During the 2011 NBA All Star festivities in Los Angeles Jay-Z and LeBron James took the time for some philanthropic endeavors. The two superstars helped to renovate a Boys and Girls Club in East L.A. and sponsored their annual dinner.
“We grew up in the same sort of communities,” Jay-Z told HipHollywood. “Lightning just struck for us in being who we are…These are our people. Marcy Projects is not much different from East L.A.”
LeBron spoke about their Two Kings dinner, which brought together many of their business partners, family and friends. Watch them both speak in the clip below.
