Jay Z is spreading the word about his new passion project.
The 47-year-old rapper premiered Time: The Kalief Browder Story at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival at The Marc Theatre on Wednesday (January 25) in Park City, UT.
“More than ever, the people have to come together,” Jay, who is an executive producer on the SpikeTV documentary, told the audience (via Daily Beast). “We have to tell these stories, and we have to organize in a way that we never have before, because that’s the only thing that effects change. I hate to sound like such a cynic. Everything is based on votes, and who you can put in office.”
Jay-Z is all smiles while posing on stage alongside LeBron James and his award during the 2016 Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year Ceremony held at Barclays Center on Monday (December 12) in the Brooklyn borough of New York City.
“He is a dedicated family man, who married his childhood sweetheart, Savannah. Has three lovely children, the son who honors and worships his mother, Gloria. The friend who put his pose in position – we know where we come from! The only difference between us and someone who has their MBA… is opportunity,” the 47-year-old rapper expressed. “LeBron James has provided his friends with that opportunity. But, tonight we say thank you. Not just for your commitment to basketball, but for all you’ve done for the community. And thank you for how you’ve enriched the lives of all those around you. You messed around and got a triple double in real life – I wrote that joke myself.”
Michael was honored as the greatest Olympian of all time by fellow Olympian gymnast Aly.
“For me being able to have one more year where I came back and finished things exactly how I wanted,” Michael said during his speech. “I know there are some people out there who know what that feels like, I feel like I’m on top of the world. I was able to get married this year, have my first child. I literally feel like the luckiest man in the world.”

Kanye West abruptly ended his concert early on Saturday night (November 19) at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, Calif.
The 39-year-old rapper reportedly performed three songs before going off on a rant about his friends Beyonce and Jay Z.
“Beyonce, I was hurt! Cause I heard that you said you wouldn’t perform unless you won Video of the Year over me, and over ‘Hotline Bling,’” Kanye said. “In my opinion—now, don’t go trying to diss Beyonce, she is great. Taylor Swift is great. We are all great people, we are all equal. But sometimes, we be playing the politics too much and forgetting who we are—just to win. F-ck winning! F-ck looking cool!”
He continued, “I’ve been sent here to give y’all my truth—even at the risk of my own life, even at the risk of my own success, my own career. I’ve been sent here to give y’all the truth. Jay Z, call me, bruh! You still ain’t call me! Jay Z, call me! Jay Z, I know you got killers, please don’t send them at my head. Just call me! Talk to me like a man!”

“To know that my daughter can say, ‘I’m a boss and I can meet the president and have the option to do whatever I want in the world,’ is super exciting for me and it’s a part of progression,” Beyonce says in the clip.
