Jay-Z’s Tidal to donate $1.5 MILLION to the Black Lives Matter movement 

COIN BLESSINGS…

 
Jay-Z’s streaming music service, Tidal, has recently announced that it’ll soon be doing waaaaay more than blessing fans with LIT music as it has committed donating $1.5 million to the Black Lives Matter movement.  

 
YAAASSSS… 

 
On Friday (Feb. 5), the 46-year-old “Money Ain’t A Thing” spitter’s newly formed company strategically revealed the tea of their BLM financial blessing on what would have been the 21st birthday of the late Trayvon Martin–a black teen mercilessly shot and killed by George Zimmerman in February 2012. 

 
The organization tapped to receive a cut of the Tidal’s massive donation include: Opportunity Agenda, Hands Up United, Sankofa.Org, Community Coalition, Dream Defenders, Black Youth Project, Baltimore Justice Fund, Empowerment Development Corporation, Million Hoodies, NY Justice League, Ohio Students Association/Organizing Collaborative, the Trayvon Martin Foundation, the Michael O.D. Brown We Love Ours Sons and Daughters Foundation, and the Oscar Grant Foundation.
