On Wednesday May 2, 2012 Swizz Beatz hosted the fourth annual charity auction for The Bronx School of The Arts at Marquee in New York City.
His wife Alicia Keys, New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony and his wife Lala were among the notables in attendance. Swizz’ son KJ got the donations started by offering up $5,000 to help his peers expand their curriculum.
The record producer and entrepreneur has made no secret of his passion for painting and has passed that that love down to his children.
“Art has been such an inspiration in my kids life,” he told the audience. “Egypt walks around the house and is able to identify four major artists at 18 months. I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for art.”
