His latest effort to help the Black community came in the form of national newspaper ads that highlight black-owned businesses in their cities to keep people informed on where to spend their dollars to support the people. Something that’s especially needed these days as millionaires and billionaires pillage the PPP loan program that the Trump administration put forward to keep businesses like these afloat throughout the Coronavirus Pandemic.

Props to Hov for this one.

Hopefully, this won’t also serve a roadmap for racists to terrorize Black business owners as we’ve all learned in 2020 no good deed goes unpunished in Trump’s Amerikkka.

Still, we’re glad to see Jay continue to do his part to help the community in new ways, shapes, and forms and we commend him for not sitting on the sidelines like others who’ve made a luxurious life for themselves.

Give it up for Shawn Carter, y’all.
