Kanye West’s philanthropic foundation, renamed this year in honor of his late mother, is partnering with the Live to Give Campaign for an Election Day rap concert that aims to promote community empowerment.

 

      The Give Back Concert, to be held on Nov. 4 in Washington D.C., is specifically focused on inspiring young adults to vote in the presidential election.

 

      Pre-sale purchasers will get to meet Washington Wizards player Antawn Jamison at a private meet and greet at the D.C. ESPN Zone, while the first 200 will attend a pre-concert meet and greet with the performers.

 

       So far the organization has hinted that the first performer had his first two albums debut at No. 1 on Billboards Top 200 chart, and the second has won a Grammy, four BET awards, and a Teen Choice award.       

       All ticket proceeds will go to select charities. Pre-sale tickets are on sale until Oct. 9 through www.livetogiveback.org or by phone (301) 605-5324.
