Swizz Beatz is giving back to the community. The famed hip-hop producer has adopted a charter school in his hometown of the Bronx, pledging to support their arts program.

Swizzy appeared on 106 and Park yesterday with Diddy and Dirty Money to speak on his contributions. “I just came from the Bronx Charter School For the Arts,” he said. “I’m in the middle of sponsoring them, funding them, helping to rebuild them. Shout out to them, they got an art auction coming up.”

The public elementary school is located in the Hunts Point neighborhood of the South Bronx. For more information on the school visit www.bronxarts.net. —Elan Mancini
