Jay-Z was in ‘year-long talks’ with Hard Rock to host SCF gala

Jay-Z is set to host some of the industry’s biggest stars during this weekend’s Shawn Carter Foundation Gala, being held at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel kin Hollywood, FL.


As if sending out Rolex watches as VIP passes isn’t baller enough, the evening will include a high stakes blackjack tournament — in which rapper Meek Mill is set to participate — and a live concert from Hov’s “Empire State of Mind” collaborator, Alicia Keys. 


“All of us at Hard Rock International are excited to host and contribute to a series of weekend fundraising events put on by Jay-Z and his Shawn Carter Foundation at the $1.5 billion Guitar Hotel expansion of the Seminole Hard Hotel & Casino Hollywood,” said Jim Allen, Chairman of Hard Rock International, exclusively told Page Six. “The celebrity blackjack tournament, gala dinner and concert by Alicia Keys at our new $125 million Hard Rock Live venue are the initial outcome of our year-long talks with the Roc Nation team and we look forward to welcoming Jay-Z and Beyoncé, along with their VIP guests.


Ideally, for Allen, this weekend’s fundraiser will be the first of many partnerships between the Brooklyn-born billionaire and Hard Rock.


“The talent Jay-Z represents and the business concepts he has created at Roc Nation align perfectly with our future goals and plans for Hard Rock.  We look forward to a hugely successful weekend of events and many years of a meaningful partnership with Jay-Z, Roc Nation and the Shawn Carter Foundation.”
