Jay-Z Appearance In Trenton Not Confirmed
Representatives for a peace rally taking place in Trenton New Jersey have revealed that superstar rapper Jay-Z is not confirmed to attend the rally.
News broke yesterday (April 5th) that a coalition of rappers led by Russell Simmons and the Rev. Al Sharpton would hold a “Stop the Violence” rally this weekend, after a seven-year-old girl was gang raped in the city.
She was allegedly sold for sexual favors by her 15-year-old sister, who has been charged in the case, along with five men who raped the seven-year-old.
While Simmons and the Rev. Al Sharpton have confirmed their appearances, Mayoral candidate Shahid Watson stated that Jay-Z was not yet confirmed as a celebrity participant.
"It's not a done deal. Jay-Z has not gotten back to us but Russell Simmons, Rev. Al SharptonÂ and the PeaceKeepers are confirmed," Watson told The Trentonian.
Yesterday, Mayor Douglas H. Palmer revealed that he would not attend the “Stop the Violence” rally, which is taking place at the Lighthouse Outreach Ministry, this Saturday (April 10th).
The event is organized by Hip-Hop mogul Russell Simmons and Dennis Muhammad’s PeaceKeepers organization.
