Jay-Z_Rocawear_Designed_Arthur_Ashe_Tee

Jay-Z has designed a Rocawear limited edition T-Shirt honoring African-American pro tennis legend Arthur Ashe. The Tee will be sold in New York during one on professional tennis’ Grand Slam championships, the U.S. Open. Advantage Jigga for real. Proceeds from the shirt will benefit the National Junior Tennis and Learning Network, a tennis organization Ashe co-founded and other charitable causes including Arthur Ashe Endowment for the Defeat of AIDS.

“I am thrilled that someone of Jay-Z’s stature would take part in this project,” said Jeanne Moutoussamy-Ashe, Arthur Ashe’s widow. “This shirt will honor the legacy of my husband and remind people of his contributions to both the sport of tennis and this country’s underprivileged youth.”

The U.S. Open takes place August 31 – September 13 in Flushing, New York.
