Jay-Z has agreed to help out non-profit group Word Above the Street in raising awareness about water conservation. The rap mogul is among several artists who will participate in the group’s Water Tank Project. As part of the initiative, Hov will help design 300 of New York City’s water tanks into public artworks.

The 12-week project will begin during the spring and summer of 2013 and is being funded by major supporters like The Ford Foundation and the Dorothea Leonhardt Foundation. The environmental project was created by filmmaker and activist Mary Jordan along with Sotheby’s North and South America curator Lisa Dennison, among many others.

Props to Jay-Z for getting involved in this noteworthy cause. It’s always good to see artists take active steps in saving the planet while helping others. This also could be a great opportunity for Beyonce to flex her artistic muscle, since she reportedly took up painting as hobby.

According to The Sun, the R&B mom is a budding Picasso with her paint and brushes. “While her baby Blue Ivy is sleeping, she’s been getting the brushes out. It’s a way for her to unwind,” said a source. “She has already completed four canvases, including one of husband Jay-Z holding their daughter.”

Let’s hope Jay and Bey bring their artistic vision together on the Water Tank Project.
