According to the NY Times, Hov will be celebrating the release of Blueprint 3, by performing at Madison Square Garden on Sept. 11, 2009, and donating the proceeds to the New York Police and Fire Widow’s and Children’s Benefit Fund. Obviously, that will be a huge benefit for the families left behind from the original 9-11 tragedy. The show is reportedly going to be broadcast on Fuse (which also broadcast Kanye’s recent concert…so big up to them).

(now this is what I call a dope record release celebration. It also counters any public perception that the use of 9-11 as a drop date post-2001 was insensitive)
