One thing we know about Jay -Z ‘s music is that it is steady evolving. As he matures in life so does his music. His 4:44 album might be the most matured out of his whole collection of number one albums as he taught young African Americans how to invest instead of throw money at strip clubs. He even spoke to how his misbehaving in his marriage was stupid. His music isn’t the only thing that is lately helping society.

His company Roc Nation is to invest $3 million  in an app Promise, which seeks to deliver “a cost-effective, more humane alternative to incarceration by extending the capabilities of community supervision, improving long-term outcomes for individuals and communities.”

“We are increasingly alarmed by the injustice in our criminal justice system,” JAY-Z said “Money, time and lives are wasted with the current policies. It’s time for an innovative and progressive technology that offers sustainable solutions to tough problems. Promise’s team, led by co-founder and CEO Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins, is building an app that can help provide ‘liberty and justice for all’ to millions.”

The app will help those in the pretrial process who can’t afford bail. After being assessed, participants will get a personalized plan that will monitor and support their obligations by setting reminders to court appearances, drug testing, substance abuse treatment, and any other procedures. Jay -Z we salute and keep being an inspiration.
