on

Jay Z is making major moves with Roc Nation Sports and he’s bringing some of his celebrity friends along for the ride.

Jadakiss, Fabolous, T.I., DJ Khaled, E-40, Alex Rodriguez, Miguel Cotto,Terrell Owens, Yandel, RotimiNick Jonas, Justine Skye, and Dave East were just some of the rappers and athletes to attend the company’s 2016 Summer Classic Charity Basketball Tournament.

Jose Cotto and Jonas served as the bball captains alongside CC Sabathia, Robinson Cano. But the event, which was held in Jay Z’s hometown in Brooklyn’s Barclay’s Center, wasn’t just for fun’s sake, it was also for a good cause.

All the proceeds from the event went to four different benefits including PitCCh In Foundation, which serves to “enrich the lives of inner city youth,” the RC22 Foundation, an organization dedicated to helping underserved kids locally and globally as well as bring better healthcare to the community. Fundacion El Angel de Miguel Cotto and Beyond Type 1, which also serves underrepresented communities, was also on the roster of beneficiaries.

Jay Z announced his new venture into sports management a few years ago and it’s since then its taken off. So far, he’s signed Sabathia and WNBA player Skylar Diggins.
