The Shawn Carter foundation

Do you wanna ride? Well last night, Jay-Z hosted his Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation carnival in NYC’s Pier 54. The Making The Ordinary Extraordinary event cost $1,000 a ticket and benefited the organization, which launched in 2002 to help socio-economic hardships further education at institutions of higher learning.

Guests included Yankees’ Alex Rodriguez, the foundation’s CEO and Jay’s mother, Gloria Carter and of course Gloria’s warrior, who briefly spoke on the event above.
