybe your dumb ass was sleeping throughout elementary school, but any-who….

        What is the subject of this article? Is it:

        A. About the millions of people that have donated to various organizations?

        B. About the people that have secretly donated to various organizations without a press release?

        Or

        C. About the funds totaling $1.5 Million that Jay Z and Tidal raised at a concert and donated to various organizations.

        If you chose A or B, take your dumb non reading ass to school with the quickness. No reading assholes needed.

      • dbn1976

        Replied the ignorant f-ck with no education. You were the dummy talking about power when the subject of this article was about the funds totaling $1.5 Million that Jay Z and Tidal raised at a concert and donated to various organizations.

        Go get yourself some education you dumb f-ck!

      • Yeah, it hurt when I roasted your nonreading ass. Hahaha…. You want more? Okay. Let me get my belt and son your dumb ass again.

        You really think this White as f*ck organization that recently became blacker due to the musicians involved, would’ve donated that loot to a Black organization without black ass Jigga at the helm? If so, go stand your ignorant ass in the corner for 30 minutes. My comments were relevant. Yours weren’t.

      • dbn1976

        Yeah it was only relevant to a bunch of dummies like yourself.

    • Inmadopicouroz✓QUEENSᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Trayvon was way older than 12 yrs old. I swear AHH staff more retarded than most of the commentators.

      • they said he was 12 years old today… clearly they got the 1 and 2 backwards. since he would really be 21

      • Inmadopicouroz✓QUEENSᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        its a shame that people cant take 5 mins or less to review and proof read a 10 line article. That’s how long it would take a monkey.

      • ehhh.. yeah.. but its not some important article.

      • aokot5

        I noticed that too and they said “if he wouldnt have got killed by a security guard” lol

      • Inmadopicouroz✓QUEENSᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        Lol smh

  • JamalFromGhostwriter

  • Golgo 13

    • RapItUp

    • Keyser Soze

      Exactly… The writer and editor should be smacked…

      • This site is beyond pathetic. Only thing keeping it afloat is the comments. Bruh would have been 21. I don’t even get how that was a mistake.
