Jay-Z Appears on Cover of Vanity Fair‘s Africa Issue

jay-vfair.jpgJay-Z will appear on the July cover of Vanity Fair’s Africa issue, which is guest edited by U2 singer Bono. Jay is one of the 20 separate covers Vanity Fair is releasing to increase awareness of the social and political problems plaguing the continent. Jay was chosen to appear on one of the covers due in large part to his charitable work in Africa, helping the continent’s water crisis in an MTV documentary, The Diary of Jay-Z: Water for Life. In addition, for each online subscription sold during the month of June, Vanity Fair will donate $5 to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS.

  • Blaksteel

    Yo,I see alot of comments about gay and what looks gay thats probably because yo ass is a want to be gay but scared to come out. Stop hating and give somebody respect for doing something good for our people, what the fuck have you bitches done for someone besides yourself bitches. Jay is showing growth something HIP-HOP needs at this time.

    JAY’S USING HIS CELEBERTY STATUS TO BRING AWARENESS TO THE ISSUE IN AFRICA.

    AND I GOTTA AGREE WITH “BLACKSTEEL”

    I GOTTA SAY IT’S NOT COOL TO SIT UP IN HERE AND DISRESPECT SOMEONE WHO IS DOING SOMETHING TO BENIFIT OUR PEOPLE.

    I DOUBT ANY OF YOU HAVE DONE ANYTHING FOR YOUR OWN PEOLE IN AFRICA (INCLUDING MYSELF, WHICH WILL SOON CHANGE)

  • Combat Jack

  • shelmadene arnold

    Keep up the good work Jay-Z, you are a fine example of what is possible.

  • damn

    the cover is supposed to look like the message of africa is being spread to people finally thats why george clooney is whispering in hovs ear. on top of that they didnt even shoot the cover together……that shit was like photo shopped in there. homophobic idiots. jay is doin good shit with his celebrity status now. its called maturity for those who dont recognize it.

  • coonduck
