Default Jay-Z To Perform In 7 Cities In 24 Hours

Three days before the Nov. 21st release of his new album Kingdom Come, Jay-Z will embark on an ambitious undertaking – performing seven concerts in seven different U.S. cities…in 17 hours.

Titled The Jay-Z Hangar Tour, Jigga’s plane will take off Nov. 18 and before the day is through arrive at airports in Atlanta; Philadelphia; Washington, DC; New York; Chicago; Los Angeles; and Las Vegas.

The rap mogul will step out of the aircraft and perform a show in each airport hangar. The audience will be made up of contest winners, two of which will get the opportunity to travel with Jay-Z on his private jet on the day of the show.

Cingular, which is sponsoring the jaunt, gives customers with video-capable phones the ability to watch the shows on their devices.

Meanwhile, Jay-Z and Russell Simmons have joined forces to produce a public service announcement aimed at combating anti-Semitism.

The spot features Simmons, who founded Def Jam in 1984 with the company's current President Jay-Z asking viewers: "What's hot? Respect for people. What's not hot? Hating people for their color or religion."

Simmons serves as chairman of the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding, which aims to foster and develop positive relationships with other ethnic groups. Its president, Rabbi Marc Schneier, introduced the campaign last weekend at the World Jewish Congress Board of Governors meeting in Paris.

The PSA is slated to run in the U.S. in January to coincide with Martin Luther King Jr. day.
