Jay Z Is Taking His Talents To The Middle East For The First Time

Jay Z is planning to perform in the Middle East for the first time ever.

The rapper was asked to perform at the Yasalam After-Race Concert on November 1st at Abu Dhabi's du Arena.

This performance will go down during the final evening of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix weekend in the United Arab Emirates.

Flash Entertainment Vice President Mike Fairburn said in a statement, "Jay Z is the biggest rap mogul and music icon on this planet. He was an obvious choice. Booking artists of high caliber is important since Abu Dhabi is one of the top circuits in the world."

Somehow, it feels like Abu Dhabi and Hov go hand-in-hand = $$$.
