Jay-Z To Headline Prince's Trust Concert In The U.K.

Jay-Z is gearing up to headline the United Kingdom's

biggest urban concert ever.

The Prince's Trust Urban Music Festival is expected

to draw over 40,000 people on May 8-9.

Jay-Z, who recently went into self-imposed exile

as a recording artist, will appear with other artists such as Alicia Keys, Dizzee

Rascal, Lemar and others.

The concert takes place at the Earl's Court in

London and will also feature unsigned artists performing, breakdancing, graffiti

lessons and other activities.

The Prince's Trust was created in 1976 by the

Prince of Wales.

The concert is aimed at improving the lives of

disadvantaged young people in the UK.
