Jay Z Partners with National Geographic, Katie Couric to Release Docu-Series on Race Relations in America
If anyone ever disses Jay Z again, for any reason at all, they should be cast out of the the hip-hop community forever and be totally ostracized. Why?
Because the guy has created a blueprint — pun fully intended — for rappers to follow after they leave their 20s and 30s. Basically, Hov has shown MCs how to stay cool and relevant, not to mention rich, after they don’t want to rhyme as much.
So far, he’s put out some of the most memorable albums in rap music and has also been a colossal success in a slew of business ventures. And now, Jigga Man is tackling Hollywood, and he’s partnered with one of its heaviest of heavyweights in Harvey Weinsten.
After Jay and The Weinsten Company released the incredible six-part documentary series Time: The Kalief Browder Story, they’ve now partnered with National Geographic to do a piece on race relations in the United States.
According to Variety, the series will simply be called Race, and it’ll specifically examine where we are as a society after Donald Trump’s shocking presidential victory. Plus, the veteran journalist Katie Couric will be involved as the lead reporter.
