Another award is coming to the Carter household.

Jay-Z will be presented with the President’s Award during the 50th NAACP Image Awards on Sunday.

“The President’s Award is an honor we carefully bestow upon an individual, maintaining its significance and commitment to recognizing excellence in service that directly affects our community,” NAACP President Derrick Johnson said in a press release.

“Shawn Carter has been committed to shedding light on the issues that plague the Black community including systematic racism and unjust treatment under the law, utilizing his global platform to create everlasting change,” he continued. “There is no better time than now, as we celebrate our 50th year, to honor him with this award.”

The civil rights organization wants to recognize the “99 Problems” rapper for his business prowess and philanthropic efforts.



In a statement sent to Blavity, the organization praised Jay-Z for using “his platform for social good, intertwining his art and activism, through the work of his Shawn Carter Foundation and serving as Co-Founder of The REFORM Alliance."

"He was instrumental in bringing to life Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story, which shed deeper light on the impact of the verdict felt round the world, a mini-series on the tragic effect of solitary confinement as seen through TIME: The Kalief Browder Story, and also the animated documentary short, The War on Drugs is an Epic Fail, highlighting the unjust treatment of people of color, specifically Blacks and Latinos, as it relates to drug related crimes," the statement continued. 

Past recipients of the award include Lauryn Hill, Spike Lee and John Legend, according to Billboard.

As has been the case for the last decade, Jay-Z has received several wins this year.

 Hova’s iconic album The Blueprint was archived by the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry. Additionally, he shared The Vanguard Award for allyship from LGBTQ advocacy organization GLAAD with wife Beyoncé.

The 50th NAACP Image Awards will air on March 30.
