Despite all the controversy surrounding JAY Z‘s decision to stick with his collaboration with Barneys New York, the 44-year-old rapper has reportedly helped collect more than $1 million for his Shawn Carter Foundation.
One hundred percent of the collection’s profits were given directly to the foundation, as well as ten percent of all of Barneysâ€™ sales on the day of the lineâ€™s debut. The charity helps students in need pay for college.
A source close to the high-end store said figures were still be tallied on Friday (Dec. 4), the last day of sales, but profits had already broke a million.
The collection– which featured luxury items from Balenciaga, Proenza Schouler, Balmain, Lanvin and more– was released to Barneys amid reports of racial profiling against two Black customers.
