Rolling Stone is reporting that Jay Z has signed on to take part in the annual Global Poverty Project as a headliner for the 2014 Global Citizen Festival taking place in New York’s Central Park in September.

Here’s what Hov had to say about how he plans to help end extreme poverty by the year 2030:

“I’m joining the 2014 Global Citizen Festival because I believe through actions, whether it be by raising awareness, getting involved or educating ourselves, the goal to end extreme poverty by 2030 is possible.”

The festival will also feature performances by the legendary Roots crew, Carrie Underwood, and No Doubt, among others.

The 2014 Global Citizen Festival goes down in Central Park on Saturday, Sept. 27.
