Jay Z auctioning basketball jerseys for charity

London: Hip hop mogul Jay Z is auctioning off limited-edition replicas of the personalised Brooklyn Nets jersey he wore for his recent homecoming concerts in New York to benefit charity.

The `99 Problems` hitmaker, real name Shawn Carter, returned to his native Brooklyn last month to officially launch the Barclays Center, the new home of his Nets basketball team, with eight sold-out gigs.

He performed each show wearing a black and white Nets jersey bearing the number four and his last name, Carter, and now he`s offered up 10 signed replicas to raise funds for the Shawn Carter Foundation, which aids financially-strapped students, reported Contactmusic.

Jay Z is a minority owner of the Brooklyn Nets and was instrumental in helping to relocate the team from New Jersey this year.
